Hi David,

Have you done a digital diagram for your layout?

Re: 3D printers

I'd highly recommend the Cura profiles provided by CHEP. Use the latest version available for your printer. Have a look for him on Youtube. He also has a very good guide into 'levelling' the bed (it's a process known as tramming, and doesn't have anything to do with a spirit level!). Lots of people ...
