I am interested to know what problems people regard as being the most irritating about 3D printing, whether it is problems to do with using the printer, problems with using software or with materials. Also If something needed to be changed about the way 3D printing process currently operated what would people like to see changed?

So if nozzle blockages are your main gripe with 3D printing how do you think this problem can be eleviated?

Hi I have a a net A8 printer and I’m having problems I have replaced the motherboard for a new omni a8 board follow the wiring diagram exactly as it tends to be virtually the same as the old motherboard now when I turn my printer on everything seems to be backwards when I wanted to go up it goes down when I wanted to go down it goes up when I wanna move right it moves left et cetera obviously this is a problem as specially when you are trying to home everything as it goes the opposite end where the stoppers aren’t Can anybody help thank you

Hi @Andley603 ,

This is to do with the wiring of the stepper motors to the stepper motor drivers. Basically you need to reverse the port wiring. Here is a video from Printrbot that will give some explanation.



We don't know your board or stepper motors so check the wiring but this is the basic issue.
