Seriously...

Series 1-X... amazing piece of hardware.

That the Series 1 can be modded into it.. is equally amazing.

Thanks TAM!

Have you considered printing it again with a 45 degree chamfer on the lettering allowing you to avoid the need for any support material?

Looks great by the way!

The support was expected actually.
We actually pushed it in deeper to create more support which makes it easier to clean out (if that makes sense). It only took about an hour to clean it up properly (razor blade)

Beyond that we printed white lettering to go in those recess's so you can really see the marks from cleanup.

Ahh, I see! Great idea! Will they fit in there flush, or are they going to be raised?

Ha. I worked at the Mountain Winery on the Chateau Deck for almost 8 years. Never would I have imagined I would see and 3D printer there. Good times.
