    23mm3/s sounds about right for a Magnum with PETG. That's about 2.5 times higher than a standard E3D V6.

    If you want some giggles though, the CHT nozzle comes in 1.4 and 1.8mm variants. :D I've...

    The X5SA is a bit of a lucky dip. It's a decent frame (and indeed, that frame has been repurposed by several designs, such as the VzBot), with bottom of the barrel components and electronics. It's a...

    Y stop is constantly triggered. May be a busted cable/switch, or the endstop is set the wrong way in the Marlin config.
    Also sounds like the Y-axis direction is inverted. This means whenever you...

    Finished my chess set

    Printing was the easy part. Making all the 'voxels' was not much fun.
    Full sized set. Took about 120 hours of printing.

    Common point of failure for this model, IIRC, is the mosfet or the terminals at the board dying. It's a 12v system so there's a few amps going through the wires.

    Looks like integrated steppers + lead screws. I prefer them. Less bits to come loose. Just treat the combined stepper+leadscrew as though it were a stepper with short shaft, coupler and leadscrw.

    On the plus side, the frame looks beast!
    On the downside, it's pretty likely you're going to need to do the electronics from scratch.
    In terms of what it is, it's some sort of Prusa i3 clone. I'd...

    Alternative idea - If there's space for infill, then adjusting the infill percentage will change the density. E.g., 100% infill should sink, but 50% might be enough to float. You could also tweak...

    It can be quite hard to use Cura (Not impossible, but there's a lot of work involved). The firmware on the A3 is very touchy about things like decimal places, so there's sometimes a need to tweak the...

    My big silly geology/3D print shelves

    Came together quite nicely. Shame I missed doing monotonic infill on a few of them.

    I would expect that could be done, but not with the Prusa design. I doubt they'll do a 3mm extruder. Main challenge would be working the design around the loadcell, heatbreak thermistor and other new...

    Yes. Use meshmixer. Then use the create solid tool. Set a high resolution and accuracy, using the preserve sharp edges option, and sets minimum thickness that suits your printer.
