The mail lady delivered a huge parcel from Switzerland and a little parcel from Amazon.ca ....... 1kg of gray PETG filament. Tbe "helper" is already at it, so far looking good except the supports. But I let it roll, for all I know PETG will be able to bridge even across crummy supports. :-? :-? What's printing? the plow for the 212.
BTW this stuff is really stringy this gives me hope for the bridging part.

The stringy supports are far from what I would like, but what counts is fine.

Next one is printing now I'll pay a bit of attention to find out what happens.

On that Capricorn, I'll try one using PETG material, probably going to be even fuzzier than the one in PLA.
PLA would probably work in the milder climes, but with our heat it will probably distort.

SWMBO sister was staying for three weeks, one of which they doodled off to Sun Peaks for some more interesting downhill skiing.
Meantime I was printing the cooler hinges in three different materials, PLA, Nylon and TPU. Two sets of each, that should do for a while.

The printer has been running for three weeks without any adjustments to the leveling. Using two glass plates to print on means when the print is done it's switch the plates and don't let the bed or the nozzle cool down ... and on to the next job.
The finished print goes in the freezer for rapid cooling and the job pops off.

Finally got some correct lower and upper body parts of the Track Scale, just a few minor parts to print and add.
