Been having lots of printer issues, it looks like bad adhesion but it's actually severe under-extruding in disguise. I had followed a guide to better calibrate my printer and tweak my flow rate and it has ruined the first layers and made all my prints super brittle since, so I'm probably not gonna keep the setting. Also had the filament spool fall onto a printer mid print in the second pic lol

I hope I'm wrong but do you have two left biceps printed? It could just be the angle of the picture?

Everything looks great though!
You are not wrong-- I am a certified moron! I hoped nobody would notice. It'll be the last piece I do lol but hey extra pieces for practice!

Thanks though :)

Use it for stress tests and stuff! Ive broken a sweat running to my printer because I've started the same part before!

Even more issues! Hurray! I tried to print the remaining portion (turns out that it actually just fell off the build plate and was completely OK to use the rest of) but I am having some random issues cropping up... so in the meantime, here is a cut up codpiece in case anybody looks for a good way to cut it in the future. I can't help but see that a lot of builds skip the "slicing my parts into smaller chunks" step so if you're like me and looking for some good "tried and true" ways of chopping bits up, here ya go. I'll probably do this for the rest of my pieces just so people can reference it in the future :)

Normally split in half this would be fine, but it just barely fits past the buildplate so yeaaahhh.
also-- just finished my lab work as well so I have lots of free printing time! woo!
