It's a "Cheeze-Wizz" printer.

It works about as well as you might expect.

I'd recommend against the DIY filament extruders. Its not that they can't work so much as it adds yet another variable to an already complicated machine. I've also got a filastruder from the initial kickstarter. It does work as advertised, but you really need an electronic spooler to go with it and a dust free, ventilated environment. I don't have a spooler so when I use it I'm left with a room full of filament that I may or may not be able to spool by hand, with enough variation in diameter that I wouldn't want to use it for anything that required a consistent finish.

I saw this earlier today and came here to post but was apparently beaten to it. The video is worth a watch unless it's too cheesy for you.

I like the part(s) where it doesn't work according to plan. Invention of the year 2015? Move over apple watch.

Soon to have inventables spindle mount and 1M X axis.

Very cool!

Glad to see someone having success.

I‘m currently struggling w/ my Ordbot to get it suitably tuned and calibrated.

I’m losing steps along the Y-axis — everything else seems to be working pretty well. Kind of wondering if I should try replacing the NEMA 14 w/ a NEMA 17.

Bigger is better. Might try another controller firmware.
