The Hell Ya Beller Fun with hot, pointy, sharp, and caustic stuff.

First (nearly) successful print on mendel

It's been a long haul, but I finally got a successful print out of my new mendel.  I think the Z axis is sticking every once in a while and it certainly needs much more tuning.  Even so, I'm thrilled.

The big things I wanted out of this build were a stepper driven extruder, 5D firmware, a Makergear hot-end and PLA printing.

Next steps involve a better build platform, debugging the z axis sticking and a bunch of testing.
