Pretty cool the orange color :). You're actually the only one who ordered an orange printer till so far...

You've done a nice job by the way. Everything neatly tucked away.

I made some mistakes that can be solved in a away.

I believe the extruder wires should be connected to a multiple clip so that the whole extruder can be easily dismantled from the x-axis. A future project for sure.

I also bucked so much wires in the Ramps box that I actually have to leave it open.

Thanks a lot for your comments.

@processware: Nicely done build, also the additions and tweaks to the design are cool! Did you design the engine yourself? Do you have some stl files available? I would love to print that one out. Not sure if you already do this, but couldn't see it on the pictures. I recommend to run the filament through a sponge or something which takes of the dust and dirt before it enters the hot-end. Increases service interval by at least a factor 3.
@kerstens: very neatly build printer! I see you have a glass plate on the alu plate, what are your experiences so far with it? Also a nice filament holder. I'm curious how it holds the filament roll. Is it simply a long bolt, or is there also a bearing in there?

Thank you for the compliment! :)
The glass plate is not working for me. It is already removed. :) The only advantage was that the bottom was smooth.
The filament holder has no extra bearing it's just a aluminium pipe.
