    Default Heavily used ender3 pros?

    My printers (6) ender 3 pros are about a year old and very heavily used lol
    I started having issues about 2 weeks ago with build up on the nozzle and no matter what I did it was always on one side or the other which resulted in poor flat large surface prints .
    Upon inspection I found over the many times Iíve changed nozzles the heater block that the nozzle seats into the 2 screws that go vertical to were slightly bent not real noticeable. I had a spare hot end assembly original not upgrade, so I changed it out and omg its like a brand new machine again . My point is if you change nozzles the chance. Of getting it out of alignment is very possible and easy to do as I use a backup wrench when changing nozzle and easy to do , it can cause you headaches. 17 bucks has renewed my machine again.
    Just. Wanted to share maybe save someone else the headache.

    How do you justify the need for SIX 3D printers?

    William, have you noticed any wear on the rollers? I keep seeing a light dust on the 2020 rails where the rollers spend the most time near the center. It makes me wonder if they’ll eventually wear and then wobble.
