    With all the amazing tech available, why can't a printer recognize when a print fails and stop? Surely it's possible?

                      in the slicing software, use the setting tree support. it's much easier to remove

                                        Is there anyway to put a release between the piece and the support so they split apart like a part from mold can you was the part before t he support is made or vice versa

                                            Next time just rotate the part 90 degrees and print it vertically so you don't waste a ton of plastic on supports, no gouged hand, 1000x less sanding required, and your vent won't look more terraced than a Japanese rice field

                                                    I don't know if anyone else has mentioned it. Check out Tree Supports in Cura's experimental setting. I've found that it generally is pretty good at reducing print time, while printing with supports.

                                                      Also in regards to the tree support. It makes the support removal process quicker/easier, and more importantly cleaner.

                                                    for car parts you should really try to use nylon or ABS not PLA. Even the high temp PLA will get soft and warp in a hot car.... Also a coating of purple glue stick on the base helps with adhesion. Also, it looks like your software needs to make the outer layer that is solid thicker so you don't see the infill. try 1 mm

                                                        You printer is huge. so you can print the separated parts vertically. so that the straight separation line touches the build plate. This way you can have less support and less sanding.

                                                            It would be easier to print them upright, no need for supports then.

That would never work in Germany. Everything what goes in to the enviroment has to be proven. We cant work just like that.

The reason why that would be important is you load one of the heads with a water-soluble material for supports, then load your primary material to the other side. Print gets done you just throw it in a tub of warm water and then the supports come off easily.

I'm by no means an FDM printing expert since I've only had my Prusa i3 MK3S MMU2S for the better of a month, compared to my SLA Formlabs Form² I had for years, but that Vent part in particular would have come out PERFECT standing upright while now it just looks _meh_ at best.
