First Complete Object & Tower of Ooze

Using card stuck to glass as a deposition base in Da Witch, I managed to persuade the RepRap to output a full 5mm thick sample hexagon - solid yet, without gaps - with no manual intervention whatsoever. It's a bit rough but I'm pretty pleased about it, and here's the photo to prove it:

The stuff on the left is the "Tower of Ooze" that is created as the nozzle, conveniently moved over this spot for the purpose, dribbles as it warms up. The tower sticks well to the card, solving the problem of using glass whereby the Tower of Ooze elopes with the hot print head and runs off across the deposition surface. Adhering to the card also stops the workpiece curling up like an old sandwich.

Vik :v)

It's beautiful! :-D
Vik, you techno-stud you. That is the coolest thing I've seen in a long time. My enthusiasm just went up another notch and I didn't think there was one higher setting!
