The internet: the ideal bed temperature for ABS is 110 degrees Celsius.

Me: Holy shit is that even possible???

Side note: PLA has no scent that I can detect, but ABS smells FOUL

ABS filament, as it turns out (at least the kind I have), is more brittle then PLA, and my current setup isn't smooth enough for it not to break. I'm taking the filament sensor out of the process (this spool is full anyway) and trying again.

Ultimately, I'll have to find a better, smoother setup.

i've got a pretty good camera angle now to do a nice pretty timelapse video, i'll try to remember to do that on the next one.

Now that I have the filament sensor and direct extruder drive installed on my Creality Ender 3 , I think it's pretty close to its Final Form. I just need to spend some time arranging cables and making everything all neat and tidy.
