I was one of the few in my area hosting an open house on 12/3 as part of 3D Hubs' "3DPrintingDay" event.

Re: Testers Needed

Anything to make the process simpler is welcome - can't wait for this and the all metal motor mount (which I desperately need as I can't print one worth crap with ABS and my original one broke).

Re: Zebra Plate

Just got in my Zebra plate - I'm using clips and so far not seeing any bend on it. I'm not bending the plate to remove parts as I'm trying to reduce the amount of fiddling with the build plate for z-cal purposes.
