Artillery Sidewinder X1 And Genius: Prusa Slicer Settings Bundle UPDATED

Artillery_SX1_Genius_Prusa_Config_Bundle
NOTICE: The original I released a week ago has been found to be incompatible with the actual release of Prusa Slicer 2.2.0. I apologize for this, but a few things changed I was not aware of, namely differences now with how files are saved and retrieved in the configuration bundle process of importing and exporting. The benefit I guess is both machines are in one package now. Add the fact that I never thought to install on a completely fresh machine that had never had Prusa Slicer installed on it, since I have been working with it since the early MK2 days on my test machines.   Heres a pretty easy and straightforward configuration bundle to import into Prusa Slicer. These are well dialed in basic settings and a good starting point. Prusa Slicer is one of the easiest to adjust to your needs and filament/types. This is a "detail" settings package, and...

Artillery SX1 And Genius Ribbon Cable Strain Relief - One Year Later...

3DN_SX1_EXT_Support_07_one_year3
The ribbon cables. Plague for some, and no consideration for others. Last year I introduced a fix for the problem some were having and I'm just here to report the findings after about, a year, on multiple machines. The one ribbon that went rogue last year May to date (the reason I devised the solution), has been the only one replaced. Yep. Each machine (6 and counting) has been happily chugging away almost daily since and I stopped concerning myself with the possibility of it happening around oh, October 2019. What did I do? No elaborate teardown, no wheel existed at the time to reinvent. I made a strain relief for the Extruder that (can) use the default cover, and the remaining points on the X and Z simply had (drum roll) a small bead of LOW temperature hot glue ran across the facing side of the connection. The fix was done in...

Artillery 3D Hornet: In Depth And Full Of Surprises...

3DN_HORNET_IMAGES_POSTC
Beginner? Budget? You know what? Personally and professionally I have a hard time giving it that label because of it's assumed quality that way as well as calling it budget because it's simply outperformed printers in much higher brackets so far. I'll do my best to explain why along the way and include some current final thoughts for you to think about. You'll notice it being difficult for me to contain my enthusiasm at times because well, I don't have problems with printers in general. I have set procedures and after working with hundreds of printers over the years now it takes alot to get me going. This one actually does. I did a earlier teaser video, and at the time my studio camera was on duty elsewhere, but in retrospect I'm glad its not embellished with lighting that can mislead print quality. It's just there and no voodoo, the prints are great. I...

Do you NEED to Upgrade or Modify Your Artillery (Or Any) 3D Printer? Most Of The Time, No.

3DN_Article_Nomods
Your 3D printer is very capable of awesome prints out of the box. It's true.  Mechanical, Art, High Detail, and just about anything else you can think of.   New users, while waiting for their sparkly new printer to arrive usually pour over internet resources hoping to arm themselves with the right information and even more tend to try to soak up as much useful information about 3D printing in general before they decided to jump in. Thats how it's supposed to be. The thing that people dont consider is there will be good information, and well, bad information. How do you know the difference? Well, consider what 3D printers are. They are tools. Precision TOOLS. Not toys, not casual hobby craft sports like glue guns or sticker albums. Another fact is, this is 2020 and the 3D printer technology has been around mainstream for a number of years now and, most manufacturers have things sorted out...
