I am into Porter's this month -- and just finished a couple.

I had the same reaction the first time I saw someone say they were using IPA then realized there were 2 kinds.
Laser: was an A3 2.0w TTL L6 Z axis now 2'x3'
          OpenBuilds ACRO 510 w/ 2.0W TTL laser Cohesion Mini Z axis Homing switches
          K40 Cohesion Mini 60W LightObject LPS
          80W Red-Black 500x700

cool is simply a subjective state of mind

... So I'm still down and about to go out of town for a week :(  My spare heater cartridge hasnt shipped from prusa yet so I got a knock off spare from amazon (should work 12 v 40w) which will be here Sunday, which is when I leave.  Can I bring a prusa on a plane? I might have to buy it its own seat.  I have so many things I want to print and I got a bunch of new filament in to try!!!!

Nothing on a 3d printer that is prohibited. You might get lucky and find a TSA person who actually knows what it is.

I don't think TSA would let it on the plane. Probably in checked baggage. Of course you might as well pack it as a kit as they will do their best to convert it back to kit form! And FOR THE LOVE OF GOD do not put FRAGILE on the box. That makes them go to extra effort, then they play soccer with it at every loading!

yay my mk2s is prusaing again.  New heater block, new heater cartridge, new thermistor cartridge, auto tune pid and it works like it did the first week!  Actually better.  I cleaned the bed with an acetone wipe from frys and now the bed adhesion is unreal.
