    Synology launched 4 bay home NAS, DS420j

    could be they use cheaper parts, butARM is fine for their duties as backups in raid 1; hence why i never used an intel-based model.

    Synology launched 4 bay home NAS, DS420j

    had 2 2-disks version die recently; one was the power brick giving up the ghost and killing mb + hdds, second mb died while corrupting data on both hdds (both units were used for data backup, in raid 1). moreover, their mobile app is terrible for external access (both android and ios)...

    3D Printer Essentials? (Or maybe better named as "Adventures in Newb 3D Printing" )

    i always: manually level bed while hot, never cold zero Z, then manually move X and Y with motors disabled to level the bed print with a 3 wide skirt/brim, so as to adjust bed level live. 0.5mm from piece, helps with corner adhesion too wait for the bed to fully cool off, before removing the...

    if the edges curl up, slow print speed down and check cooling fan speed - too high. do calibrate the extruder, and keep the hotend connected.

    Yes, called a fang. printed to suit a Noctua head fan and an axial 5015 fan. seen on left is the bed leveling IR sensor while on the right is a provision for an inductive sensor.

    it is more of a matter of learning what had to be done on our machines... i do not know the Ender series, and what Creality learned from their user base which they may have introduce as upgrades on their latest printers. i for one would not buy my cr-10s if i knew what i was about to spend on...

    Being only the beginning, did the same mods on mine... converting Y axis to linear rails presently. Another worthy mod was the bed heater to a 120v (750W) model, controlled by a SSR.

    calibrate the extruder, level the bed and X gantry. then adjust settings for speed, flow and retraction speed for perfect layers (under/over extrusion). last make a temp tower to adjust layer fan speed and evaluate bridging capabilities (makes for a need of minimal supports). then make your...
