my wishlist for a new printer

hi I have a Creatr HS but it is missing some features I would like to see in some next generation printer: - little brush to wipe nozzles before starting to print other material. - more lights inside - closed box with ventilator ( no ABS stink..) - 2 nozzles ( 1 support and 1 build or 2 build) ok - standalone features not necessary.( cheaper) - on the fly parameter changing while printing . ok - nozzles on same carriage but 1 nozzle can retract and extend so it does not influence the build of the other - bowden is ok but direct drive is better.( for soft materials) - filament diameter sensor with extruder factor adaptation - filament break,/tangle/end sensor, automatically pause print, wait for new filament. - inline filament dryer ( is that possible? ) preheat it between spool and nozzle? or integrate heated filament spool chamber with humidity control sensor/system - filament movement sensor to measure real filament movement behind drive wheel ( slipping?) may be a bit much.. - automatic bed leveling anything else?

Filament Guide

ABS
  • Extrude at ~ 225o C.
  • Requires heated bed.
  • Works reasonably well without cooling.
  • Adheres best to polyimide tape.
  • Filament tolerances are usually tighter.
  • Prone to cracking, delamination, and wraping.
  • More flexible.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives or solvents(Acetone or MEK).
  • Fumes are unpleasent in enclosed areas.
  • Oil Based.
PLA
  • Extrude at ~ 180-225o C.
  • Benefits from heated bed.
  • Benefits greatly from cooling while printing.
  • Adheres well to a variety of surfaces.
  • Finer feature detail possible on a well calibrated machine.
  • Prone to curling of corners and overhangs.
  • More brittle.
  • Can be bonded using adhesives.
  • More pleasant smell when extruded.
  • Plant Based.
