Solidoodle 3 first print out of the box. Everything works but the machine and software will need adjustment.

Printing with the Solidoodle 3 right out of the box.

Lots of fine tuning still needed on both the hardware and software side. The machine must have been jarred during shipping because the bed was way off. I learned this the hard way when I accidentally hit the wrong button in pronterface and sent the extruder to the right causing a slight scratch in the kapton tape. Fortunately I was able to stop it in time. It has been a couple days since I opened and tested the machine. I need to order filament since the printer showed up earlier than I had originally anticipated. Then I will do a real test and tune.
