@sungo though I do have an interesting conundrum I've been battling. Yesterday the mini started acting off.. I couldn't place my finger on it but the proof is in the print.

Ever see this? Almost consistent gaps in material in both the side walls and top wall

@chuck @sungo Under-extrusion? Filament not the right volume per length (eg: oval, widest as expected dia, but thinnest less than expected), or something else slowing down the amount of plastic it expects to push out (eg: extrusion multiplier wrong, skipping extruder steps, wrong number of extruder steps/mm, etc).

@chuck @sungo I'd guess either your extruder is slipping (maybe the filament spool wasn't turning freely?) or there's a partial clog in the hotend

...or you're printing way under-temperature and the filament's not molten enough to squirt smoothly
