    okay so this is where the amount of detail you give us is important :-)

    How big is the print ?

    Also pictures of the failure and succesful print would also be useful.

    There's obnly so much...

    as for design level.
    It would be fairly easy to do in openscad - the cad program I use.
    Fusion 360 has a steeper learning curve.

    But design is almost entirely down the the creativity of the...

    Yeah a printer that runs off cloud software is useless when the company goes under and the cloud blows away.

    You'd probably need to use a generic motherboard and standard firmware to get it...

    it looks like the darkest part is printing ar around 5mm/s.
    0% is a blue so dark it's practically black.

    To change how fast it prints, you need to change the speed of the various areas of the...

    yeah well my advice is pretty much based on what works for me.
    As well as taking the viscosity and flow rate of the material in mind.

    pet-g, even at high temps, does not become the fast flowing...

    different colours and brands of pla will behave very differently.

    Clearly your orange pla is shrinking more than the grey.
    So either pop some print glue on the bed, or slow the first layer down...

    well sdcards are the cheapest and simplest.

    But if you want to automate things, then raspberry pi's and the 'octo' family of sofyware is probably your cheapest bet.

    I suppose it's not worth...

    nice - now we just need speed and temperature settings.

    That's more the idea than just pictures of prints.
    and please, NO BENCHIES !

    you got any example that it doesn't ?

    bloody hell - 7 minutes 30 to heat up !
    Thought you had a mosfet for the bed ?

    How on earth can it take so long to get to temp ?
    The lights are nice - but why does it take so long to heat up ?...

    I think the rubber washer and tighten the bolt, is probably your best bet.
    It depends how much stress/pressure you you want the joint to withstand.

    the leica is around £20,000

    so in the category of industrial scanners.
    Not exactly a budget option.

    Also modern photogrammetry, with current high resolution cameras, works just fine with...

    number of issues that i can see.

    movement speed way way way too fast.
    Set movement speed to the same as the print speed or at best a little faster, and it cuts down on sudden changes of speed...

    yep i concur, either a looses connection - check the stepper lead and connectors.
    Or it needs a new driver.

    If you are lucky the board will use removeable drievrs, which just involves removing...

    you've kind of missed the point martin.
    The idea is to find something that can be printed as a 'benchmark' model. That is - and i cannot state this firmly enough - NOT a sodding, useless waste of...

    Okay, well I've got 2 'calibration' prints i use.

    Both useful to keep and great to give away.
    And I will say that a printer needs to be dialled in well to produce both.

    So the first is this...

    it's probably the webbrowser or operating system you are using.

    I've given up trying to access the forum from anything but a windows device.

    basically any slicer for monochrome resin printers does this.
    So check out chitubox as well, it's the free go to slicer for most budget resin printers.
