interesting idea... video please.
How much force can the printer take?

Hi qharley,

You can find a video and some more info in this blogpost: http://www.vanalleswatontwerp.nl/ultimaker-automated-production/http://www.vanalleswatontwerp....

We will post a video soon. The printer can take a hit, but the idea is to find the perfect balance in stickyness for the first layer.

how reliable is this? and how do u configure the end gcode? is there a way to do it that will work for every sort of print? even large ones with large really stuck bases?

Hi Adam, we are printing on a hotbed so the idea is to configure the end g-code to wait for the bed temperature to cool down. This should in theory make it more reliable. However the m190 command does not wait for a temp to cool down, it only waits for a temp to warmup. So that's a firmware issue which needs to be solved.
