Brand new Ultimaker 5, updated to latest firmware, XT calibration spot on

All Ultimaker PLA.

Making a small display model of half a wacky building exterior to display on studio wall shelf, going to be 6 each of 5 different 2-colour prints at least. first tests very wobbly near end of print with standard supports, went back to Xmas special trees

Spotted daylight through cracks on 1st attempt to print, aborted, checked model, checked XY calibration, resliced with 'built-in 'vVsual - Extra Fine', crossed my fingers and ran over long weekend (4 1/2 days - keeping an eye in Cura monitor and with a RingCam to check for filament run outs.

Still got at least one gap in every print.

2nd run waiting to go for the Yellow/Blue half.

STL files merged and scaled to 150%
