It's alive....

The little blob on the laft was my first attempt at printing a cube of 10x10x50mm. On the right was what I printed last night.

Success.... finally. The previous two failed because the RAMPS 1.4 board was overheating even with what I thought was adequate cooling. After liberating a fan from an old dell workstation I had in the cupboard, all started working. That fan does create ALLOT of airflow though.

Next steps are now to refine the process to improve print quality, but I can finally say I have a working Delta 3D printer.

I'll post some videos of the event a bit later.
