    Maybe it's just me (probably it's just me), but has anyone noticed that, when printing the default 3D Benchy from the SD card, the stepper motors start making what sounds like the kind of melody you'd associate with a children's song about a tug boat when they get to the upper part of the wheel house?

    Probably just me. And, just so you didn't completely waste your time reading this, here's an interesting article about 3D printer sounds.

    Thanks for the link, @Pierce! I have a buddy who was just asking about that the other day, and happens to be a big Mario fan. When my current print is done, I'll give it a try!

    @wfredette no worries! Just make sure you move print head into middle of bed first otherwise it might bash into the end stops etc... Post a video for us as well :) I'll have to give it a go when I am back home on Monday
