    I really shouldve taken its temperature before when it was printing well the first few times. Then it became more and more inconsistant. The hottest part i can find is just below the circular heatsink at around 107 degrees sometimes but under that and the tip is only around 40degress. Its so strange. Dont know why or is it measuring the old air from the fan? To bad i cant try it now as im on holidays. Hope someone can work it out. I havent been able to finish a print for a while without it going all fuzzy and stringy.

    I am concerned that the bed on the printer is not completely straight... I used the same tool to measure in the corners to the bare aluminum and at the corners it measure perfect, though if you center the axis between the two corners, the nozzle is closer to the bed... They only way this could be is if the bed is not straight... For me, this definitely seems to explain why I can print small objects in one place, though with numerous attempts at leveling the bed, larger prints fail... So far this hasn't printed anything over 30mm x 30mm with any success...

    I was concerned too, but it was the opposite, the nozzle was closer on the corners and there was more space in the center.

    I bought a 5mm glass that i have fixed with clip.

    just a few things I've printed since coming back from holidays.
    it's worked really well after cleaning out the hotend and it's been really reliable ever since.

    made my own filament spool roller with old hard disk ball bearings and it's silky smooth.

    gameframe grids which would not be possible without a 3d printer.

    these were all printed at 0.2 layers only and haven't even tried higher res yet but it's already quite good enough.
    Also found using 60 degrees on the bed makes PLA stick like glue! at 50degrees I had lifting on the edges even on small parts but at 60, it's completely flat and has never lifted even on the spool roller.
    so it's been quite great to be able to print out stuff I want that are useful to me and fun for the kids.

    I haven't had to adjust the machine for a few days and it's been printing really reliably and consistently and it's still printing now as I type. So very happy ... definitely a solid machine after some initial 'learning' stage and replacing some of those silly grub screws.


    Does anyone know of a shutdown procedure? I've only been turning it off after it's finished a print.
