    We want to work the Hemera we bought so we can talk about it on the podcast.
    I know... you don't listen to the podcast.
    We looked at mounting it on an Ender-3, but... MEH! The weight will offset the balance inherent in the single lead screw for Z design. Did not want it as a tool for the TC... too many changes on a complex machine we got running optimally.
    Any other machines people recommend we go get to put our Hemera on for the review???
    A low budget Chinese machine is what I would like to use. We intend to go buy it so low cost is better.

    For the record, I listen to the podcast :)

    I currently have a Titan Aero on my CR-10S which I am considering swapping out for a spare Hemera I have. It has dual Z-axis lead screws and the Titan Aero is using a full size NEMA17 already so I don't expect the weight to be much of a problem. I guess that's not on the cheap end though, dual lead screws seem to be one of the first features to go at the low end.
