    you know a nema 17 stepper motor is about $10 and a really easy fit ?

    Also check the connector cables as stepper motors almost never die, but cables are often loose or damaged when fitted.

    well bridge is one of the taulman filaments I found to be stupidly hard to print.
    Gave up in the end.

    36.66mm/s
    seems a bit fast - try 20mm/s and 260c
    And switch speed to mm/s - just easier...

    mymain issue with a printed mask is simple.
    The only part of that mask that is a viral filter is the actual filter pad you insert into the holder.

    that's a bugger that you don;t have a heated bed.
    For that kind of money, it's the very least you should expect.

    The only things I print on unheated beds are flexibles.

    why can't you print with flexibles ?

    You have a direct drive extruder - that's the most important thing. Most flexibles print under 240c - so no issue with hotend.
    They all also print best on...

    what did you do to the printbed ?
    Looks like unheated acrylic - that can't be right ?

    auto levelling on an I3 is kind of not that much use.
    You have to do the manual bed levelling. All the 'auto level' does is map irregularities in the bed's surface.
    And it's much simpler to just...

    it's all fine.
    The only stuff that will definitely clog pretty much any printer is CHEAP woodfill filament.
    the decent stuff uses very fine fibres and is fine.

    you could try replacing the heating element/cartridge, they're fairly cheap and pretty straightforward to change on most machines.

    Have you upgraded simplify 3d to 4.1 ?
    And if so when ?

    use petg.
    :-)

    Unless you have an enclosed print volume 3d printed abs is kind of pointless.
    Pla is generally much more durable for outdoor parts.

    But pet-g does not need heated enclosure...

    If you've got real money to spend - then the hyrule line of machines will do pretty much ANYTHING from cnc, multi head operations, medical biogels and they've even got a chilled liquid extruder !

    what machine, what slicer, how is it connected: usb, network, sd card etc.

    what's wrong with manual bed levelling ?
    Takes 2 minutes and if you change he levelling nuts for nylock locking nuts you do it maybe once or twice a year.
