Like so many others on the East Coast, I'm stuck in my apartment for the next day or two because of Hurricane Sandy.

Here is my preparedness kit... filament, beer, a leatherman, and a Replicator XL. Should be a fun few days.


1 - Design and print

2 - This thing is a joke, stay safe

3 - Pay attention to emergency officials and sites like http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2012/10/26/us/hurricane-sandy-map.html?hp

4 - ???

5 - Profit

What's the XL stand for in replicator XL?

Holy crap that's amazing!!! How do I miss this stuff?? Thank you!

Until the power goes out...

 All you need is a few car batteries and some dc to dc converters then bypass the power supply or another option is get one the those cheapo inverters, they are just not as efficient :) And you will be printing for days

 Golf Cart batteries are a smarter choice than car batteries, if you have time to plan ahead (Basically same as marine batteries, but far cheaper. And if used will do, I'm told golf courses sometimes sell "well used" ones before they're totally flat.)

Ok, maybe I didn't think this plan through completely.

 That's what the beer is for

Loss of power can be handled by more beer.

Be sure to print some of my shot glasses before the weather gets too bad ;)
