    Looks pretty great so far. Is that with the 0.4 nozzle or did you fit the 0.25?

    I wonder if lowering the print speed might also have helped with the 0.4mm.... Some of those jagged edges could be a result of a big fat nozzle (in comparison to the part) moving quickly. Smaller nozzle works well as a solution too.

    I have been doing that now with the 0.25, down to 50%, the cogs shown above where both at 100% though

    All three gears are printed with samples of metalic filament from Faberdashery, the light Brown is what they call "Bling Bling Gold".
