aofb is on a distinguished road

I've been building and ironing the kinks out of my 3d printer for the last 18mths....long story, too much to do. Mines a Reprap Kossel clone, delta geometry thing.

Found the following...

1.There are few good integrated workflow apps that go from drawing to sliced gcode and machine control but I find SketchUp and pronterface seem to do an ok job.
2.Setting up and calibration can be a pain
3. Extrude settings ditto particularly as it changes per material
4. ABS results are appalling to non existent without a heated bed.

Good luck!
