So Iv has my A8 for a while and the one thing that’s driving me mental is supports. I really want to print disovable supports. Which means dual extenders. Now my A8 simply can’t do that without a new mainboard and a dual extruder...

I would also like something that can print a bit quicker if I’m honest.

So the question becomes do I get a new board extruder and bodge away or order a better printer?

If so where n what to buy? My A8 came from banggood but when it comes to parts and stuff I’m utterly clueless.

So over to you printing experts bring on the advise and suppliers you favour for your printer builds!


Buy  new one you know you want to  :rolleyes: have you considered getting a delta type printer they tend to be quicker but a bit more complex to setup
