    I've been off the forums for a while as my BB has been working well and also now that I have been a beta tester for the Glowforge I've been learning that world, so luckily we are resisting the famous nylon incident, well unfortunately I had the incident V2.0 last night. I was printing a medical device in nylon 910 and had to put a pause in the job to insert a UHF RFID tag in an inner cavity, and woke up to this: Sigh, of course it is the week before I pack it all up for my booth at MakerFaire NYC... Pretty sure this killed the carriage as I note the heat sink is cocked out of true so I image something broke, and of course the head won't heat up sight a MINTEMP error so I image the thermocoiuple is damaged in the blob?

    On the theme of failed prints that take out the printer, I recently came down to find this scene of carnage. I was trying to use support material in the second head and didn't have the offset properly calibrated.

    I took the opportunity to do a significant upgrade to the X carriages. More to follow! ;)

    I am assuming the "MINTEMP" means the thermocouple has failed in some way?
