    Ouch that’s a expensive toy lol
    Lets see what you start making and if it’s worth the pennies.

    Have you seen the 3D printers that use a liquid and solidify areas to male a 3D model?
    i was going to get one but the liquid is highly toxic.

    3D Printer

    Lol this seems typical of a new 3d printer owner. Printing stuff to improve the printer
    Mine is nothing like when it first started. I spent the first month improving it before printing anything I wanted.

    The thumbwheel looks good for a first go. A recommendation would be to add a few more top layers to remove that wavey effect, that's the plastic drooping between the infill, more top layers removes this. Also the bottom of it looks like you are printing too far away from the bed. Try lowering your nozzle slightly and squish the first layer into the bed more.

    The amount of brim you are using is overkill too. If bed adhesion is good (squish it into the bed more) then you won't need a brim. I use a skirt (brim detached from part) but only do 2 passes and that's only to get the plastic flowing though the nozzle. If you are struggling for adhesion use a cheap hairspray to help.
