Any 3d or just not this 3d ?

Personally I see no attraction to sitting out in the middle of a frozen lake fishing even though some of these shacks are like a little house with everything in it.

Well, let's compare that to my day.
At 8 am yesterday while trying to trim some PLA on the tail of the shark, I slipped with the X-acto
knife and actually drove it about an inch into my thumb managing to send it right through the joint and out the other side. by 5 pm my thumb was about the size of a baseball. So off to the ER. Spent a good 7 hours there hooked up to IV antibiotics. Finally talked them into letting me go home for the night but only with the understanding I would go back this morning for another round of IV, Turns out I contracted a fast-moving infection and now they are worried about a Joint infection so may end up being admitted today. I think I might like ice fishing more than building planes.. Just a thought.
Man! Sorry this happened to you! Hope you recover fast!

Did the blade really go all the way through your thumb?!?!?!

I somehow managed to slide it through the joint where the thumb meets the hand. X-rays shows where I scraped the bone inside the joint. that's why they are so afraid of what's called a ( joint infection). Guess that's worse than just a regular one. the blade is only about an inch long but, oh yeah I buried it right to the handle. And I thought props were dangerous lol.

You could try loading up a file and see what it does.

I believe that is the same Spitfire files I have but mine were the ones right from 3Dlabprint and looking at it their instruction link is to 3Dlabprint and those are the same ones I have. I have all the G-code plus STL files and Cura print settings .
Awesome! I just need to fix my over extrusion, and tighten my belt so I can print now. It should only take me 20 minutes at most
 
Lately been playing with the stainless steel nozzles and a couple days ago tried the titanium too, well both to get layer adhesion you have to print up in the 230 range no matter what. Even on bottom layers I could peel the layers apart when trying to print at 210. Not sure if they just don't give good heat transfer through the nozzle but I put a brass nozzle back on and with the same g code I printed the part at 210 and it came out perfect. Whether it is my type of hot end style or what I would say don't bother trying them.

exact same thing I had when I bought my all-metal hot end with stainless steel nozzle. Only I didn't know to up the temp so I took it off and went back to the original hot end with the brass nozzle.
