    which a8 do you have ?
    The new plus or the old acrylic/plywood one ?

    Also why are you starting with pet-g ?
    Not the easiest of materials to get clean prints with at the best of times.

    have a look at the New Prusa Mini.
    Probably the most plug and play machine around - also sensible price at around $400

    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...

    it IS an Ender 3.
    It is EXACTLY what was stated :-)

    Ender 3 us JUST a particular design of I3. LOTS of different companies make them.

    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.

    depends where you put the entry point.
    If you slot the ball in sideways, rather than from the bottom, then the vertical pull is as strong as the plastic.
    I would also use flexible pla - It's...

    yeah, sensible, reasoned argument is one thing. But just pure plain insults with no evidence to back anything up - that's another.
    Life is too short to tolerate those kind of people.

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

    I thought the mumu just fed the extruder on the printer - didn't realise it had to move around...

    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.
    I have no idea why, it's a terrible design.

    So what you have...

    oh yeah that's pretty normal.

    Thought you meant an i3 style bed using using the screws to go back and forth - that would have been a bit weird :-)

    yep easy to do, don't see any problems. All sorts of lego compatible parts have been 3d printed.

    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.
    But yep - definitely a...
