    screens are usually interchangeable. You have to set it in the firmware.

    Most boards come with firmware installed. Depending on what you buy, you can change it if you want to.

    I'd use it. Unless it needs an extrusion temperature your machine can't reach. There is no logical reason you can't use it.

    the z axis wobble is reserved for machnes with just the one z axis motor - you know, like creality invented :-)
    Or is that x-axis wobble ?

    It really is not an issue with a dual motor machine....

    Also there is a network socket on the board which I can connect to the k40's server and put the printer on my workshops native wired network.

    where do you live ?
    I can think of a number of ways to do this.
    But, as with all things customised it's bloody difficult without the person's limbs in attendance :-)

    well to me they look like layer start/end lines.
    What is your layer start set at ?

    Unless i need a particular area very smooth, I always set my start and end points to 'random' .

    right this is where it gets complicated :-)
    There are possibly hundreds of types and formulations of 'nylon'.

    I have found 2 that work reasonably well in an unenclosed printer.

    the plate will have a pei coating.
    Things stick when hot and release when cold.
    Great stuff.

    Plus you can always use an adhesive (hairspray, pva, magigoo, dimafix etc) if you want to.
    So...

    Hmm, make sure you can get 2.85mm filament easily.
    $450 seems high for a 5 year old machine.
    Get it down to $300 and it might be worth a punt :-)

    we need more details:
    printer, print settings, filament, slicer, temperatures, speeds etc.
    The more details you give us - the better chance we have of diagnosing a problem.

    Yes :-)

    1) This is partly because the 3d printing market changes week on week. I don't think any other tehnical tool has ever had the evolutionary speed of 3d printing.

    Hmm, what software do you have access to ?

    As far as I can see the big problem is that dxf files are purely vectors and surfaces. They are not actual solid shapes.

    the creatr 3 v2 is an idex system - so for me that's a no brainer, I'd get that one. Also a very good size print volume for an enxlosed machine.

    Unless you have money in exchange for designs - in which case, nope, uh ur, nothing on thingiverse ;-)

    That looks about right.

    also when you say 'learn to use' - what exactly do you mean ?
    Making your own models
    modifying the hardware
    using a slicer
    getting different filaments to work
    messing about with firmware
    etc...
