    You haven't print nothing if you haven't printed at least one fidget spinner :grin

    How's your Prusa going? I see you got some kepton on the bed, I have a lot of scratches now and that leaves some bad bottom finish. I need to order couple of new PEI sheets from Prusa..

    Lol, ya ive done a few dozen or so for my cousin, nice little $$ maker and forces me to get some colors which ive put to good use for OSR projects like below.

    Prusa is doing great, Its not Kapton tape you see but rather Blue painters tape, I use the tape when i want a nice visually appealing finish, the Glossy look of the print on the PEI sheet isn't always ideal for the objects i make. I wrecked my first PEI sheet pretty good with printing TPU and ignoring the rules, You can get replacements from other sources aside from Pursa. Its not very fun to replace, but lmk if you want any tips when the time comes.

    Does your MK2 have auto bed leveling? I put in an order for the MK2S about a month ago and I'm expecting it to ship any day now, I'm really excited for auto/mesh bed leveling.

    Have you seen the multi-color add-on that prusa is now shipping? Things are really getting interesting with 3d printers now, this will be the 5th 3d printer that I have owned.

    yes the MK2 comes with auto bed leveling, BY far the cheapest unit to come with said feature to my knowledge. Overall features the mk2 has are pretty hard to beat.

    Nah i didn't see the multi-color was shipping but Cool none the less. Dont know if Ill go that route to be honest.
