picture time!

Murphy's law! Aargh...

I found the murphy's law in effect today...

First of all I found out that the last 3 pages of my building manual were actually 3d moving pictures without any stuff...

Then I realised that I cut the drive belt at the wrong length...

And to get sad enough: I cant build the extruder, because the manual is missing :S

Building a reprap, day 2

Its 12pm in here, and the reprap is finally taking shape. I am tired but happy. All I need to do is connecting the axis, putting the extruder together and then i'm finished. Its putting the total building time on 19 hours...

I am taking pictures of the build per day, but since I am too tired to put any of them online right now, I will put them online later.

build has started

Hi everyone,

Too bad my camera didnt function so well today. Its 4 hours since I have begun, and I am at 1-07 of the build manual. Lots of parts to go trough, but its fun and I like it :)

I also found some weird stuff in the build manual, will tell Iain when I have time:

1-01: Left 3d does not fit part#
1-02: 10011 instead of 10010
1-03: 10008 instead of 10007, 10009 instead of 10008

And some parts dont have a name assigned, only a number. Oh well, luckely I know what M3x20 means. I will try to get this thing running before friday, I have got a good name for the reprap: Ice... Because its white. Only need some blue leds to match the fans.

D-day is coming...

I just got word from the person who is selling the repraps... They will ship it monday 16th march, so I will have it propably the 17th or 18th of march!

I am wondering what name you would give to the reprap? I have thought of Buzz (because of the sound a reprap can make), Spudd (name says all)...

Just leave a comment if you have a good name for it :)

Next post will be from a happy me, showing the goods.

Julius out.

EDIT: Due to delays they shipped it today... 18th of march. Waiting for the package to arrive!
