    Default 31 hrs to print

    How long has your longest print taken ?

    It looks like time to print is what it boils down to to get good quality parts.
    This is print perfect so far . But with a lot of waste in support .

    Yes small mozzzle and a lot of time will yield excellent results but most of what I print there’s no need for detail so I go fast and big lol

    Longest for me was
    But had to do it in parts to on multiple printers helps speed up process lol

    34 hours for medium sized tree topper. I use this for the trees that are 10' or smaller using 1"EMT. 100% infill. I've printed four so far.
    Had my first failure this year in 50mph gusts when I cheated because I needed one in less than a day. I went with 4 perimeters and 4 top/bottom solid layers with only 50% infill. Lesson learned.

    34 hrs wow ,but a must if you want quality .
    What type filament are you using ?
    I am using PETG but not sure it is needed for simple machine addons .

    I have had 3 failures at this print Fingers crossed on this 1 . lol
    Have learned a few things along the way so far . Most importantly is do not trust what you recieve from Ender-Creality as quality both in product or what they have pre assembled .

    I checked the extruder set screw on my second machine and unlike the first machine , machine # 2 has both set screws installed but 1 was very loose .

    How in the heck did that happen ?
    Spaghetti western .

    I think Octoprint with some plugins can help stop things like that happening .
