Off kilter printing

by SavageRealm

So I finally got my Replicator2 up and running consistently (that's a tale for a keg and a plate of nachos) and it gave me one good print yesterday, and now it seems to want to do its own thing and go off in abstract art land. Tower of Pisa prints are not what I need for my projects.

Should I slow the print down more than I already have or is there something else wonky with this ... lovely ... printer of mine? (shapes are two different models, but they all seem to enjoy going sideways on me)

BC Technological Solutions build plates

by Selphb

Wanted to do a little poll. How many of group members have a glass build plate upgrade from BC Technological Solutions? I am getting low on build plates and the guy is out of business so trying to figure out an option. I have a CNC so if i am going to make my self some i wanted to see if anyone is interested.
