Kissslicer calls it FLOW ADJUST now... they change it so often.. they need to settle on a naming convention or something.

People trying to write books around here.

Confirmed it IS quieter although we noticed some "old galleon" going on so need to check the bearings on our X.

UGGGGH. Everytime I see that excess glass hanging off of the build platform, I cringe. :?

Got to print a pair of these yesterday. They work great for re-tightening your belts, better than a second set of hands.

I wonder if LG's build platform doubles as an Ironing board for little gnome clothes.

I printed a pair of these and they work quite well, at least until I bump into them, they fall off and I go hunting for the step-ramp component on the floor.

I probably should have printed a more visible color (mine are clear).

I had to clean up both edges of the teeth when I made them. The first layers smashing down kind of deforms them so I just ran a sharp edge at 45 degrees to chamfer the edges a bit.

But overall my teeth came out great, never had one come off.

I may revisit this in a few days and change it up a bit. This was just to get something started anyways.

Glad you guys are testing them though, thanks for the feedback. :D
