New Spool Holder!

Inspired by CharlesPax's spool holder design, but lacking the room to bolt the spool to the side of the bot, I set out to design my own spool holder! Designs and STL's can be found at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8421, and more pictures after the break!

Orbit love charm by CDavis

Latest printed part! First part printed with my new hot end, and it turned out great!

The part can be found at http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:8366

New hot end!

Just finished my first print with the new MK6+ (or, as I think I should call it MK5+) hot end, and it's awesome! Heats up incredibly fast, and stays very stable, even at 250C

Lowrider

Just ordered the bearings for a lowrider XY carriage :-) Hopefully that'll quiet the machine down a bit, and possibly allow for higher speeds

Once I've got the new thermal core installed, I'll start printing pieces, pics to follow at that time!

Flattr

Hi all!

Cool new tech I thought I'd share with you: Flattr. It's a way of putting your money where your mouth is when you say something you see looks cool!
