Fun! I just got a Raspberry Pi 3 in and I’m about to setup OctoPrint.

You were spotted in the Anycubic Facebook group.

I'm still testing the E3D hot end at the moment. Retraction settings need to be quite different from the ones suggested for the stock head so I'll be printing a retraction torture test soon to see how my initial guess works out.

I've thought about OctoPrint myself, but as I live in a small apartment, it seems a bit overkill for my needs. Taking a microSD card to my kitchen is hardly a long walk!

What a difference a really good hot end makes!

Thanks!

I was expecting to find a stringy mess when I heard that the print was finished, but a couple of very thin hairs is more than acceptable.

For the stock hot end, Anycubic suggest 5mm retraction at 60mm/s and 60mm/s travel speed.
On that print, I'm using 2mm retraction at 30mm/s and 120mm/s travel speed.
