    Either your best R2 prints or your biggest print disasters.

    I'll start with this print. There are a couple of things. Printed in PLA just a bit fast (70mm/s), but still looks pretty good. Using cheap PLA from Amazon $8 / kg before XMAS, used 0.60 mm nozzle and 0.15 mm layers. Made a mistake on my support settings so the middle is solid and the support cannot be removed. I am going to reprint this after installing TL-Smoother boards.

    It is this model: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:367130

    my favorite has been this dizingof piece. No supports so overhangs got ugly in a few spots. .25 layer (i think maybe 3 ?) Hatchbox black pla from @Printed Solid 60mm/s

    Printed today, PETG sprayed with matte clear coat. Since this was single perimeter, the model cooled at different rates on the faces. Resulted in interesting warps on the faces.

    Find this model on Thingiverse, XBOX controller stand. Printed in the cheapest natural PLA I could find on Amazon. So far the R2 has handled every cheap filament I have thrown at it, except one spool of eSun translucent blue PETG. Model located here, https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1978236

    Too large maybe? I default to making mine 1024x768 to make sure they fit. The forum software is rather restrictive and too big it will kick them.

    Good to know image size but on the bottom of this box is "post reply" "upload a file" and "more options" The first and last work for me but clicking on the "upload file" nothing comes up to even select a image.

    If it is not working then ... try another browser. It is working generally speaking:

    Working on this model, https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2897264

    So far it is just the bottom sections. Printed with cheap as dirt Sunlu Wood/PLA Filament (from Amazon). No real wood smell when printing. it is very matte in appearance and it does sand pretty easily. The plan on finishing is to use a thin coat of wood putty to fill in all the ridges and holes, then smooth it almost all away. I am not sure how much 'wood' is actually in this filament, but it was only a dollar or two more than the cheapest PLA only filament, when I bought it.

    This is the base unfilled and unsanded. I am printing a hair too fast but since I am filling in the defects I am not concerned. I am still debating what filament to use on the horn.
