    Cool machine! Is it going to have a rotating table, maybe for scanning as well?
    Looking forward to the testing on this bad boy :)
    Great stuff keep up the good work.

    yea really dig the rotating platform. is it for scanning or for a 4th rotating axis, great for printing circular or helical things, cups, spirals and tubes.

    Hi everyone, thanks for your comments and please submit more,
    It's not a rotating bed, just a nice flat particleboard table (cheap)
    The firmware has been re-written to run three Z axis leadscrews.
    We tested printing a huge OpenBuilds logo, with Taulman Nylon and while I expected it to stick, it's just not nicely enough to print.
    So we are quickly developing a HUGE heated bed platform underneath a 4.0mm safety glass print-bed so I think it will put us in a good position to print much larger parts early in the new year.

    The "custom designed" 1.20mm tip CatNozzle runs beautifully so we'll update you all as soon as we can :)

    What do you all think would be the best LARGE part to print first?

    And Happy New Year..!
