Often that shift is caused by the print head catching on the object and the X or Y carriage slipping, make sure you've got nice tight X and Y belts and hopefully the shift will disappear :)

Just printed 3 as tests on our new T-O-M. Very nice. Yes, cleanup - there are thin filaments to clean but, easy with exacto and emery. A couple of minutes. Odd thing though - I used the one that is a sample in ReplicatorG and half way through the print the knot layers shift about 1-2mm for the entire object.

Nice, my MK6 arrived yesterday, I'm looking forward to getting it made and installed...

just load the STL, generate the GCode and print. Oh, and then clean up the print...

(wonder why the images took so long for thingiverse to process...)

Thanks. (I don't know, they aren't the normal 1024x768 and I tried a PNG first, when that didn't work I tried a JPG, then they both appeared together...)

So was it a really nice print or a really good clean-up job? :-P

This printed beautiful with the MK6. No clean up needed.

I had to spend a few minutes cleaning up the filament between the loops, only difficult because of the intricate shape :)
