    youtube reviews generally fall into 2 categories.
    1) people given the printer - don't care who you are (well maybe angus or thomas sandelerer are big enough to not give a crap) if someone is giving...

    well if it's for radio controlled servo motors, then 3d printed pla should be fine.
    3mm pla is also pretty stiff and strong.
    I usually go to 2mm for most things.

    0.5mm setting ?
    seems a bit big for an sla - but you don't say what the 0.5mm is applied to.

    Yes you missed something.
    You ignored the reasons I gave for why creality suck.

    $2000 for a one off smallish print from a printing service ?

    You've got something screwed up there for sure.

    Have you done a design at all ?

    cnc engravers - I admit I know absolutely nothing about. One of our members has built his own recently, look for that thread.

    lmao - wrong end of the stick entirely.
    He's not talking about something that prints ay 270 but something that - once printed - can take 270c as an external environmental temperature.

    Interesting.

    Now as a person who owns all three systems: 2 deltas, 2 cartesian replicator clone dual extruders and a prusa style i3, there are some practical things you have wrong and a few you...

    what slicer are you using ?

    It's like you're over extruding - which is common with cura - download and try prusa slicer: https://www.prusa3d.com/prusaslicer/

    you know a nema 17 stepper motor is about $10 and a really easy fit ?

    Also check the connector cables as stepper motors almost never die, but cables are often loose or damaged when fitted.

    well bridge is one of the taulman filaments I found to be stupidly hard to print.
    Gave up in the end.

    36.66mm/s
    seems a bit fast - try 20mm/s and 260c
    And switch speed to mm/s - just easier...

    The only part of that mask that is a viral filter is the actual filter pad you insert into the holder.

    that's a bugger that you don;t have a heated bed.
    For that kind of money, it's the very least you should expect.

    The only things I print on unheated beds are flexibles.

    why can't you print with flexibles ?

    You have a direct drive extruder - that's the most important thing. Most flexibles print under 240c - so no issue with hotend.

    auto levelling on an I3 is kind of not that much use.
    You have to do the manual bed levelling. All the 'auto level' does is map irregularities in the bed's surface.
    And it's much simpler to just...
