Backlash Compensation & Auto Bed Leveling

Tom and Stefan talk about PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), 3D printer nozzle wear and vapor smoothing. The news section covers the question if bio plastics are not as biodegradable as advertised and Prusas newest release of their slicer, now called PrusaSlicer. Both talk about the necessity of backlash compensation that Lulzbot just announced for their new printers. In the Topic Of The Week, they discuss Auto Bed Leveling and if it’s cleaner to just level the bed properly in the first place manually. Question cover, if you can over-dry your filaments and if and how you can print g-code that was pre-sliced for another nozzle diameter.
