    PLA is the easiest to print and the best starting point.

    There's a bunch of different calibration prints that can help see how your printer does and tune it for your filament. Go to thingiverse and just search calibration. Each of them has something they help you tweak ... but that being said also dont be afraid to just load up some small models and try to print them. Some people get so caught up in benchmarks they rarely enjoy their printer (Think people that just mod and do dyno after dyno but never actually race their vehicle kind of thing).

    I'd join one of the creality or ender groups and see if someone has a profile made for the printer, they are often much better than the factory profiles that are poorly tuned.

    Benchy is a benchmark sure. Lots of videos to help you figure out the issues you may have from it.

    I'd head back to spool3d for filament, their plÓ is decent and safe starting point.

    So not necessarily 3d printing related but I ordered a laser cutter/engraver today, should arrive mid July. Pretty excited for the new addition to the workshop.

    400x600mm cut bed, 60W laser, both sides open so I can feed longer material in. Excited to see what new things I can do combining the two.

    Brackets to allow v85tt windscreen to be raised for those over 5'6" CF-PETG. Now I need to figure out the angles again because now he wants a block off plate to reduce airflow beneath
