    you're probably printing the second (and consequent) layers too fast.
    what speed are you using for first layer and other layers ?

    You need either to be a marketing genius or come up with a specific niche design that nobody else has.

    that is really weird.
    Transparent pla is usually really easy to use, tends to string slightly more than coloured, but - I find - is tougher than coloured pla.
    Did you check the diameter ?

    weird.
    I love the flash forge filament :-)

    230 is too hot. 210 is the sweet spot. I can print 0.4mm layer at 150mm/s at 210c with a 0.5mm nozzle (that's on my he3d k200 delta though) Never take...

    That said it's made for heated enclosures which I don't have :-)

    sounds like trying to print either too cold or too fast, or both.

    The flashforge transparent red is superb stuff, but does like a little heat.

    in simplify3d there are also settings for single line walls, wall infill settings, and all very easy to find and adjust.

    many specific issues with resin machinjes, not least of which is the cost of the resins.

    umm yeah, printing faster than 150mms on an i3 is probably more than a little ambitious.

    to get prints that fast on any machine, you need really good higher-temp pla and - obviously - change the...

    well both are i3's that use a bowden extruder. So I wouldn't touch either and you will struggle with flexibles.
