    Bottom was 21hrs and top was 18 hrs. Cracks in the bottom were low temp. Fixed it on the top.

    Here is a pic I have my acceleration down all the way to 500 and my jerk at 10 everything even pinion gears is tight

    The makergeek abs I use works well for me around 245 but might need to go higher if it's a large print

    @Spidematt It looks like your profile over-extrudes a very minor amount.

    Ripples in the X or Y axis is usually the result of backlash or barely sufficient stepper power to hold the motor exactly in the right place, considering you have already done the other two variables you mentioned of slowing down and editing Jerk numbers. But don't go willy-nilly adjusting pots on the driver boards measure first, record all values then adjust them to be the same. Also not that increasing the voltage measured will result in an increase in Stepper motor heat while running. Thomas Sanladerer has a good YouTube channel everyone should subscribe to. He has a lot of generalized videos on stuff like this.

    Has anyone compared this Raptor PLA to PETG?

    I really like using PETG and has been very strong, etc. But, just curious as to how it compares.

    I've been half-enticed to arrange some from them to experiment with, particularly the Raptor PLA, however just hadn;t felt open to pulling the trigger. I'll give them a shot one week from now for a few PLA I require.
