E3printable please check last setup about cooling angle... I'm not sure that is too high right now and air flow is a lttile bit higher than surface... but it could be subjective feeling.

Nifty mod you have there with the cooling of the stepper. Did you connect it to the 12V outlets on the board in the back?

I have tested this with some small details in PLA with lid on, and it works :)

I'm working now with PETG and this material always give weird surfaces... you have a bad feeling that is overheated all time ;)

I was made the double check. Is better on old setup with PETG. No surface bulbs. With 2 degrees more air flow is above of surface of the material. In some situation will be good enough with some not. I was print again the same components with old spacers. And the surface is better. One millimeter and we have big difference ;)

Ok after 3rd attempts I'm not sure. This is 3D printing too many parameters to check. Maybe is ok. I need a long time to test it.

I'll give PET-G a try after I finish this batch of 10 fanducts in ABS that is currently printing. PET-G not my friend eighter...

Ok research done. Black filament was wet... so everything works perfect.

Sweet! Then I trust you on that, and can start really enjoying my printer 100% :)
The print quality is second to none if you ask me, and I have tested A LOT of printers... Now that it can take big and small projects in all materials with stride, I'm a happy camper here :)

In my opinion, the machine needs some hardware improvements like full detachable printer head like Ultimaker. Just fast modules. And some software polishing. And it could be a nice champion in that price range, isn't it?

Well, my opinion on that is that I love the fact that I can change the nozzle a lot cheaper than changing the whole hotend aka BCN/UM. I like the simplicity of that. And yes, software needs some polishing. Like the ability to monitor the printer via app/website.

Printing head construction isn't modular. This way. Each move means calibration. Is ok for me with mechanics skills but for others, I don't think so. So if you are not clever you will waste a lot of time ;)

Hello, can I see a link to the engine cooling model?
