                  • They are great, especially when they run how they should. They do require experimentation to get things to come out nice, but once done man it sure is fun!

                        • Hey Y'all, First shot at a more scale-like spinner. I added a half a millimeter to account for some shrinkage but I did not get that evidently. I will go with exact measurements for the second attempt. Also, does anyone know how I can increase the number of facets to get a smoother result? I started with a small ellipse and designed from there. Nothin' beats a failure, but a try...so onward. Best, LB

                                    • Just did the nose gear for my sons plane, as a test for the 3dprintlab files. Should be good to go now.

                                        Its doing the test print that came with it right now.

                                        A couple of failed starts, dragging the filament rather than it sticking from bed being too far from the print head, but this time its sticking well.

                                        • FHH, I found that until I printed 8-10 prints the bed was just 'too new' for the parts to stick well. I used the glue that came with my Prusa, but until I scuffed up the heat bed and wiped it with acetone I could not get good prints. I wipe the bed before a print every time now and don't need the glue at all. Your issue with the heat bed will get better as you break it in. Post pics. Best, LB
