My first abs project on the printrbot. I upgraded to the heated bed and with the help of abs juice (tried glue and aquanet) I got the print sticking and have been slowly tweaking ever since. I plan to acetone bathe to Smoot then paint. I may wear it to maker faire nyc. Not sure it I wanna be one of those guys lol.

This is a light up wearable arc reactor. Plans from here http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:32274

Getting new printer dialed in. I settled on the printrbot simple metal. Very happy with it so far. Just gotta work on my z artifacts.

Figured I post some pictures of progress.

So what was happening is that the extruder has a 25mm offset on it  for bedleveling to compesate for the probe.  So when it goes to 152mm on a large print its really trying to go to 152mm+25mm, so printrbot had me remove the offset and its all good. Just need to figure out the layer banding/staggering i am seeing now.

+Fr. Robert Ballecer, SJ  I just ordered a Da Vinci 1.1 PLus. I was wondering what you know about resetting the cartridges if anything on this particular mode. I have only see 2 forum posts about it. I've been reading up on how to do it.  I ordered aa Arduino Uno to give it a shot. I am wondering if i should return it and get the Da Vinci 1.0 (maybe the AIO) and use the custom firmware. Any thoughts? I am limited to best buy btw because I am using all my reward zone points so kinda stinks but its a free 3d printer....I am just not feeling the DRM filament. So been looking at ways to circumvent that.

They were supposed to have the tech support call me yesterday. No call. Really thinking about flashing the firmware and being done with xyz.

I will start with the results. Where to begin....I will start with I have lost 37lbs(Update 43 now). I can fit into slim jeans. I haven't been able to wear anything but loose fit since middle school. My physical endurance has gone through the roof and my body looks better than it has in over a decade. Last but not least by any means, I don't mind taking my shirt off anymore! There are so many great things about MELT. I love the social events, themed boot camp and warrior training. But most of all the people are great. That's what makes MELT so different, the community. It starts with the trainers. Their attitudes and beliefs clearly trickle down to the M.e.l.t. Community. The classes are always a blast and never the same twice. The leveling system they use for each exercise makes it easy for anyone of any fitness level to get start and succeed. I highly recommend MELT to anyone serious about their health and physical fitness.
