    very nice indeed !

    so what's the biggest thing you can make ?

    You could probably print the main body of a pinball cabinet in 2 or 3 pieces :-)

    Sooo, how fast can you run it ?

    try adding pictures now.
    also a pic of the printer might also be useful.

    As long as oyu print the gaskets solid, should be ideal :-)

    bear in mind the 300% is assuming you are using 0.1mm layer height.
    If you make the layer taller, remember to adjust the initial layer height accordingly.

    You never want to go over 0.4mm.

    Hmm, well if you grip the heatblock at the wrong place when changing the nozzle, you can damage the wires for the heater cartridge and the thermistor.
