Is there a way to make my 3D prints airtight?

Yes. The issue is, that there are small gaps between the layers. But you can coat the print in an airtight material. While epoxy and similar materials work very well, they are somewhat too viscous and ...

This is probably the filament. I've had the exact same issue on my Ender 3 Pro and solved it by baking the filament. I suggest you try with another filament just to make sure. Or bake a length of the ...

When I print with a raft on my 3D printer, the raft will not peel off. What settings can I change to fix this?

Rafts fuse with models because the filament gets overheated. To avoid this, keep the temperature in the room between between 23 and 28 °C. Malfunctioning extruder fans, a heater & thermocouple, ...

When printing multiple objects at once, or traveling over gaps in prints, I get a lot of stringing. How can I help this?

Stringing can arise in at least four ways: Retracting the filament by an insufficient length to prevent material from oozing out. Not retracting the filament at all before some or all travel moves, ...

Printer stops printing at the same spot for every model

This behavior can be explained by a truncated gcode file - the printer gets to the end of all that's there of the file, and considers it done. A truncated file can be a symptom of corrupt storage ...

PLA Globbing up on the Extruder Nozzle

I would think the filament has absorbed too much moisture. You can bake it and then try again. I bake 2 hours at 50 degrees which works ok for me. But the first time I did this some of the roll tried ...
