    hmm - not sure you can put marlin on a mightyboard. Never heard of anyone doing so - but then sailfish (or the other versions) in my opinion are vastly superior to marlin anyway.

    the flashforge red is just an amazing filament - one of the best I've ever used. used a LOT of it over the last 2-3 years.

    if it's 260 then it's NOT pla.

    I've tried pla with carbon fibres and it prints at normal pla temperatures.

    so why have you gone for the central bed support over the side supports ?

    I mean it is a pretty substantial central support. But surely the side supports make a more stable bed ?

    Some models aren't always flat on the 'table' before sliging.

    Actually warmer resin should set quicker and be less viscous so should give sharper prints too.
