Has anyone found/made a hardcase for their Glass? I'd love to find a properly sized Pelican case that was thin enough to be packed in a laptop bag....anyone seen anything like that?

Speaking of 3D printers...it looks like sometime in the next couple of months, I might be in the market for a printer for my house. Been looking around and asking others what they liked these days, and besides the standard sort of Replicator 2, what do you guys like now? Primarily interested in printing PLA, but flexibility wouldn't hurt. Thinking hard about the Lulzbot Taz, as I've heard good things. Also really like the RoStock Max, but worry about the open print area on oversize prints. 

Anyway: let me know what you think! :-)

I'm in a holding pattern at the moment so I haven't been diving into each printer deeply as I once did. I'm really waiting for the next major leap in capability, which to me needs to hit 2 of the three characteristics of resolution, material type, and reliability. Still waiting.

Hey gang! I'm still getting used to my Glass, only had it for a week! Just got my University networking gang to add it manually, so I'm up with data on campus now. :-)

Congrats! I think getting mine connected to the University network was my biggest challenge as a new user back in July. Getting an "exception" from IT will be easier now with my 2nd generation Glass, because one of our Library Systems folks also has Glass. For one, he has a really easy way to see what my Glass' MAC I.D. is!

First print off of my brand new Lulzbot Taz 2. Looks great!

That was ABS at .2mm. PLA seems to print a little better at .3, but I haven't installed a cooling fan yet. That might help.

Hey gang! I'm going to have to pull the trigger on a 3D printer purchase very soon (in the next 3 weeks or so, 4 weeks tops). If you had $2500 to spend, and needed: PLA (other filaments a plus, but not strictly necessary), as big a build platform as you could get, NO KIT (need to pull out of box and start printing asap), reliability (going to be printing dozens of LibraryBox containers)...what would you buy? 

I'm wary of Makerbot, even though I have experience with them, just because of the extruder issues, the build plate problems...I could get a Rep2, but then I'd have to throw another $500 at it to make it reliable. I would LOVE to get a Lulzbot Taz, but they aren't giving me any hints as to when they might be on sale again. Other than that, I've looked at the MendelMax 2 (https://store-rqhoyac.mybigcommerce.com/printer-kits/mendelmax-2-3d-printer-fully-assembled/) and the Solidoodle...but there aren't that many fully-built that meet all the above that I can find.

SO! Point me to your favs! Give me reasons! Help me spend money!

Jason, more info on Tjiko from the Pres:"I hope to have everything working before the World Maker Faire New York next weekend.
 Two options here:
 -Fully assembled $1,999 with LCD panel, stand alone, SD card input and the best heat bed on the market (helios)
 - Kit $1,499 I will personally supervise the user assembling and first print.
 This is one of big volume printer, bigger than the replicator 2. It's 8x8x10 inches." He says he has a couple in stock right now.
