Something that looks like square and hexagon!

OK, now you decide. Can you tell which is the square and which is the hexagon?

There are 3 layers, roughly a whopping 0.5mm thick. The Z-axis was handled manually between layers, otherwise it was completely automated. The nozzle was the same huge 1.5mm worm-squirting monstrosity (about 0.5mm dia) as last time. There is video if anyone is interested.

The first edge of the square failed to extrude every time, which we'll have to deal with when we start calibrating things. But for a first-off attempt with next to no anti-backlash and zero calibration I'm pretty pleased. I think we're on to a winner here.

Brandy and hot bath time :)

Vik :v)

Yeah, it sure is... and we're privileged to be sitting here and watching it happen. :-)
