    I have ordered the X5SA, I had to do it fast because it's a chrismas gift for my son...at least that's what he thinks .

    I saw that Nexi Tech printed a benchy at 50 microns layer height https://youtu.be/Pq3qjdaRnuY?t=660

    Thx again Curious Aardvark, for your time and thoughts. I will try to share my build project on this forum and may have some more questions.

    did you notice that the 0.05mm benchy had more issues than the 0.1 and 0.2 ?
    Visible stringing on the roof that wasn't there with the others.

    Nice looking machine though :-)

    Haven't really tried it yet, I'm missing a piece of the extruder. Although I did modify the extruder to work temporarily, there is always filament bleeding through the nozzle...eventhough none is being fed. I haven't had much time. I'm still trying to figure out why the filament is leaking, there must be pressure in the tube. I'm letting it heat now to see how much filament will bleed before it stops.

    Thx

    when you heat up filament it expands.
    So, when heating up the extruder you will almost always get some filament coming out.
    All you do is wait till the printer starts to print and remove it.

    Now my problem is(I think) that my nozzle is too high(pictures above) . I'm having trouble setting the hight of the autoleveling probe relative to the nozzle. My first tries adjusting the probe made my hotend dig into my printing surface. When I lower the probe it becomes lower than my hotend, it then sweeps up whatever I'm printing.

    I have dumb question, with what do you remove it? I used a small screwdriver and smeared the PLA all over the hotend...
