    On that note, Swedish company 3D Prima launched their own flexplate system just now. Might be an option for us Euros, Whambam ships from China and I'll probably be hit by customs import fee when they get around to handling my package that arrived in Sweden on Aug 28th and still hasn't been processed because PostNord is a disaster. :rotate:

    Decided to try a test print without painters tape. I thought I had my leveling dialed in real nice.

    But when I popped them off, there was no bottom, just tiny mostly transparent little squares, with lines between them and a pretty good divot right in the middle of my build sheet. Try leveling things again, and it's pinching the build plate when I z-home. Run adjustments. Z-home again, still pinching. Check the z end stop switch, and the metal arm had come if, so it was going a couple mm father down to press the plastic button.
    Reattached the arm and Z-home is working again. Unfortunately my build sheet is trashed, so back to painters tape until I decide if I'm getting glass or not. Jacking up my build sheet the first time I printing directly on it is a special kind of dumb.



    Also, can I get my @ removed from that quote tree.

    Ikea Lack hack progress!

    Two extenders attacked with with glue and screws, but then I decided that just glue is probably plenty enough for this, so I could use my first prototypes instead of printing two more extenders with screw-thingies.

    Down side of OctoPrint webcam mentoring monitoring, you don't see when the side opposite the camera pulls up from the bed.

    Still gonna be a useful print I think, but a bummer to come home to.

    Lack hack complete! Right now I'm only using two tables, we'll see if I add the third table some time - right now the upper edge of the delta printer is at nose level, so that's a pretty good height for it.

    Turns out my floor is really uneven up against the wall so I had to prop up one leg to make it stable.

    Rapid prototyping going through three case designs over the weekend for a smart air flow regulator for my smoker.
