These the toothed ones you were talking about? Pics?
I was using teethed ones for about a month. But the ones I had were hot garbage and I knew it. So I had ordered HQ ones immediately.

interesting, people have mostly concluded they don't matter in vorons (vs bearing stacks), mine has toothed idlers though :o
Absolutely noticed a difference on my other printer. But they were still garbage idlers so it only just reduced it. I have genuine Gates idlers going in when it gets rebuilt, after I finish my PC.

And the artifacts that had a 2mm pitch on my Prusa before now are completely gone.

Dual-gear extruders cause surface artifacts as well but people still are pushing them for some damn reason.

Yeah I wonder what the next hotness in extruders will be to avoid this issue, it does seem a bit odd that everyone is ignoring it, but those bondtech gearsets are sooooo cheap

Didn't E3D just come out with a large diameter extruder gear? So instead of the two small sorta meshing gears and their problems we've gone back to one but larger diameter bigger contact patch to make up for the one sided grip.

I think someone did, but not e3d
Don't believe so. But Prusa is ditching it for all upcoming printers.
didn't prusa go first party for their hot end/extruders?

I set up some GCODE to do a temp tower a couple weeks ago and have been printing a bunch since then. I didn't realize until now that Cura had carried over the gcode for the temps. All this time the last couple weeks all my items have been printed with different temps. LOL

tinkercad sucks for something i'm trying to help a youth pastor out with. They have 300 chairs with these offering racks in the seat back, and the envelopes and papers are so tall when slid in the rack that they fall backwards. People sliding behind the chairs bump into the papers and they fall out onto the floor. I'm looking for a solution that will hold the envelopes up or a free piece of software I can use to mock something up.
