    you know it looks a bit like a transformer - a head at the top would finish it off nicely.

    Just spotted the temp readout - very neat :-)

    to be fair, the biggest issue I've found in trying to use 3d printing as part of a business, is educating people on what it can do for them. Most businesses and indiviiduals have no idea.

    throw it away and get a prusa mini ;-)

    I pretty much never do anything to my printers after printing.
    I clear any filament off the printbed, but that's it.
