for a glue stick? Hot water. Ideally you shouldn't need a glue stick if you use the right surface for the right material choice.
yep, I just scrubbed it off with a rag and hot water and it came off super easy. I only used it because it was suggested in the tutorial I watched but I'm gonna stop doing it. Seemed like a hassle with no real benefit

I just noticed in my prusa setup that it says something about the filament not being compatible with installed printers. I added the right printer but my filament list is way shorter. Is this an issue? This is the filament I'm using:o

fwiw silk PLA is more finnicky than regular PLA because of whatever they add to make the silk effect

also all the filaments do in prusa slicer is tune temps/fan times, the generic one should be good enough for now as long as it's within the range on that label

As many heatserts as I've used by now I still get real nervous that I'm gonna burn the fuck out of myself with them :o

I gotta figure out how tf to use prusa. I'm pretty sure I'm doing it wrong and that's fucking up my prints.

what settings have you changed?
Nothing, AFAIK, but stuff I slice with the creality slicer print better than what I've tried with Prusa. There are way more options and paramters to pick from in Prusa and I have 0 clue how to do basically anything in it. Granted idk how to do anything in the Creality one outside of uploading a model that I find on thingiverse and hitting slice and copying to the sd card.

I've noticed that the nozzle and bed temp change for some models on the ones I tried with Prusa. IDK if that's normal.

try with Cura till you get things working consistent then fuck with Prusaslicer
plenty of people use cura still, even if it's not "idea"

Wut?

And have you found actually needing more processing power than the older one?

When I was using the 8266 yes... well at least functions and calls that "should" work didn't. When I switched to just a regular ESP32 they worked properly. :dunno:

I have a full set of their version of their bob-bitchen channel lock pliers and while I liked the flat jaw ones I couldn't figure out a unique use case that my old crescent wrenches couldn't do just as well. I stand corrected. That's actually really useful.

the patent expired so you can also get cheaper ones now, my bigass ones are from Napa and were like $19 on sale, there's all sorts of weird not turning nuts and bolts uses for them

I think I regret getting the silk filaments. I switched to a plain blue spool and it prints sooooo much better. IDK what adjustments I should even try with the silk kind I got.

Can you kinda use the same settings on different spools of the same brand/type of filament or do I have to fiddle with every spool I put on?

For print quality that would pass 80+% of peoples standards you can generally just use whatever PLA profile, Silk, matte, and white (I think) filaments sometimes just take some tuning with temperatures.

Usually more or less the same range for a given “type” (PLA, PETG, ABS, ASA, etc); different filaments/vendors might need slight adjustments depending on the quality you’re going for

I print a swatch with every new filament I try and save it as a reference for color and temperature
