Printed out the standard bearing, it's solid no movement, otherwise good detail. The bottom has a little orange due to residue from the last filament.

Overnight the models were looking good, had some trouble with the crate on the high detail but will look into when I come back. Just failing at random spots. I will update when I have more info.

Standard negative space got two pegs. Note that Standard and High detail are printing with different shades, one is "smoky" and one is "ice"

High Detail's robot lost it's hands, but is otherwise very solid.

Had a few prints fail, in different places, different models and different printers. It just starts printing air, might want to look into temperatures. I did cold pulls, all the other standard stuff, but it still fails occasionally.

HTPLA done for both high detail and standard.

Prints look good, a lot of stringing on retraction. We had problems with crate as well, you will notice that there are several failed crates in the bag. I did some testing and I think this was due to the Mini on Ty's desk having a gunked up hobbed bolt. I ended up printing one on another Mini (with the ice color instead of smokey that the rest of the parts are printed out of) and it printed fine. I then went back and printed one on Ty's Mini with smokey and it printed with slight issues, I think that smokey does not print as well as ice.

Did a few other prints comparing this, like four more fine positive features to do a quick retraction test. Smokey just looks worse, Ice looks crisper and the stringing is less obvious then the darker smokey filament.

To be clear, I did clean out the hobbed bolt before when it failed, as part of the standard troubleshooting. If it did it again, I would think its because of grinding, perhaps either from the filament or temperature.

@lansky @TyTh Thank you for the detailed notes, we will get these ones reviewed on Thu!

Updated all profiles retractions speeds to 20mm per sec and 2 mm distance. Dropped the temp to 220.
