    Nice, which resin printer? Was looking at getting an Elgoo or a Creality LR002.

    Layer lines? I found with PETG that I had to lower the print speed and play around with the nozzle temp, depending on the filament brand. Have you printed a temp tower for the PETG? What are your settings and did you have lines on PLA/other filament at all?

    AGS are very delayed at the moment. One parcel cleared customs on 8 July, and finally out for delivery today. At least it's moving now. That's a month since being received in Dubai, and a further month prior when the item was ordered in late May. Another parcel is still stuck in the system...

    Inverter and batteries

    I bought 2 similar mini ups units, but both had variable output voltage selectors (4.5v, 6v, 9v, 12v). Router was 9v so unit 1 set to 9v. Fiber modem was 12v so unit 2 set to 12v. I would not use a step-down for the 9v, not practical and not safe. Rather buy the correct unit.

    Inverter and batteries

    I find that if you have 4 hrs loadshedding, they take up to the same 4 hrs to charge (on a 2x 102ah battery system). There are some models that take slightly less at 2hrs, whilst others can take up to 6hrs to charge. I suppose it also depends on the inverters charge rate though, and whether you...

    Inverter and batteries

    They do that when charging or the power goes off and are running in inverter mode. There is one model, can't remember which, where the fan is always on. Check the specs of your model.

    AGS Tracking just popped up with another of my parcels delivered to US NY facility on 26 June by USPS, so approx. 2 weeks backlog it seems ;)

    So one of my parcels has been stuck in JHB for just on 2 weeks now with no movement; late this afternoon, the customs charges that are due suddenly appeared on the parcel tracking (previously was only reflecting the shipping cost that I had already paid) - I've just paid it and will see what...

    Thanks, got a second package that was only delivered to NY late last week, so can't do much now but wait ;) The earlier 2 June package is already in JHB now (via Dubai), but waiting for the JHB facility to start processing again.

    Which inverter? Is it a 12v or 24v model?

    Seems things are now moving. Also not sure if this is just coincidence, but I mailed them this morning around 11am asking if there is any update and suddenly the US parcel appeared on my App/profile at around 7pm. Shows originating from the US, but all the references are in Dubai (record...
