3DPrintingDB, a new 3D printing website, is aiming to make printing easier by providing a repository of aggregated printing settings for well-known 3D printing materials. The repository contains settings for filament types from individual brands.

Getting started with 3D printing can be difficult for many reasons. Every 3D printer is different, which means that, until you get to know your machine inside out, establishing its ideal settings can be a challenge. And that’s not even factoring in the additional problem of materials: every filament behaves in its own way too, which means a PLA from one brand might behave quite differently to a PLA from another brand.

Uniqueness - Printing - Products - Makers - Opinions

This uniqueness among 3D printing products means that makers often have to refer to the opinions of others just to get started. 3D printing forums like the 3D printing subreddit and RepRap board contain a wealth of information about printer-specific and filament-specific printing settings, but trawling through these sites for information can be a slow process. Moreover, there are obviously many printers and filaments whose ideal settings have yet to be discussed in detail.

3D printer user [Pheneeny], an active contributor on Reddit and Thingiverse, has devised a solution for 3D printer users. A new website, 3DPrintingDB, aims to collate and aggregate filament-specific 3D printing settings for every material on the market. Users are able to submit their preferred settings, and the site provides visitors with an average of these user-provided numbers.

Site - Settings - Filament - Print - Temperature

The site keeps it simple by listing eight settings for each filament: print temperature, bed temperature, ideal build surface, fan power, retraction level, printing speed, and the option to list further build surfaces that either work well or work badly. Users...
