Cool project that might be of interest to A5S owners (no endorsement - I haven't tried it!)

    After a few days working the printer, I found these improvements.

    The improvements I've noticed are two basically:

     The first and obvious is the improvement in extrusion control thanks to the direct system. I'm using retractions between 0.6 and 0.8mm. 
    The second is to have a belt tensioner. My A5 was one of the first and it was a pain to tighten the strap and the vibrations and artifacts it created. 

    The worst thing I think would be the loss of impression volume space staying at 270x285x260mm. In my case I do not make such large pieces but I recognize that it is a loss that must be valued.
