Automatically clearing the bed and starting the next print (Videos+Instructions) - Fully automated production! So when visiting the huge CNC shop where they build my hotends I saw an awesome auto-feed lathe that you load up with bar stock, it turns a workpiece, parts it off whereupon it falls into a little chute, and it then pops out the back of the lathe into a little basket for collection. The guy running the machine shop says he just fills the machine, presses "go" and goes home for the night! Well, I had massive engineering jealously right there. If he could do it, then why not me on my little RepRap?!

Thumbscrew to level bed from beneath (Page 1) — STL Sharing & Print Showoff — SoliForum - 3D Printing Community Trying to see a gap of 0.010 under a straight edge is not easy. When I put the straight edge from near left to far left, I can put a piece of paper under the straight edge and move it almost completely from front to back, so there are "lips" on the front and back edge. That is the only thing that I can detect using your suggestion. In particular, I cannot detect the 0.010 problems across the back.

RepRapWiki TEDxEWB Talk: Adrian Bowyer at Imperial College, London, introduces RepRap RepRap is humanity's first general-purpose self-replicating manufacturing machine. RepRap takes the form of a free desktop 3D printer capable of printing plastic objects. Since many parts of RepRap are made from plastic and RepRap prints those parts, RepRap self-replicates by making a kit of itself - a kit that anyone can assemble given time and materials. It also means that - if you've got a RepRap - you can print lots of useful stuff, and you can print another RepRap for a friend... RepRap is about making self-replicating machines, and making them freely available for the benefit of everyone.

Also, if I want to cancel a print and restart it right away with tweaked settings, I’m too impatient to cool it down first.
