MK4 Display backside in PA6-CF. This is Markforged print quality. 😉

Those are some beautiful parts but unless you compare it to CF filament on an Mk4 it isn't really a fair comparison. CF filaments do hide artifacts... a lot. Also their surface finish is pretty nice. That said, I would not doubt a second that the Bambulab prints better looking parts than an Mk3. The question is, how it compares to an Mk4. Opinion seem to differ and I can contribute to that as I don't own an MK4 nor a X1.

Mk3s MMU2s, Voron 0.1, Voron 2.4

Yeah sure, maybe someone can post some PA-CF parts of prints from an MK4 to compare.

Here‘s an ABS print, so no artifacts hiding from CF. It’s just crazy good.

RE: Prusa MK4 vs Bambu?

All of your parts looking great, really. But PA-CF seems to be expensive.

Do I have to ventilate regarding fumes?

RE:

Always better to ventilate.

X1C comes with a filter though and additionally I use a Bento Box which is highly effective since it filters and circulates air inside the chamber using coal and hepa filter.

Even PLA emits VOCs (not as bad as ABS though):

I have three printers and rarely vent them.  I have Hepa filters in the printer box.

If you are worried about VOCs, then a HEPA filter is not enough.  You need an activated carbon air filters.  I have read that activated alumina will also remove vocs but I need to do more research on that one.  HEPA will remove the micro particles from the 3D printing.

RE:

Yes. Bambu X1c has an activated carbon filter and the Bento Box has a Hepa filter and an activated carbon filter.

So I am using 2 activated carbon filters and one Hepa filter.

I can print ABS now and my VOC meter does not show elevated levels and no smell. When printing open with MK3s+ it shows elevated levels immediately even with PLA.

Actually there are no projects to switch from PLA to any other filament....

Does anyone knows how to beep the MK4 loading / unloading filament?
