Another day of printing success started wrong.

My printer has some gastronomical distress. This filament is Gold eSun ABS. It is nto the problem from the filament. That printing beauty broke my thermister wire, and I had a thermal runaway. If your printer does not have this protection (Most Ender 3s), so beware. This shutdown was the only thing between me and a fire.

I also had another interesting print result with Purple Esun PETG. My next print was successful, and most of the rail buttons were salvaged.

My last print was with Yellow eSun ABS.

I do nto want to discourage you from trying these filaments. I have had great success with them since. I got a little too cocky and did not have my Z set perfect. It led to failures 2 and 3. The first was an old thermistor, and the wire broke.

I always worry I'm going to come back to find something like this!.

Normal people believe that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain’t broke, it doesn’t have enough features yet....

Prusa installed the thermal runaway based on their own experience. Consider what could happen without this safety feature and in an ikea cardboard case - an inferno...
