what about the sources, to be able to remix for other diameters than 0.48 ?

which diameters you looking for?

0.4 would be cool for me.
After that, are we really testing the printer, or the slicer :-) ?

you can download the 0.4mm file now.
this will test both printer & slicer.

thanks, I will test that


Thanks for taking the time to make this handy printer test!
