    Rocking Speeder Bike

    Don't try and print it at a commercial store. I was quoted prices of $3-500. I ended up buying my own printer and the filament cost $24. Of course, I've been printing for about 2 weeks straight though....

    Hi Francesco, I'm splitting this very piece as well and I was worried about warping, did you have any problems with warping on the bottom? I also noticed that you laid the pieces vertically, was that to try and deal with the overhangs?

Other than that, I'm planning on keeping extra filament in a box under the lowest table, and tools (pliers, tweezers, glue sticks and works in progress) under the second table. Anyone have a problem with the cable length for the control box though? I want to keep my control box outside of the enclosure so the circuits don't overheat, curious to see if anyone else has a problem with the control box being a tad bit too s...see more »I totally agree, putting the i3 on top of just 1 table puts it at a very awkward height for me and makes bed leveling a huge pain.
