    cool - always good to have experienced users opinions :-)

    Generally speaking monoprice machines (which are always made by someone else and rebadged) are decent bits of kit.

  2. cool curing station for people with resin printers

    So I was looking through amazon.com and came across this setup for final curing of resin models.

    My only objection would be the bowden extruder setup.
    You will struggle with the softer flexible materials.

    Without a direct drive extruder - flexibles are tricky.

    bear in mind that diode lasers are weak and quite specific in what they can do.
    usually with an all in one the output is between 500mw (almost useless) to 1500 mw (useful for certain things).

    Hmm tricky opne.
    The he3d k200 was my 3rd printer, and while after three years it's still factory spec hardware, electronics and firmware - I did make some mods to improve things.

    I wouldn't...

    was the part still attached to the print bed ? Or had it detached ?

    Also you probably need to print a bit hotter. 240-250.

    That's not stringing, looks a lot like the part's detached to me. ...

    okay - couple of issues.
    You need to calibrate the print bed. manually. A sheet of 90gsm paper works best. Getting the printbed physically level is the single most important thing you can do. ...

    your calibratio is way off.

    The 'rippled' areas are where the print head is too close to the bed.

    If you adjust the z-height/gap upwards in increments of 0.05mm you should be able to hit the...

    pretty sure you can't print a dwg file.

    all-in-ones are a waste of money if you're buying it for the laser.

    And the laser on the creality all-in-one is 500mw. basically a small magnifyig glass on an overcast day does a better job.

    222 for petg ?
    oh hell no :-)

    usually you're looking at somewhere between 240 and 255.
    I have seen people claim 225 - but I guess it depends on the brand and formulation of the pet-g.

    But...
