Sweet! Are you talking about the white/plastic enclosure which has those awkward slider clips on the lid? The one where I feel like I'm gonna rip off a nail when it gives

Not to get too far off topic, but what kind of car parts can be easily replicated with a decent 3d printer? I'd love to get into scanning/printing and model sharing, etc.

I'm curious about this now too. There's a couple new filaments coming out in January, one 20% CF, the other 30% glass, that hold up to temps over 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Could prove great for things like airboxes that aren't directly exposed to high heat, but still get heat cycle abuse under the hood. I might drop money on a good very large printer, or a great not as large printer, and this would be one of my first interests.

Think two biggest things is soluble supports and bed size. Multiple extruder systems have come down in price alot which opened alot of doors.

500 x 500 x 500mm build space on the Creality CR-10 S5 should be plenty, lol.
