Today I will review a new exciting product from a well known 3D printing company: E3D! They are liked for revolutionizing hotends throughout history, and this time they did it again with the HC or Heater Core. I will talk about some aspects of this new product that are game-changers, and I will rant about the features that I don’t really like to balance the pros and the cons.
I am pretty sure, at least once, you asked yourself: What is the lowest you can spend to have a quality 3D print. Through my articles, I have always said that are lots of variables that determine the quality of the final product. But, how can you have a performant 3D printer at the lowest cost?

When it comes to optimizing your 3D printer, one of the aspects to consider is definitely the printing speed. The duration of a print is already eternal, so why not optimize this parameter properly? You may be wondering, “just raise the speed in the slicer”, yes ok you are right. But how far can we raise it without imploding the printer? Take some time and calmly follow these basic concepts related to movement speeds.
