I'm now interested, now that I see these people are addressing distortion of ABS parts :https ://qidi3d.com/products/r-qidi-technology-i-fast-3d-printer-industrial-grade This is something of value to me. Anyone else using this system?
As an owner of a MK3SMMU2S and a Prusa Mini, I agree. To a point. Newer printers and firmwares are based on 32 but boards now. The mini has a 32bit controller, but the MK3S is still stuck with a board that has pretty much been "maxed out". I don't think there is much room left on the old 8 bit boards, so all of the newer features that are being developed everyday won't be able to be ported over. Newer features like input shaping (the patent just recently expired within the last few years) are pretty amazing.For normal FDM printers Prusa is tough to beat. They are more then the budget printers, but half the cost of that one you mentioned and are dead reliable.
I worked in a lab with 20+ Prusa printers and can confirm that they truly are workhorses. Easy to maintain and are as reliable as you could hope for.For normal FDM printers Prusa is tough to beat.

i would recomend you find something a bit less expansive( well depends on ur budget), but recently u can get very good stuff for half the price of this one or even less. sinceits ur first printer..I'm now interested, now that I see these people are addressing distortion of ABS parts :https ://qidi3d.com/products/r-qidi-technology-i-fast-3d-printer-industrial-grade https://cbdshop.club This is something of value to me.

It checks all of the boxes, and in all of the right ways.
I was thinking along the same continuous production lines. You could use the print head to clear the build plate or use a purpose-made arm to sweep the finished part off the build plate. Even a well positioned compressed air blast could both quickly cool the plate and push the part off once the plate cooled enough to cause separation.I powdercoated my flexible build plate with Cardinal BK01. I have to print at higher bed temperatures (65C for PLA and 80C for PETG) but I no longer have any lifting problems and when the bed cools the part is completely detached from the build plate.
Seems like a prime candidate for automated production, where you can just drop the bed temperature 20-30C, use the extruder to bump the print off, and warm back up and resume.
