I got nothin, then. Ghosts. Power surge. You didn't hold your mouth right.
Yeah, I have about 1% knowledge of this stuff, but the only thing I can think of is some obscure firmware bug. No idea. The whole thing, with everything exactly the same, is printing just fine right now.

I did file a support ticket, so we'll see what they say.

I've ordered resin minis on Etsy. Nothing custom but it's worth a look. A lot of the shops offer resin prints.

Thing keeps underextruding in one section. I don't get why. It usually recovers as it goes higher up.

Here its not an issue as the support is the part that's getting fucked, but every now and then it will biff the actual thing I'm printing.

How is the angle on the bowden tube when it goes out that far? If it's really cranked over, I might put a longer one on.

If you're doing autoleveling with the BLtouch, what's your fade height?

If the printer thinks the front of the bed is 1mm down, and your fade height is 10mm (say), then you'll get 90% extrusion for the first 10mm while it fades.

Not sure. I'll have to look into it.

That being said, thing is half its height (at 3-4" right now) and its still doing it
