I am interested in shipping this machine to anyone that shows interest in it. It is usually treated like a 'junk' machine for people to use. This is fine, I will probably keep it for myself. I'm glad to hear that it works for you, and I hope it can work for everyone, no matter what it's purpose.
The new layers made this printer a lot bulkier, at 1.5X the size of my first gen printer. It is made of thick metal, and is tougher than anything else that I have built. I'm more pleased with the whole design than the original printer. The design is nice because it suffices and you won't break it by accidentally injuring it. I plan on repairing the back plate, as it's supposed to be re-usable, and broke. d2c66b5586
