    I generally have the travel the same as the printspeed - or 70mm/s at most.

    the thing about fixed side by side dual extruders is this:

    1) Unless PERFECTLY levelled one head will always catch on the print at some point and bugger it up.
    I actually sand off any protuding...

    do not touch ender 3 with a VERY long board !
    terrible design, lots of issues and just don't !

    For nylon you really could do with an enclosed printer.

    oh yeah, the forge is the most important part of making sintered metal parts.
    Too hot and the print sags, too cold and it won't anneal properly.

    pet-g needs to print slower than pla.
    anything much over 40mm/s and you'll struggle.
    Also needs to be a little hotter than pla.

    alice was a spam bot :-)

    Bear in mind that you can always stack printers. People tend not to think vertically.

    My mini delta sits on top of my normal sized delta.

    check print speed isn't higher for the support.
    I know infill speed is usually higher than print speed - so maybe it's the same with supports.

    well I think it's lousy software anyway, so scrap cura and try slic3r or replicator-g with the slic3r engine.
    Or do the decent thing and get simplify3d :-)

    probably z-heaight too close to the printbed - try raising it by 0.1mm

    what are you actually printing ?

    have a look at either the flashforge adventurer 3 or monoprice voxel (exactly same machine).
    The monoprice rebadged is cheaper, under $400.

    cool, quite why the printer manufacturers don't use better bed materials is a mystery.
    a thin sheet of PEI is very cheap.

    it doesn't help that they use the worst i3 design out there.

    well that all looks good.
    To be honest, just going by all the posts round here, I'd send the printer back, and get something less problematical - which at the moment is just about any other...
