    with smaller nozzles you need hotter temps and slower print speeds.

    It's all about viscosity and flow rate and cooling speed.

    So hotter pla has less viscosity and will flow better - but with...

    things like the internal channels for the water are pretty easy. 3d printing is excellent for making internal features.

    But again it all boils down to the skill of the designer.

    the tower prints look fine.

    the weirdest thing is the best temp is 220c - what filament are you using again ?
    It's the ckeanest layer with no blobs.
    That's pretty weird if it's pla.

    Second...

    well the texturing can be done in the design process, that's not the problem :-)

    Making a 3d print watertight can be a tricky process, you all but need to print it completely solid.

    if you're printing pla at 235 - then you have a serious issue with the either the hotend or the temperature sensor.

    I can push pla through at 150mm's for a 0.4mm layer height at 210.

    nice looking printer.

    Sounds like your bed is levelled with too large a gap.
    what slicer are you using ?

    plus I don't read polish - so no clue as to the actual printer details and...

    well for one thing whenever an advert says: 'easiest to use printer ever' - that usually means when something inevitably does go wrong - you're screwed :-)

    Automatic levelling can often be more trouble than it's worth - and it's really of any use when the surface of the bed is not level.

    the photon gets good reviews - but then all the cheap resin machines get pretty good reviews.

    They are very simple machines - mechanically, so not much to go wrong.

    But do some research into...

    I'm currently in the process of upgrading a sapphire pro. And one of the things I always do is replace bed level nuts with locking nuts.

    print slower and increase retraction length and speed.
    You've got a direct drive extruder so you can run retractions at up to 70mm/s quite happily.
    Retraction distance wise start at about 2mm and...

    how much are they asking for it ?

    Ah right - one of these: https://www.creality3dofficial.com/products/creality-cr-20-pro-3d-printer

    Right so, looking at it, it's basically...

    work on the principle that the power supply for most 3d printers is somewhere between 100-300 watts.
    I've rarely seen anything over 350 watt listed in a speification.

    well just built a new machine for a client - so I'll try it on that one as well :-)

    What speeds are you printing at ?

    sounds interesting - I'll have a look.
    The printer is a fairly basic mini delta.
    Doesn't even look like it's even got a heated bed.

    So no, you really don't want to buy it :-)
