I had a ROBO3D as my first printer. They were just out of kickstarter and struggling to meet orders which they did and now they've got a decent product at an amazingly low price for all the printer quality and performance that you get. So its a great printer now, but back then sheesh! What a sucky printer. Hahahaha - funny how things change!

Back then the wiring harness was a rat's next of cluttered mess trapping heat onto the RAMPS board, which got so hot it melted the bed heater connector among other failures. I'm lucky the thing did not go up in flames. So for that reason, I think the print quality was a bit off which is why I told you all that, so now we get to the point here, which is a tail of two kitties.

Say what? Yes, a tail of two kitties. Wait I have a Skype call. More in a jiffy.

Les out!

Les make it happen!

    OK, so anyway here goes with the story. I printed a kitten statue back about a year and a half ago on my ROBO3D and it had a hole in the top of it's head and some messy filament deposited across and around the hole. This, I reasoned, was due to the slope of the head and surrounding area of being like a flattened down sphere.

    Well I went to do a test of an internal support idea that I had, in which I put a rod from the throat of the kitten, running internally to the center of this dome, to help with the bridging. Long story short when the printing was done I found no difference between the rod sample and the unmodified sample. The Ultimaker was so damn good at doing it's job that the kitten was printed flawlessly with or without my help of the internal support!

    That goes to show you what an amazing printer we have. I feel so fortunate to have one.

    Les out!

    ok ok I'll tell you a funny story :p

    A guy goes over to his friend's house, rings the bell, and the wife answers.

    " Hi, is Tony home?"

    " No, he went to the store."

    "Well, you mind if I wait?"

    " No, come in."

    They sit down and the friend says "You know Nora, you have the greatest breasts I have ever seen. I'd give you a hundred bucks if I could just see one."

    Nora thinks about this for a second and figures what the hell - a hundred bucks. She opens her robe and shows one. He promptly thanks her and throws a hundred bucks on the table.

    They sit there a while longer and Chris says "They are so beautiful I've got to see the both of them. I'll give you another hundred bucks if I could just see the both of them together."

    Nora thinks about this and thinks what the hell, opens her robe, and gives Chris a nice long look. Chris thanks her, throws another hundred bucks on the table, and then says he can't wait any longer and leaves.

    A while later Tony arrives home and his wife says "You know, your weird friend Chris came over. "

    Tony thinks about this for a second and says "Well did he drop off the 200 bucks he owes me?"
