First Makerbot Build

I finally got the last bits put together and was able to actually build something.   This is a simple pencil box.  The holes were originally put in to accommodate some magnets but I scaled the whole thing up and now the holes are too big.  No problem.  I’ll just print a couple bushings to drop in and hold the magnets.  The printer is working o.k but has some chatter in the Y axis that I need to track down.  The Z axis has bound up a couple times near the top of the travel as well.

I’ve got plans to build some kind of spool to hold the ABS plastic so I don’t have to manage it by hand.
