    Take a look at this video.  I just printed this giraffe/turtle (don’t ask, my 13 year old daughter wanted it) and I noticed that at the end of the print the head was “bowing” as it was printing.  Just lack of support on the still hot PLA?

    Yup, two things, pla should have a print fan, and that much of an overhang needs support.

    Thanks Ryan.  I have a print fan but I think it had come unplugged for that print (I noticed it wasn’t turning on and found it unplugged).  I’m still trying to figure out supports and when I need to use them.  Learning curve and all that… lol.
