    Just needs a little tweaking. I agree that you might want to try Prusa Slicer. I would start with a hotter first layter height and a little higher nozzle? Keep tweaking, you are close! Good luck...

    I agree with Roberts, check the stepper voltage. If too low, they can skip steps.
  9. Sense Scanner

    This is a rough print of a Sense scan. It printed much better on our other 3D printer.

    I think at that price point you are going to get the cheapest electronics and extruders. It will get you started but you will be chasing it for a while to get good results.

    I have found that printers with frames that are made of 80-20 aluminum can become "loose" after a while. If you have a lot of long prints, you would be surprised how much zig-zag motion that transmit...

    Do not know anything about the company but the price seems very cheap? My only concern is they offer no heated build plate option and finding a heater for that size might be difficult? Without it, yo...

    Bigger Printer
