After setting the printer up in my new location in Auckland, It wasn't even an hour into printing when the mainboard & CPU chip blew up, and a rather familiar "burnt ionized" smell originated from the printer. I remember vividly going through the expected range of emotions (denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance) not to forget the many expletives..
Rather frustrating as I had a number of designs in 1:24 scale ready to print, & a UP Mini that despite best efforts simply wasn't up to the task of a big print. I did however get more detailing done on the diesels in terms of decals & a few details & cab interior on the Di finished using the UP Mini so its still a useful printer to have while the Plus 2 is engaged with sections.
Procrastination ensued but eventually I made the quick visit or 2 to 3D Printing Systems in Pakuranga Heights, Auckland.
With many thanks to the great guys at 3D Printing Systems I've secured a replacement. Let the printing resume!
