I get asked about the infill a lot. I did test the parts and those percentages is the minimum that worked well for me. I don’t sell filament so I have no interest in making my parts take more filament and I would love for it to be quicker to print. I didn’t just make the numbers up. It will most definitely work at 5% infill, work well, no. That being said if you only plan on carving foam or just 3D printing, sure bump those values down.

There are plenty of people that can chime in here. Lots of different materials, infills, ect.

Instead of wood you can always print the parts and do a resin fill. There are a few ways to make the parts stronger if you need them to be.

It is a fun machine when it is done and hopefully opens a lot of creative doors for you in, as far as I know, the least expensive way possible.
