I greatly admired the ambitious concept behind this RP machine (one of the very first) and think that its main problem (besides some serious technical ones) was that it was just WAY ahead of its time. Look forward to seeing if you can get it back to working condition.

Here's a couple of videos we've taken so far of it. In both videos
the outer shell is taken off of it, so it's a little easier to see
inside the print area. The second video is pretty rough as it was
taken from a smart phone, but it shows some up close shots inside the
print area.

As I said, we got it moving and it honestly thinks its printing
despite not actually spraying any wax. Enjoy.

Sorry about the quality of the second one.
