But no one likes a smart ass..


So i am guess you a referring to the Go Crazy usage aka the "Hard as a MF". Guess I would need a all metal hotend.

Bam, hows the all metal hotend coming along? Do you need any beta testers?
Apologies -- moment of weakness.

ABS with a %80 infill density will be relatively strong. I recommend the x-idler slice http://devel.lulzbot.com/TAZ/Guava/prod ... .50noz.ini
but printing in polycarbonate will be stronger. Most polycarbonates have a high coefficient of thermal expansion which means they will have a tendency to warp. Printing with the bed at 105c will help with this. Printing with a 4mm brim will help, too.

Happy printing,

Kent
