Heartthrob Red, Pretty in Pink, Moonstruck White
Grab your pink party dress, and go wait on that porch like your latest heartthrob is on his way. This month features colors that would make Molly Ringwald proud! A true throwback to the greatest the 80s had to offer, this collection is totally rad.
Heartthrob Metallic Red - A deep, rich red with a subtle texture, Heartthrob Red could become your new favorite red. The combination of silver and gold pearls bring complexity to this red. Darker than Candy Apple Red, it may remind you of Amie’s Blood of My Enemies Red or Garrett’s Chaos Red.
Pretty in Pink Pearl - If you love pink, but Cupid’s Crush Pink is too over-the-top for you, you might just fall in love with Pretty in Pink. A soft, pale pink with a slight sheen and smooth texture. Inspired by the 80s icon herself ;-)
Moonstruck White Satin - With its slight sheen and smooth texture, this white will have you moonstruck! It’s the perfect complement to the bright and bold hues of this month.

Interestingly enough, I found a similar result with the above parameters on all 3 machines at 205 C - 235 C. The Prusa Mini is upgraded to a Bondtech heatbreak to move the PTFE junction farther away from the hotend to reduce hang-ups. The Prusa MK3 has the stock Prusa heatbreak with lip, but swapping to a standard e3dv6 heatbreak or e3d lite6 hotend can bring more trouble-free results. The Creality Ender 3 requires no modifications.
We know printing isn't always trouble-free so if you're looking for instructions on how to wrangle those loose coils or need other printing help, please consider our getting started guide!
