I have one here. It's the usual fair of cheap chip covered in a big blob of bleh.

But that's ok. I have a 3D printer and some spare displays meant for car reversing systems. So, I'm throwing away the case and putting it inside a 3D printe<snip>

Sod all here apart from the odd flurry that didn't do anything other than float around aimlessly. We've pretty much had wall to wall sunshine and blue skies.

You'll get to learn that there's lots of settings you can fiddle with to improve the quality of the prints.

As I mentioned previously, I'd also highly recommend you do this dead easy mod:

Ok, back to the glass. You really shouldn't need it - yet!

If you want to use the glass then you need to expose the metal base and put the glass directly onto that.

I think it's probably best to work out why the extruder isn't touching t<snip>

You need to make sure you tighten the hex-nuts inside those height changing screw thingumies. Then they can't move.

What makes you think it's not brand new?

It's unlikely a clog (unless it's not coming out at all now).

These extruders will always let filament ooze out - it's normal. The problem is that there's then a "string" of fila<snip>

Sorry, meant to check how you were getting on today but work got in the way.

Sticking a glass base on top of the black cover isn't ideal. The glass is borosilicate so it conducts heat pretty well, but if it's not in direct contact with the me<snip>

Another thing you should check is that the Z height is level on both sides. The following should help with Z-height and bed leveling:

You shouldn't need the glass bed yet - the printer should level with what you have out of the box. In fact, I'd recommend you ignore the glass for now as you'll need to peel off the black bed cover before you use the glass.

Nice one - really good printers.

The printers normally come with a tiny amount of filament, but it's enough to do a few test prints. Almost certainly your first prints are going to be problematic - just like everybody when they start

The running costs are pretty low actually. We don't barely notice anything on the smart meter. The cost of a 1kg real of PLA varies on quality, but you're looking around 18 quid for 1kg - which lasts AGES. That death star probably cost me a coup<snip>
