    check your infill speed settigs and the perimiter speed settings.
    Set them both the same and see if that makes any difference.

    Also try changing to a single perimeter outline.

    Absolutely :-)

    Have a go with prusaslicer - it sounds like the speeds of infill, perimiters etc are probably different in the different slicers and profiles.

    yeah the ender 5 is a pretty solid cartesian machine.
    I just wish creality would stop using bowden extruders. Just not necessary on a machine with good and even z-axis support.
    It wouldn't make...

    If you use a print bureau and if you pick the sls (laser sintered nylon) option. Then the print is always supported at all times.

    nope.
    Simplify3d does a whole bunch of things that I've yet to be able to do with anything else.

    Aesthetically, the layout, menu and profile system is streets ahead of the free slicers. And...

    what he said :-)

    I have to say, give me a cheap physical switch endstop over an optical any day.

    yes do that :-)

    Just make sure there is a small gap around each buttong so they don't stick together.

    Most print bureaus that use sls printers will use a minimum of 0.1mm gap between parts. ...

    right - you have it the wrong way round.

    Tightening the levelling knobs LOWERS the bed and moves it away from the nozzle.

    Okay for everyday cooling - but for large beads and thick layers you really need a focused nozzle blowing from each side of the print head. That stuff...

    You can even print it in yellow :-)

    Blender is more used for animation and pretty pictures/models.

    right - the most important aspect of the tenlog is that it uses LINEAR RAILs. The direct dribe extruders look good too - but that's something that can easily be added to most printers.

    350mm isn't that tall so as long as you don't print tall things really fast - the bed moving should not be an issue.
