Laser cut parts
If you look closely, you can see a slightly warped motor mount in the top right corner. I didn’t notice until assembly. I reoriented the parts and they printed fine, no warping. The room my printer is in is poorly insulated and has drastic temp swings.
I’m always happy when I wake up to a successfully completed print
After this print I ran into issues with my printer. The printer wouldn’t home x from sd or usb port. Turns out that one of the wires on the x endstop had broken off at the soldering point. I don’t have pics and wouldn’t dare post a pic of my poor in place soldering job, its working again though. Hang in there little printrbot, a MP3DP is on the way…

This is beautiful! I was hoping to be able to use acrylic as well, since our laser cutter at work can cut 1/4″ Acrylic, but not 1/4″ plywood. I’m probably about a third to half of the way through printing parts.
Looking forward to seeing more updates!
