I was keen to test the overhang capabilities of my new Artillery Sidewinder X1 3D printer so I created this specific overhang test.

The first upright is 0 deg, the second 10 degrees, the third 20 degrees etc, until we get right to the end in which case the level of overhang is 120 deg, so essentially facing downwards.

Overall, I am very impressed with the result and the level of overhang that the Sidewinder X1 3D printer can print certainly exceeded my expectations. And, whilst not perfect, especially in relation to the 'stringy' and slightly untidy result, I think with tweaked temperature and print speed settings the results can be even better. All in all though, it is the overhang I was testing here and I felt that was very successful.

I hope this test helps others.
