Nice print and a great test of your print skills.

Nice "senior project" print

Benchy and these sorts of "stress test" prints are great once you have everything tuned. I've printed a couple of these -- including printing on a Monoprice Cadet with an unheated bed and near-zero part cooling -- but they're really just more clutter. I've cut back after tossing a bunch. They can be useful if you've made changes to your printer or settings and just want to confirm that clearances are still good.

Unfortunately, a lot of people think these are necessary to troubleshoot basic problems when far simpler tests make for better diagnostics. After printing a bunch of 3 hour stress tests early on, I shifted focus to 15 minute prints for testing specific settings.

I printed one. It is not a thing of great beauty, but it does turn.
