Thank you bobstro!

I just want to show my appreciation to @bobstro for this page: .

I went through at least a half dozen failed attempts at printing the hardware for a face shield over the last few weeks. I even rebuilt my extruder in the process; hoping that would help.  Immediately failed the next attempt (print came loose).  Finally, I found the bobstro page while searching for ideas.

That page has the best descriptions I've seen of what the different slicer parameters do and why you might tweak them.  I didn't copy everything over since my setup is different, but it made it possible to figure out which ones would probably help my situation.  My next attempt completed with no issues.  Thank you bobstro!

RE: Thank you bobstro!

I'm very glad to hear that the notes were useful. Those notes were written during some dark days, and my Mk3 was a true workhorse throughout. Focusing on my own production and working with others to maximize output with their Prusas was very rewarding, if not sanity-saving. I need to thank all the folks here who have patiently worked with me to expand my understanding of these complicated machines in turn, with a special shout-out to @guy-k2 for not only sharing 3D printing knowledge, but working the front lines.

If you or anybody you know are still facing challenges with printing PPE on a Prusa (or any other 3D printer for that matter), please don't hesitate to reach out. I'm happy to work with you on a Zoom call as needed to keep things going.
