    Big box of parts arrived. A few items "bruised". Sorting and counting done and assembly has started. If none of the bruised parts hold me back it will be running soonish...

    Printer is up and running. Printed some PLA cubes, cows and dial indicator brackets.
    Figured out that without a fan PLA is no bueno. So need to print and figure out a fan.
    Adjusting the steps per mm using a dial gage, and then need to dial in the extruder. Dial gage is not a popular for setup, but I think it's the right way to go.
    Dealing with some under voltage on y axis, but it is working.
    Once I dial it in and learn how to print right I will work on some other upgrades.

    A lot of fun, but man it's a steep learning curve.

    It is a brutal learning curve because of all the ways things can go wrong. It is amazing how a whole evening can evaporate working out a problem.

    PLA is often a place to start. I really like PET-G, like T-glase from Taulmann. Great inter-layer adhesion, good platform adhesion and cool look. I get usable parts out of it.

    Wellcome to the affliction!
