    What a fantastic thread! Love your work. I keep seeing people refer to Ender 3s, they are very popular.

    3D printing is cool, I just hate the layer lines seen on so many prints.

    It's amazing how big some of these prints are;

    Ender 3 is great value and works well, hence popular. Other options too. What do you mean layer lines? Depending on material and settings prints can be extremely smooth.

    If they can be smoother, it's not clear because so many have a rough finish in photos across the internet. I know some of you can achieve it, but I'd say you are a minority.

    Can we still post pics in this one if we'd rather also have the option of discussing or asking questions?
    Or is this thread gonna be locked?

    Testing big layer heights at relatively high speed. I have a massive print for something functional and didn't fancy 30 hours print time:

    0.54mm layer height at 45mm/s using a 0.8mm nozzle and 230 degrees.

    A phone holder for my SN30 Pro+.

    Much better than the 8bitdo one as it centres the phone weight over the controller rather than being back heavy and giving you additional wrist strain.

    I've been having NuhGrrrrrrrrrrrr moments with my Chiron


    After trying repositioning all over the bed and using Pritt Stick etc.... The sodding bed had magically gone out of level !
    Re-levelled and now all is well again.

    What am I printing ?
    A 20s-7P battery case for my ebike. This is just the lid as the case is quite involved and I didn't want to print for about 3 days and discover something is wrong !
    That'll probably happen anyway lol !!
    This is the design I created in FreeCAD. The side "Wings" are for the large 300 amp BMS. It was the only place that can accomodate it


    Some previous prints are in order I guess..

    Printed 4 of these (large) vases in different colours so far..

    & 3 of these
