Artillery Sidewinder X2 - 3D Printer
« on: October 24, 2023, 18:34:33 »
For my birthday I got a new 3D Printer, the Artillery Sidewinder X2. The instructions in the manual that came with it was pretty good, but still left some stuff unmentioned that I wasn't aware of beforehand. I found a great video on YouTube that helped out.

I just came across another video which explains more about bed leveling for the 3d printer - https://youtu.be/oX4up29xUuw?si=ggRse729SdsdzAo1 . I'm glad I found this today because I've been noticing that sometimes it's difficult to get a model starting to print and I was thinking I might need to readjust the bed.
