  • Operational at Makersmiths. Seems to print a RasPi case fine. Mirage335 (talk) 11:27, 8 April 2016 (PDT)
  • Printed Reprap Wilson Z Brace. Failed becuase cartridge ran out of filament. Refilled filament making sure not to wind it too tightly (Did by hand). Also made sure to release tension on wound filament very few winds by counter rotation cartridge. --Nostromo (talk) 16:45, 16 April 2015 (PDT)
  • James reports: Attempted to print LCD Knob for Reprap Wilson but printer refused to start printing with a "Cartridge Empty" error message. Need to procure another cartridge and being doing cartridge swap procedure to bypass this check. --Nostromo (talk) 09:52, 13 March 2015 (PDT)
  • James reports: Printed Y bearing holders from Prusa Mendel upgrade. New mirrored build surface is working well with Elmers glue stick (Easier to release parts). Several failed attempts at printing filament bypass for cube because of poor STL file orientation. --Nostromo (talk) 09:34, 1 March 2015 (PST)
  • James reports: Printer is operating well. There is slight warping of larger 4 inch parts on the corners but prints complete successfully. The part I was printing failed in a strange way (printed part was missing a geometric section). This might be due to forgetting to run heal in the software. Also when transferring the .cube file to the printer just use the USB key as it is far more reliable than the wifi. --Nostromo (talk) 13:49, 11 February 2015 (PST)
  • James reports: Performed Bed Leveling procedure (Ugh!!). Printing Wilson Piecemeal Y Idler. The print looks a little smooshed on the bottom. Consider recalibrating Z a little higher. --Nostromo (talk) 17:36, 5 February 2015 (PST)
  • James reports: Printed 2nd part on this printer. Reset Z axis to 1.60z so that it wouldn't smoosh the part as much. seemes to have worked but has a little bit of warping of the edges of the 5" part I was printing. Removing the part is requiring long times in a water bath to permeate the glue underneath --Nostromo (talk) 16:01, 8 February 2015 (PST)
