Heya! Great design!

Love the knurled look :)

Have you tested it yet? Do you pack the material prior to pressing or do you just press the loose leaf into the puck form and press?

I tried different grinders and found that a fine grind is better for a compact puck.
This one works for me: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2597787

I use the funnel and packer tool from https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:963088 when loading the press for ease of use.

The knurled version is that much easier on the hands when printed from PETG and performs really good. I recommend that you adjust the number of bottom layers for the cap to make the bottom completely solid for added stability when pressing.

Apart from that i like smaller pucks better since they get used more evenly compared to thicker ones and it is really easy to clean the oven. They just fall out of the oven with a little tapping, but that might also be due to the fact that i am using the New Vape 3D Screen. Perfect combo if you ask me.

I followed your instructions but printed the press in Pro Pla with a higher perimeter count and it works fantastically! This improves the Pax experience so much! Thanks again for the great files and advice :)

awesome :) that's great to hear :)
