    And I thought it would be easy. I was 'almost' tempted to try one.
    Stop messing about - just get a Sub-driver!

    Cant go by that, its a learning curve. If its not setup properly like anything it will fail. When done right, these printers are worth their weight in gold.

      There is a learning curve for sure. I'm just getting more confident with mine. I printed up the plaque for the last waterline build that I did with my Makerbot. Turned out great (IMHO)...

      Pics were terrible and taken with my cell phone, but you get the idea. I guess it saved me about a day's worth of labor at the minimum, even if I could build the 3d letters by hand.
