Okay I stopped this at 10%... Basically because I can see the head hitting the stringy bits side and also pushing them about..

It looks like there is supposed to be fake walls to clean the head goes around...

So I'm trying this traffic cone object and the fake walls around the outside..

That's called a brim. You can also use a raft, which rises the object from the build plate.

Don't do ABS unless you absolutely need it. Way way harder to get it to stick to the plate and also not to warp while printing.

I did a test tube with ABS, the edges started to curl up tiny bit.. I'm just experimenting the moment... :)

Well, you'll find their use out eventually. Some object really need it because otherwise they'll come loose from the build plate during printing (small footprint).

About your first print, it seems to have a slight over extrusion, but overall, it's a very good first print.

As for me, i have a very custom prusa i3 clone.
Sorry for the size of the photo. (and i got the orientation bug again.....)
