What goes into your calculation for charging someone for a print? I currently take material weight (price per gram of filament), time to print (cost per minute of print time) and cost for additional components (led lights, bearings etc.) and then add a markup on top. Any other ways I could consider? ...

What is the difference between layer height and shell thickness?

I know layer height has to do with the quality of the print. But if the layer height is .06 or .02, is that too thin? Or does the layer height go on top of the shell thickness?

I have a brand new Wanhao D6/Monoprice Ultimate for sale in Canada. Was sent to me under warranty in exchange for my old one by Monoprice. I'll throw in a used All-Metal-Hotend kit off my old D6 into the box too. Monoprice wants $1042 CAD for just the printer, I'll do $950 CAD (free ship within Canada) if anyone is interested. If not I will post on eBay later.

The v3 version of the duct is a total fail, so i'm going to start all over and making the v4 version. On thing is for sure now, a square intern is just to had to get the airflow right, so that will be a no-go for the v4 duct. Will upload a first design soon, hope to get a lot of feedback on that. Will also make sure it will work for most (turbo) fans, so that everyone can benefit :) ...

Total newb question, but I searched and couldn't find a good answer (apologies if it is out there and I missed it)...

I don't understand the leveling process on this printer (I am coming from a Monoprice Mini). Should I be adjusting the z-stop screw or something? The bed itself is "level" and the leveling process goes through, but then it always seems like, the next print sort of resets the z-stop and I am way off again. I guess I just don't really understand the process of leveling vs. (or in conjunction with) the z-stop adjustment. Can anyone help me out? It almost feels like that first step of turning the dial until the nozzle is 1mm away from the plate just gets disregarded somehow, if that makes sense.
