    The only issue i know of with the mk3 - and this was back in spetember, so may no longer be a 'thing' - is the head collision setting doesn't always work.

    I know this as I tried it at the tct...

    nope you missed a post :-)
    The creality has printer issues.
    The prusa mk3 definitely doesn't count as a large i3.

    creality are very generous to youtube reviewers.
    Also quite specific in what you have to do to get a free printer.

    At the end of the day I don't blame the reviewers - we're all trying to earn a...

    well there are differences between 3d printing issues and 3d PRINTER issues.
    everyone has the former, it's mainly a matter of experience and lateral thinking - but with a good machine you don't...

    for a beginner looking for quality over fuss ? A big i3 with very definite issues - not a good idea.

    The prusa mini might be a good idea though - much cheaper than the mk3 and actually more...

    not sure what I'm supposed to be seeing.
    looks like wood filament - which is always rough till you sand it.

    so what's the actual problem as it 'looks' fine to me.

    Yeah quality control on cheap printers is always going to be an issue.

    When people say: 'here's two cheap machines, which one is best'.
    We invariably try to encourage them to buy a more...

    admirable project and applicable to everyone at the moment.
    Also this actually makes a lot more sense than printing masks that need replaceable filters and aren't easily sterilised.

    the xy-2 is simply an ender 3 clone.
    My opinions on this should be clear - don't buy one :-)

    However if you are looking at the x5sa pro - then in the same price range is the prusa mini. ...

    either reinforce the corners/holes(make them slightly thicker), or don't put them so close to the edge :-)
    Or use smaller screws/bolts :-)

    pretty straightforward.
    Adjust your z-offset in the slicer, I usually add 0.1mm at a time untill I get the sweet spot where things stick but also come off easily.
    You can also adjust the printbed...

    youtube reviews generally fall into 2 categories.
    1) people given the printer - don't care who you are (well maybe angus or thomas sandelerer are big enough to not give a crap) if someone is giving...

    well if it's for radio controlled servo motors, then 3d printed pla should be fine.
    3mm pla is also pretty stiff and strong.
    I usually go to 2mm for most things.

    0.5mm setting ?
    seems a bit big for an sla - but you don't say what the 0.5mm is applied to.

    Yes you missed something.
    You ignored the reasons I gave for why creality suck.

    Weird as you claim to be an engineer :-)

    Also creality have one of the worst reputations for build quality...

    $2000 for a one off smallish print from a printing service ?

    You've got something screwed up there for sure.

    Have you done a design at all ?

    cnc engravers - I admit I know absolutely nothing about. One of our members has built his own recently, look for that thread.

    what slicer are you using ?

    It's like you're over extruding - which is common with cura - download and try prusa slicer: https://www.prusa3d.com/prusaslicer/
