I thought you guys might like to see the distraction that has kept me away from my MRL project for the last few months. I built a RepRap 3D printer and began modifying it. Here are some pics.
This was the basic pritner kit I bought.
This was the printer after the first round of self printed upgrades.
I decided to keep the pritner in the garage so I needed some method to keep the tempatures stable. I decided to build an enclosure.
And here is the finished product. Now most of my electronics equipment and my 3D print material is contained in this simple roller chest.
