Re: Automatically removing prints?

Thats pretty cool. the gcode coding part of getting it to do this would be straight froward enough. looks like an easy mod too.... my biggest fear is what happens when the part dosn't pop off. :shock: defiantly not something i would let run unattended. I have to admit, assembly line type capability ...

Re: M2 Kit Sales To Pause

places like printbot sell the kit for the same price as the assembled model. frankly that makes sense to be because typically as a company, your going to end up spending a large amount of time supporting the builders. I suppose assembling it yourself is interesting. but frankly, since any company bu...

Re: Where are native leafy trees in the USA?

plenty of leafy trees in NY. The state tree is the sugar maple. but there are plenty of other spices here. in fact, its rare for me to see a pine tree.

Theres no...
