Description

It’s been sitting idle for some time now…
* limited accuracy, object size is limited to under 10x10 cm
* has worked before, with heated bed and ABS
* roughed-up kapton tape on heated bed does work, sort of
* probably can be made to work again with little effort
* still using DC-motor based extruder, slow start/stop
* relay board for heated bed needs to be attached to the frame
* suitable as test-machine for Tosqa

It would be worthwhile to fix/tweak this unit, keep it as low-end / backup ABS printer.
