Makerbot #453 : Back on track !

After weeks without using my printer, i'm back !
I started to print a mini-mendel ( Mini-Mendel Production Files by cyrozap) and it look good. I only printed the first sheet for now. It took about 80 minutes. I only have a small curve because the acrylic bent a little bit. I will post picture tonight...
My next step is to build my Heated bed. I will test it with the next Mendel parts.
I Also have to correct 2 littles problem on my bot : Z rods wobbling and X-Y vibrations.
I will take care of the vibration when modifying the build plate.
