I’m aware that sometimes, when using too big or too small parameters, there are some rendering issues.To prevent such issues change only one parameter at once and check the result.
I never tested the water proofness of this case. For more information see https://blog.prusaprinters.org/watertight-3d-printing-part-2_53638/
For Projects with ESP32, ESP8266, Arduino, Sonoff, IoBroker, IoT. In- and outdoor 🙂
