Don’t feel too bad. I have a Da Vinci XYZ Pro enclosed printer and it struggles to lay down ABS without curling. I know 100% of my issues are due to temp conditions in which I am printing (keep the house at 71, geothermal system with fan pushing air all the time). I need to wait for spring/summer temps here in Illinois before I give it another go. I had decent luck printing when I threw a comforter over top the entire enclosure while printing. The wife told me I had to move my ‘toys’ to the basement and out of our living space as she was tired of plastic bits all over the wood floor and stepper motor noises coming from all corners of the house (had 4, 3D printers running at once at one point in time). So now I have them all tucked away waiting for decent temps before printing again…
