ok so i have my first and second coat of silicone on the neck part i used mold release so it dont stick to my neck seal it is allready starting to harden and dry up here are some progress pics. i still have to put another two coats on it so it will not tare easy. i wil put some kind of pads or layer of something so it dont lay on my skin. but like i said this is going to be trial and error...

ok everybody i will post a link of a video for this but it is really easy to move in here are pics of the test neck seal i did not die it black because it was a test part but i will make me one now and die it black but i know it looks rough i did not trim the flashing off because i was excited to show you guys.
the last picture is the type of silicone i used it dyed really fast and it it picks up all the details. so if you are on a budget here is the answer, like i said im uploading a video of me wearing it and moving my neck with no pinching or discomfort at all i will post the link here as soon as it finishes its only about 1.5 mins long.... have any question feel free to ask..

I've had a lot of good luck with hatchbox at first but currently, I use e-sun. E-sun gives me consistent results.

For petG, tool is at 245, Bed is at 110 (only because I don't want to re-level the bed when I swap from ABS for a quick print. Otherwise I think 60 on glass with glue is just fine). Here are the rest of the important information:

Gives me pretty decent results but I can also get away with my abs settings as well which prints at 235C and lower retraction.

MoeSizzlac - Do you have your printer in an enclosure?
I do use an enclosure.

One of the first things I made once I got the machine. I built into the system a heater (basically just a halogen lightbulb), LED Lighting system, Smoke detector, octoprint, a couple of extinguishers in case of the worst event, and also a temp runoff shutoff switch relay which cuts power to the system if either the hot end tool or the heat bed get above (or below) a certain temperature.

I tried PMing you but it wouldn’t let me?? Build looks great. I really like your neck seal idea. I’ve always pondered doing something similar. I was wonder where you got the 3d printable neck seal file? I would like to print one for my H3 MKVI in the works and follow suit.
Thanks
Edit: oops sorry missed it in your first post. Do3d I see
