  • Card slot 3D print - notch too large, card can be pushed in behind the slot
  • Get rid of STOP PRINT from menu - can hit it accidentally during long print
  • Fix belt hole in carriage to motor
  • Fix carriage to idler placement
  • Improvement - Flexible surface for popping prints right off

Control Panel Wiring and Test

This is part of a quality control sequence, which requires identificiation of all wires: Final_Five_Minute_Control_Panel_Test


"The most immediate thing I am hoping to use the printer for is actually to do with the pen plotter hack - I'm working on a project where we produce pen plotter drawings generated from code and I thought a universal axis to be a far more flexible solution. -Jon S, UK."

can we get benchmarks/video reviews?
