Anyone in the US want to go in on an order for an Aluminum Heat Bed with permanent PEI Coating?

Alex had one made that will move the clips out of the way of the nozzle. I I want to order one but would like to split the shipping cost since it is 42.99 Euros to have it shipped, but apparently quantity doesn't matter on shipping.

Just curious if anyone else encountered stepper cables with incorrect pinouts? Note the black and green swapped. Black should be outside. (And yes, I know to use forum for real questions...)

Watching the bottom portion of a violin print from my OctoPi Cam... Any advice on what's happening to the quality of this print? It's printing at .3mm layer height, 2 perimeter shells, and 50% infill like they recommend on the www.hovalin.com site. Is this an extrusion multiplier or width issue?

So I'm a bit confused, do new bb orders come with the new hybrid extruder setup?

My Full Moon Friday continues... so this just happened, the belt broke. After some help from +Richard Caunt and +Gregory Holloway I loaded up the Gcode file instead of the STL, ran my usual G28 and G29 once I hit print from the right rear corner the carriage tried to move straight back from the rear corner repeatedly before I could hit the emergency switch and the belt snapped! Do I really need to take off the entire top and both sides of the carriages to replace the belt on this one side?

Octoprint users everywhere need to get behind this.

cooo that rear square nut on the extrusion fan mount isn't much fun is it ? 
On the plus side...the smaller dremel drum sander bit is the perfect size to sort out the mounting hole for the extruder .

Not as good at Steve's that's for sure! Printed in just over 3 hours, 125% scale with volcano 1.0m nozzle, one perimeter no infill. Using e3d everyday white PLA at 195c. Not quite sure how to get the raft off... That might have been a mistake...
