So I picked up a new 3D Printer - this time went for something a bit more 'Pro' then the previous ones I've had. Also decided to pick up a kit version as it was cheaper by a fair bit, as well as getting to know it inside out by building it myself....

nice one.
I have anycubic i3 mega and it has been really useful plenty of times. I love finding custom usecases around the house. But lately it keeps failing prints so i should get familiar with the internals to be able to find the root cause.
