Sweet! Well done! Sounds pretty quiet too.

Yeah its fast and quiet. I am really happy so far. As I said just need to do some tweaks and I will be ready to print off a bottom STFM prototype case, possibly in pink for a certain person ;)

Although printing something so large in one go is a challenge.

Finally received the PEI sheet for the print bed. Hoping to do a test print this weekend of an ST Case backplane to see how the printer copes with a large length print.

Just waiting for the bed to cool down. This prototype first print is going to help a lot with working out a removable back panel so we can have different setups such as a VGA socket slot for the H4 for the case. Possibilities are endless such as SD or CF card slot etc.

If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

I think someone is trying to bribe me into printing a pink STFM case :)

A leaded solder reel will do it :)
