Minus some massive sleep deprivation related flailing, MRRF2017 went off well. Drove the printer to the show directly from Tampa and arrived Saturday morning, where at one point I had to look up how to use software that I had written.

This time we brought along all the spare parts and the tools needed to fix just about anything, and of course, then everything worked perfectly.

Drew Fustini of Beagleboard.org was kind enough to share some media he had collected during the show related to the M2.

Chatting about the internals with a patron.

Basically the only time the top of the printer was open.

Wow, what an experience. So many innovative and passionate people gathered together in a single place.

The response to the printer was simply mind blowing.

We are still recovering from the intensity of the interest in this project, and we thank you for your patience while we get things sorted.

Lots more to say and do here, but it will have to wait for now.

I would like to say thanks to Coex for providing virtually all the filament we have used throughout the development of this printer. This print head has some pretty strict tolerances for filament, and they have never let me down.
