Anyone else have a friend who you tried to dissuade from buying a 3D printer because you knew they would not do their own fucking research and just ask stupid question after stupid fucking question?

Sigh
I had a hobby delta printer made from plywood and fishing string. Built it in like 2015. Quickly outgrew it and was throwing it out when my wife asked me to give it to her mom (who has trouble using an iphone.) I yeeted that thing in the trashcan like it was on fire.

Is there a general consensus about Bambu printer reliability?
Recently saw video of a lightning fast print by one, though I don't care about alternating colors mid print.

Looks like another Kickstarter printer.

Looks like another recent crowdsourced printer.
they haven't really been out in the wild long enough for a solid general consensus

Everyone I know with a 'fast' 3d printer is constantly fucking around with it trying to fix stuff. I'm super anxious for some ot'ers to get these machines and give us some honest opinions.

ah shit, that sucks.. what printer?
Creality Ender 3 Neo V2. I was doing everything the guy said in the video but I feel like I missed something.

This is the video I watched. Everything was fine until started getting into the actual offsets and leveling process which is around 24:25



I did the auto-level but I feel like I fucked up somewhere on the manually adjusting section.

flip side, if you enjoy hotrodding a printer you probably value uptime a lot less, or are willing to compromise on it :dunno:

Well, it's here...I've got everything put together but I think I fucked up the calibration somehow by trying to follow a youtube guide.
Apologies if this picture is fucking huge, IDK how to change it:o

This is my bed, looks like the nozzle was too close and just dragged across it. I hope it didn't permanently fuck up something.

definitely nothing permanent, it's basically a write of passage to draw on your PEI like that

did you stop your print because it was dragging or did the rest of it work fine?

I stopped the print early since it was just a block and I could get the general idea of how it was printing. I noticed it had a little trail from cancelling in the middle, is this normal?

The edges seem bumpy/notchy, I don't know a good word to describe it. This is my first time printing so I have zero expectations, I just wanna know if I'm doing it correctly:o
