CR-10S

So, I bought a CR-10S.  From banggood.   Why, oh why?  Because I have a neighbor who is interested in printing 3D Planes, like those from 3dLabPrint.com.  He’s not all that interested in 3D printing.

I wanted to see if a CR-10S could print these unique thin wall prints, and print them reasonably well with little hassle by the operator.

Short answer: Yes.

Longer answer:  I did not completely realize this was a bowden printer.  The files supplied by 3dLabPrint require some tweaking in retraction. Also, the printer DESPERATELY needs some quieting down.   Just a couple of better fans, and a couple of stepper-motor-dampers do a world of good.  Maybe $20 in parts, maybe less.

With those caveats, it produces medium good to very good prints.
