I just wanted to take a quick survey of the group: what plastic are you using to print your parts? PLA? ABS? Other?

I grew tired of having to purchase new Formlabs Form1+ vats, so I designed one that I could print on my Prusa i3. It is printed in PLA with 4 perimeters, 50% infill, 0.2mm layer height, and uses standard 1/4" soda lime glass. I am honestly surprised no one has done this yet.

Quick question: does OctoPrint support having multiple printers plugged into a powered USB hub and then allowing the user to select which printer to print to using a dropdown box or similar from the GUI?

A massive 40-hour print of a Saber Toothed Cat, Smilodon fatalis.  The final print measures 12" from base of skull to tip of jaw and was printed in Gold PLA from SeeMeCNC.  I ended up printing this in four pieces so I could fit it on my printer and I glued it together with super glue.
