11 layers (2.5mm) into the z axis and it's looking okay so far.
Only has to do another 374 layers without any glitches.
if this comes out, I'm gonna be hard pressed not to load up the spool of maroon ABS I have in waiting
first of eight centimeters and we're doin' fine
6.01cm of 8.23cm total
last 80 layers coming up and this thing is still standing!
2 hours 45 minutes so far, with an estimated 44 minutes remaining
Not perfect, but a great first pass!
and with that, I am going to allow myself to remember that I'm actually sick and nursing a cold and get myself back into bed.
@djsundog Agh, sorry, I guess my first glimpse of the base printing was right and it wasn't just a camera trick. Looks like it's pretty good modulo base adhesion making the bottom curl up. People will recommend tape or glue, but personally I just make the raft wider.
