These are some resources I recommend for further reading if you are inclined. They may include literature from others, guides from myself, or even files for you to try for your printer.
Sean Aranda's "3D Printing Failures"
You will inevitably run into problems with your printer. Sean (3DPrintGeneral)'s book is an excellent resource for troubleshooting. It's also excellent for casual reading so you are versed in the problems that may arise when the time arrives, so that you are not scouring the index for brand-new info. In addition, his book contains a wealth of information on material science specifically for our niche of 3D printing. (Namely, how certain polymers react to heat, impact, etc.)
