@Icky are you able to do large prints in like that in one hit? I'd be interested in an early version for my H4 if you are up for producing a small run?
Tried doing the first run of a case bottom today but ran into several printer issues. Hotend and extruder issues.

When I get this rolling I will do a small run but you will have to be behind @exxos and his pink case :)

I'm in no rush. If there is a choice of colour that dark grey the falcon is would be my preference. Otherwise anything except the pink :)

I have been battling with my printer for the last couple of weeks as @exxos can attest, listening to my rants on finding root causes.

Any how this is the first full print starting to emerge on the Giant Panda of the case bottom part. its early days and I don't want to jinx it but its managed to get past the first couple of layers.

Thanks @terriblefire.

It's been a blast building this monster even with its annoying foibles.

At the moment the only thing I need is time which we don't get enough of and lots of crossed fingers this run works :)

We had a failure. There were not enough crossed fingers.

Turns out someone went into the office and then left the door open with a draft that made the print warp at the edge resulting in a failure of the head hitting the edge in turn skewing the layers. Been working on the front enclosure door and chamber controller.

Well i have a nice Atari ST shaped placemat now.
