I've been meaning to set up something like this:


Of course it's on the big list of things I'll eventually get around to.

I've had good luck with hatchbox.

The only thing I've really had issues with is AmazonBasics, because I think they rotate manufacturers to whoever's cheapest at the moment.
That's what I got first, and ended up with a ton of stringing. I've seen none of that now. I can only assume its related?

PLA stringing is a function of retraction and moisture. Manage those things, and you'll minimize it.

IDK why there's such a difference between brands (other than variations in diameter along the major and minor axes of the cross-section), because theoretically anyway, the material is the material.

@Strings

May I contract out your services?

Me? I'd love to help but I don't design or print. I just buy and paint.
This place on Etsy offers custom printing.
I can't say how good they are as I haven't ordered from them yet.

I'm sure there are others with a better reputation than 33 sales but it's a start.

If you did mean me our printer isn’t even set up at the moment (no real good place in the new house) and just in case it’s for dildos I can say my husband def wouldn’t be game. Mini figures sure, but I don’t know of a timeline.
There isn't enough resin for that.

Just a couple D&D minis to print. Nothing too big.

So 10 hours into this print, it slipped. I had just cleaned the sheet with ISO before this started. What can I do to prevent this?

print it with a brim instead of a skirt, as a start. If it's PLA, adjust your Z offset a little lower, a little more squish helps PLA stick better.

Finally found some nice prints of impaled skeletons.
I mean, how uncommon could such a thing be?
