dryer was cheap ($50) and it looked to me like it might help with keeping the filament on the spool as a bonus. other stuff was under $30 so nothing major

i have had the printer for a little bit had a chance to print some simple stuff and something a little difficult. my takeaway is getting the first layer right first is where you need to sort the temperature for the bed and hot end out first, for me the range of temp on the filament was between 190 and 230C for the PLA i'm starting with. i ended up at 220C and have had zero issues there. the bed temperature i still have set at 60C since i have had no issues on that end.

the one thing that gave me a little bit of trouble was bridging longer gaps but was able to get around it simply by changing the orientation of the part on the bed. So all and all i have had little trouble with this machine. i leveled the bed with a piece of paper after putting it together and have not touched it since.

neat little machines i should have got one a long time ago :)
