    I have no idea what I'm looking at - just see a black plate ?

    So how on earth does that work ?
    every time you show a bit of the mumu it seems to get ever more complicated :-)

    basically, for the money, I don't think you can do bigger, better :-)

    I have no affiliation with formbot/vivedino - I wish they'd send me one - but alas, they haven't.

    so what's your actual budget ?

    My current favourite large format machines are the formbot t-rex series.

    supports usually have their own set of settings anyway.
    Even cura should do that. plus if you're using a dual extruder - then the second extruder will also have it's own settings. Just tell it to...

    Good luck :-)
    There is no reason it shouldn't be a decent printer.
    I've got one of the ctc plywood i3's - cheapest machine on ebay when i bought it.
    BUT - It DOES have: direct drive extruder,...

    I mean it is slightly stiffer than normal pla, but as the carbon fibre is just randomnly jumbled up it doesn't really add any strength.
    And while it will conduct electricity, it doesn't really do...

    only thing I can think of is that it cures layers a bit better, making the resin a little harder and the details a bit sharper.

    If you slot the ball in sideways, rather than from the bottom, then the vertical pull is as strong as the plastic.

    that's pretty cool.
    Seems like the screens are doing almost as much as the motherboards these days.

    it doesn't say it's an ender 3 pro.
    it's just a bog standard 'ender 3'.
    A lot of different companies make the 'ender 3' design.

    get a bunch of rubber gloves in. Also a light box and a dedicated workbench you don't mind getting resin on. Also, apparently it stinks, so extraction might be a good idea.
