    I agree with CA that I typically just let the bolt cut it's own threads, but it takes some experimentation to get the printed hole sized right to make this work. I've also found that the finer pitch...

    Yeah, I was going to say the same thing about cylinder vs. linear extrude applied to a circle. I also typically use a $fn for each instance of a circle, sphere or cylinder so that I can adjust the...

    I don't think it would be fair for me to try to address that, based on the limited printing that I've done. I also know that the filament I have now prints crappier than the filament I used to have,...

    Similar to RobH2, I only rarely use the printer these days - my time seems to continually get tied up in other things. With one exception, I've been pretty happy with the BMG. The big advantages...
