We recently received a Cubicon Single and I wanted to document our journey with it and its suitability to elementary or primary school classrooms.

Here is a Verbatim PLA benchy with a bunch of paperclip/lace clips.

You can see some warping on the clips and some didn’t stick well enough – this was disappointing.

I tried to adjust the contrast of the benchy so you can see how it prints.

I think the quality is quite good, still some banding – not completely smooth.
