    Interesting my next two prints immediately following the first of the same exact object are actually coming out better! I guess the ROBO needs a warm up before the work out? =o)

    Printing a rocket now. Looks like I need to adjust the retraction. I see some stringing and thin long hairs.

    Could just be a bit too hot.
    Test models... love 'em.

    I'm running at 210 ex and 50 bed. The link Mark posted calls for 220. Where do I set 'Deprive' and 'Retraction' in MC? I don't see that at all in here. I was thinking of maybe running 200 C. My speed is 60mm/s. I am also on High Quality 0.1000mm layers.

    Have you looked up the dual fan upgrade? Also I print from 193-210 depending on filament. The robo stuff wasn't very good and I print hatchbox pla around 200 and colorfabb just a bit hotter

    No matter what the stated print temperature is, your temperature for perfect printing will almost always vary. Environment matters :)
    I print PLA at 175-190 normally... each of the printers is a bit different because they each have different hotends.

    Oh LOL, ROBO is what I am using to learn on. That gave me a 3lb roll along with two other 3lb rolls of glow blue and glow green.

    I'm sorry I should have been more clear, the robo "blue starter" that came with my printer wasn't very good. I have no idea how their filament actually is other than the free mini spool that came with.

    Correct, the un-spooled 'sample' blue filament is generally really poor quality.
