    I paid US$350 for my X-Max but I feel like that was a lottery win of sorts. I "fixed" the alleged underextrusion problem by changing the filament routing. That printer is where I got the internal...

    With nylon, you'll certainly want an enclosed printer, one with an all-metal hot end, as the temperatures can reach the point at which a PTFE liner will degrade or otherwise become damaged. I have a...

    Here's my usual recommendation, as some readers will recognize.

    For your requirements of printing ABS, expect that the printer will have to be fully enclosed. You don't necessarily have to buy a...

    A number of programs (free) are "out there" that are easier to use than blender. Your slicer should be able to scale the model as you require. What slicer are you using?
