12 hours into a print job …

This is one fault with the Type A Series 1, there’s no heated print bed. Yes, I now have everything I need to build my own, but still, on a machine of such high caliber to not have a heated print bed … I wonder.

I got tired of the filament coming off the spool in loops, so I put together a makeshift spool holder at about 2 hours into the print.

I hear that the newer version of the Series 1 has a re-designed spool holder So if you are just now considering a Series 1, this won’t be a problem for you.
