"Hains" Prusa Mendel RepRap: Finished!

Houston, we have plastic.

Last night was the night for finishing up the wiring and plugging it all in. With a small complication in late hour, and a fairly major soldering crime that followed, I was final able to put the finishing touches on the machine and turn it on. It is now finished.

In the video you will see me pitch the segment to the main camera twice, then, panic as the extruder starts smoking, consult the community chat room who say that's normal the first time, then finally get some gooey mess to come out of the extruder, which they say is also normal for a first time extrusion. Then I finally toast the occasion with a sip of single malt scotch.
