      UPDATE: 2/2/15

      So I decided to update the extruder to use the bulldog XL with the E3d_v6 hotend. Had a bit of trouble getting it up and running. This is the second print from it, so far so good. Printing at 100mm/s right now to debug. The spring tensioners in the x and y belt helped a lot, also the ball screws are the way to go. Absolutly no z banding!

      If you notice in the picture to the left of the print, I ran my extruder into the boro glass plate with a custom print surface, the print surface was tore up but the glass did not break!

      I also bought a meanwell power supply instead of a moded ATX power supply. It's totally worth the money. I had an ATX 500W power supply with 42A 12v line. I was only able to get 250W from it and not PWM on the heat bed. The Meanwell can handle it

      -It is almost complete, I posted some more pictures and a short clip showing differences in speed.
      -I just need to finish up the heat bed and implement my custom high current relay. Hopefully by this weekend it'll be printing.

      UPDATE: 1/22/15

      Everything is assembled and tested. Just need to transfer my hotend. I've posted some pics of the printer with some custom modifications and additions like the High current relay, LED light, Ball Screw mount, Sorbothane Isolation pads (http://www.amazon.com/Sorbothane-He...TF8&qid=1421938546&sr=8-7&keywords=sorbothane)
