The first test part is printing now. The first attempt was OK, but still needs some work. The bottom layer was garbage and there were a few quality issues in the print and it failed part way through because it stopped extruding. Luckily, it wasn’t the extruder’s fault this time. I wasn’t paying attention and the filament got wrapped around a bolt head. Printing another now after re positioning the filament. I will make changes based on how this one turns out.

Also, it appears that my machine is no longer secured to the table. Someone borrowed the claps I was using and I totally forgot about it until now. I can’t screw it down to the table it is currently on, but something is in the works for another work space next year. And when I am home I will screw it to its own surface.
