If you heard a fell voice on the wind it was probably me explaining (very loudly, with added expletives) why I sometimes hate 3D Printing, I was swearing whilst trying to remove filament from both fans and from the heat block too.
Luckily I checked at the two hour mark rather than the six hour mark.
So if you remember, last night I said I was going for a raft to help secure the print, well one of the armour plates failed and in doing so caused an awful lot of spaghetti. This in turn either went upwards and melted on the heat block or went out and up/down to get itself twisted into both of the fans.
This what what I came in to see…
You can really tell which one failed…
To be honest, I am not going to waste any more time or filament on this*. This was really just so that I could wear it at a Games day while hosting a game, if I were to be truthful I was already getting a little uncomfortable about potential cultural appropriation. I have set the printer away on some more plains from the Hexon Hills Kickstarter and they are three hours in and absolutely fine.
*wasting time and filament may be reinstated when I get bored, interested or forget what an absolute b*stard this was to print 😉.
