Prusa i3 Mk3

New printer is great. Much better detail than the old Replicator (prints down to 50 microns). Speed is somewhat faster. Print bed is WAY better. The removable steel plate is much better than blue tape.

Also has features for filament run out and jam. Both I have tested and work well. Also has a feature to resume printing after a power failure. I have not tried that one yet.

Well worth the extra $$$ over the Replicator and better than the Lulzbot that cost twice as much. Now waiting for the multi material support option to come out...

Was not able to get slic3r to run in Ubuntu 14.04. Back to Cura for now, but will try again with slic3r. There is also a Raspberry Pi web print option that looks promising.
