Prusa XL (obviously) & Creality MMU?!

This podcast episode covers the physics behind Stefans recently reviewed CHT nozzle and his DIY version of it. Both discuss the advantages and disadvantages of this design and how it compares to a Volcano hotend. Stefan briefly talks about how he got kicked from AMAZON with his threaded inserts. The big topic is the Prusa XL and its new, smart features. This new design includes an extrusion force sensor that another company is using to print fully dense FDM parts so Tom and Stefan analyze whether this might also be something that could be implemented on the Prusa. The last topic covers the CoPrint which is an MMU project that Creality seems to endorse, though also comes at a steep price tag. Questions cover a novel 3D laminating technique, the question of why thermal fuses are rarely used in 3D printers, and how much Tom and Stefan earn with this podcast.
