    I just got a Toll delivery - left at the front door no signature (unless there are options for the sender to opt out?)

    One of 3 options.

    Driver is a tard and did his job wrong, sender did not request a signature or authority to leave was provided.

    Couriers please...waiting two weeks for part one of a two part shipment from Sydney to Melbourne (One part was delivered in two days). They seem to have some issues at the moment.

    Meanwhile I have a package from Turkey that's arriving tomorrow in about a week.

    Dunno about Perth but Core electronics seems to have them and also concept fasteners probably too. Though dunno what concept is like for retail.

    RS is also sometimes good for getting out of a pinch with little things like this.

    Check RS no luck unfortunately they don't stock them :( but yeah RS is great - free shipping and real quick! next day shipping for my $2.50 ec11 encoder lol

    If you were in Perth (unless you are?) I would love take that offer - I assume aus post during this time would be shocking anyway :(

    They're still quoting 3-6 working days from Tassie to Perth. Earliest mail would be Monday though.

    Just got a Sovol SV03 printer (with a huge 350 x 350 x 400 mm bed). My older printers are all good, but I wanted a bigger bed size.

    The printer quality is really amazing for the price.

    been wanting a bigger printer myself was waiting for the cr10 or x1 to go on sale. Might do some research on this one.

    Edit. Did a quick read and you get a lot of printer from factory!

    I think the ender also would be a good buy. Im now looking for big prints to showoff the printer (I will do some helmets myself for my movie room) I cant find anywhere that allows you to filter by print size though.

    Printers this big can generate much more useful prints around the house i think..

    Im seriously thinking about selling all my others and just have two of these, one with a bigger nozzle/different hotend for fast printing...

    you can scale up models to be bigger. may not be great if there's not much initial detail in them. but it'll work.

    My SKR Mini e3 v2 just arrived to upgrade the main board in the cr20 pro.
    Looks like it should be a straight swap out for the hardware then I’ll need to work out how to set up marlin for it.

    I'f you haven't already done so, check out Teaching Tech on Youtube. He has a number fo videos on upgrading to this board. I followed his Marlin suggestions when I upgraded my Ender 5 with that same board and it's working well. About to mess that up with some new upgrades :)
