Its a little over extruded but, yeah, still looks good lol

I little extra on the first layer isn't the worse thing that's for sure

You print on glass or glue stick on the bed adhesive? I got some good first layers on the bed adhesive, but once I had glass dialed down and was using hairspray, dear lord was the first layer basically a mirror.

PEI sheet stuck to creality glass. I had the creality glass for a bit til I took a chunk out of it with just PLA which was surprising.

I don't use anything on it. Just clean it with ISO after every print. I mainly do PLA, PETG and TPU.

.....juuuust kiddin.
Got the wiring pass through system finalized on the gantry.
I also knocked it out of the park on the Belt tensioning set up for the y axis belt. Twangs like a gitar.

Don't mind the clamp plate that's Askew I goofed on the relief to clear the linear bearing housing.

By next weekend we should actually be able to melt plastic!

Backside view. Really hard to fit it into the frame....

I'd imagine an enclosure for a belt printer to print hot enough for polycarbonate would be really annoying.... I don't even think the bed stuff would handle the heat

Haven't you seen the header for the WaGN thread? I don't think I've ever seen so many dick a soreasses in one place.
I don’t believe anything has been printed on this mega fast machine.

about to give TPU a try on this BIQU H2. so far it handled PLA and PETG without a hiccup. especially after I printed a better mount setup.

The next thing I am going to do is clean the Z rod, add silicone rubber instead of springs, and add spring loaded anti-backlash nuts for the Z rod. I have some Z issues that hopefully resolve it.

Ghetto humidity control container for TPU 85a 8 hour print 😁

This stuff is cool. Little bit softer then 95a. Gonna try some coasters too.

Octopus came out good. And this is at 40MM/s and PLA retraction settings. Definitely recommend the BIQU H2 hotend at this point.
