    lol board look faster than I though they were - you 'pimped' it ?
    Oh yeah, strap a couple solar panels to your back to extend your range :-)

    yep - ender 3 is the cheapest nastiest most overrated printer on the planet.

    It takes all the good points of the i3 design and throw them all away.

    Rather than change the springs it makes...

    looks like you need to level the bed.
    Unless you switch the levellng nuts for locking nuts, vibration will cause the bed to regularly need levelling.
    Time scale makes sense as well.

    I know this one !
    lol
    You use a mosfet. basically mains is connected directly to the mosfet, that is then connected to the correct connectors on the motherboard. So the controls go thorugh the...

    Alexa's (It and my niece were named long before amazon stole the name) back up and running.
    And looking new and shiny.

    So here's the thing.

    standard 24volt power supplies - look for 24v led power supplies.
    same thing but always a lot cheaper if sold by an led company over a 3d printer supply company.

    Be an idea to work out what's...

    how can you have a 500mm bed with a 381mm (15inch) centre ?

    Other than that, sounds good.
    But the printer itself isn't that large - so not sure why you want nema 23 motors.

    The best thing...

    As far as I can remember it's a standard pro clone.
    So pretty much industry standard parts throughout.
    In fact the replicator clones more or less defined 'industry standard' for desktop 3d...

    Well I guess i just jinxed myself.
    The ptfe tube was buggered, So drilled that out, fitted new one and managed to twist the end off the nozzle leaving the thread in the damn hotend !

    So...

    just changed my nozzle, I believe this is the 3rd 0.5mm !
    They are dirt cheap brass - so I don't expect them to last forever. They're averaging about 1,75km a nozzle. Which doesn't seem...

    you're actually printing quite fast for abs, and fairly cool as well.
    And the reason it takes so long is because you are using very thin layers.
    3d printing is NOT fast :-)
    Patience is your best...

    is the crack (pictures would help) alway at the same height ?
    also (the usual).
    what filament, what temp, speed etc

    No - metal 3d printers start at around $150,000
    And that's for something really fiddly like the desktop metal and markforge. Those are the 'cheap' metal printers !

    it'd be a tricky print. Any orientation you print it, it you'll need supports inside the tube at some point. So a dual nozzle setup with soluble support is going to be your best option for fdm. ...

    hmm - not sure you can put marlin on a mightyboard. Never heard of anyone doing so - but then sailfish (or the other versions) in my opinion are vastly superior to marlin anyway.

    the flashforge red is just an amazing filament - one of the best I've ever used. used a LOT of it over the last 2-3 years.

    It is amazing just how varied the printing is between different brands...

    unfortunately we're stuck with it.
    Some one obviously thinks it'll make them more money.

    if it's 260 then it's NOT pla.

    I've tried pla with carbon fibres and it prints at normal pla temperatures.

    so why have you gone for the central bed support over the side supports ?

    I mean it is a pretty substantial central support. But surely the side supports make a more stable bed ?
