Well sort of ok when you read down the comments it is a prototype prior to making an Aluminium one. The stupid is really there is no tool that won't deflect or twist the frame of the 3020 into a pretzel that needs more than a few hundred watts before you get to how much deflection and acceleration issues you generate on the gantry with that lump.  :palm:

Yeah, this reminds me of a review I saw of a PCB CNC machine that was made out of laser-cut lauan plywood. No matter how good the software is, that was a master-class in being politic.  :-DD

I did the same "prototype it in plastic" thing on my e-Bike a few months ago:

Not sure I am quite ready to abandon the sometimes painful STL's yet but for new designs it makes sense and it seems their days are numbered FINALLY :clap:

Fusion based but most of the points are relevant regardless of CAD package.

Thanks. I had heard of 3MF but if this is "the future" fine. I just opened F360, hadn't used it in a while so it updated itself. Expected save as .stl to be gone but it's still there. Not sure why the video title had "Save as STL is gone!" maybe it was just a phrase to draw in viewers.

However, I opened a previous design of mine, saved it as .3mf, and it opened in Cura OK (set down to the lower left corner but not a problem at all). Sliced and diced same as usual. So sure, why not transition over from now on? I do sometimes hack up a model in Tinkercad from an .stl, but there are converters out there to go back and forth. Onward into the future ...
