Re: Cracks appearing in the vat window

I use cast acrylic, which is more resistant than extruded, but ya crazing can be an issue with any acryilc. I would just use one of those eyeglass microfiber rags.

Re: Cracks appearing in the vat window

I can make windows with a cutout central portion. Have you cleaned the acrylic with anything, wiped it with anything liquid / solvent etc?

It's .8a

Re: Little RP2 - Print Height

- Are you using CW? Which version? - After slicing can you click on the view gcode and email me the contents, or put on google drive or box or something? - Also feel the stepper driver on the controller board with a finger during a print (ground yourself on something metal first, like a t-slot leg),...

Re: Little 2 kit availability?

Thanks for the interest, I don't have any plans to put new batches of kits in the webstore and my main focus at the moment is to support existing customers / provide help with the open source project. Inventory depletion / lack of available time / and increasing number of low cost lcd based printers...
