    VooDoo isn't a silk it's a glitter filled. Silk likes a little more heat to flow better.

    Yes it's not silk, but it took 2 small prints to get it right in cura.

    Just doing an 8 hour print using silk.

    Nice. I normally just put spools in either zip lock bags or now some reusable vacuum bags. But I want to try some different materials this years so looking for something I can print from too.

    Waste of money when you can use sweet tubs, like celebrations and heroes

    I wouldnt say that, in mine I mainly have abs, tpu and petg which are all highly hygroscopic, keeping them in a celebrations tin wouldnt be air tight so the dessicant wouldnt be able to keep the humidty low enough to stop it absorbing too much water, currently my abs has a humidty of 18% and tpu of 22%

    There is enough room to still put them in a sealed bag with dessicant in them, which is what I do

    Mine will be internal to the printer with a second LCD exposed with a mobile friendly version of Octoprint local and all still available via ssh/browser. It's just adding a local interface to the printer as well.

    gonna be adding BTT TFT35 E3 to the front of my printer If firmware may allow i might be able to access the pi via that touch screen as BTT who own BIQU have done that with the BIQU BX.

    Will soon be welcoming printer No 12 to the family :). I'm a bit of a collector of old vintage printers, so on the way is a Makerbot thing-o-matic with automatic build plate.
