No, my mechs can't accept the new coinage (actually I think the one that is in that combo would accept the new toonie for some reason, but not the loonie) and I've never been able to get any info on how to do it. Coinco will do it but I think its expensive. edit: actually I know there is a jumper pi...

Re: Vending Machine

Looks like you guys have some vending machine woes so....how about some more? :P I'm trying to make more space in my garage and I have a NOT fully functioning combo machine that might be a better fit for a TW project. The snack top is removable and can operate independent of the bottom. It has slots...

Re: The Solidoodle

Quality is good enough for prototypes and stuff but not really for anything production. Main thing is to try and have as little support structure as possible as you never get as good a finish afterwards. We went with 1/8" borosilicate glass from mcmaster, a little pricey at $25 a piece, but works gr...

We run it almost all day and I even rigged up a webcam so I can view/remote control the SD during the night....

Re: The Solidoodle

Good info, thanks.

We're just looking to create one off prototypes. We had a small 3"x 2"x 2" object made with the University's Objet printer and they quoted us $180, dso dropping a grand or 2 of a printer doesn't seem like a bad idea.
