Finally got ABS to perform reliably. Here's how. Hope it helps someone. Does anyone else do this?

Hey, had a watch.

I don't print ABS much, but I've never needed extra heat on the upbox+. Possibly the Upmini just doesn't have the voltage to heat the bed and the chamber quickly or maintain it. Never used it so I won't weigh in =0

One thing I noted on the video is the four parts at the end which had their rafts overlapping. If you merge the models before printing, you get a single raft designed as if it were one object, and it might help with the clicking a little.
