                          gotta say, the first printer using the fdm method is not calibrated well at all. My ender 3 makes better quality, so you may want to consider re-tuning it.
                          Edit: using only 10% infill on a part meant to be sturdy and strong is such a bad idea. Additionally, the quality (layer height mostly) also affects strength, and it really looks like it's going to break pretty soon

                                Hey Alec, Awesome video! Been doing this for a while now, quick tip 3D print the sprues on the model, then you don't have to wax them on later. I also use thicken command in Fusion 0.5mm to give some buffer for oxidation

                                          I think that off white translucent wax was sticky wax. You use that to bond the wax to the PLA.
