    you said that changing over the extruder gear made no difference. So why should the new one be any different ?
    Or is there stuff you didn't tell us :-)

    depends entirely on your settings and what resuklts you want to get

    Using flashprint at 0.3mm layer height and 70mm/s 15% infill and 3 perimeters and layers - it clocks in at 5.47 hours and 133gms...

    never seen support material on concrete printers. The trick seems to be getting the consistency and recipe of the cement stiff enough to hold it's own shape.

    Depends on how large an item you...

    just do a web search.
    If you can't do that - then you've got no chance in changing a board :-)

    speed and quality won't change much.
    That depends more on your stepper notor controllers, so if they're better, then - yep could be some improvements.
    But speed and quality are more down to the...

    what machine are you using ?
    The only way I'd ever attempt a building in nylon is it was on an sls machine. In which case, no problems at all.

    The one in your link doesn't include and cad files, so you can't make an stl.

    so you're making proper end usage parts, 80 at a go !
    I am impressed :-)

    The pei 'stick when hot but not when cold' does work well.
    Pretty sure printbite is a type of pei. The sheet on my...

    225c for pla is a bit too hot - try 210. retraction speed should really be faster, 50-60mm/s.

    Flashprint is a very good slicer, way better than most. Certainly much better than cura :-)

    yes mineral oil should not effect pla.

    Yes the unheated bed is a problem.
    But you can print all the exotic plas: wood, flexible etc. They actually stick and warp less than normal pla. I usually...

    so did you get yours at the discount for first 50 price peter ?

    Also make sure you get a couple of spare belts with it - at least.

    Everything else looks like standard components. But the belts...

    yeah first thing I'd do is make a tensionable belt. Sounds like they loosen a couple bolts, pull the roller to tension and lock with bolts. I'd make it so the bolts tensioned the bed.
    It might work...

    yeah, that's pretty cool. Keep meaning to do some credit card phone stands with the klicknprint and some flexible pla.

    plus the filaments made with metal powders tend to be very weak. I have some bronzefill, and once you've spent 3 days anding and polishing it - it does look and feel like metal. Just has no real...

    that 'Wauuuuuuuu..' is really getting on my wick. You're clearly a spammer of some kind. So that's fair warning :-)

    I can see a few things that might cause an issue - but damn !
    Talk about changing the price point :-)
