RepRap Calibration

Today I spent some time calibrating my RepRap, its was an interesting experience.  The computer that I use to run Pronterface and my RepRap is my retired Car-Puter which controlled the sound in my Ford Expedition for years.  Now the computer seems very underpowered with its Via 1ghz integrated motherboard.  Most of the calibration parts were no problem, but when Skeining more complicated models,  Skeinforge tends to eat up all of my computer's cpu and memory resources and  then crash.  As soon as I figure out how to get everything run from my MBP, I will.  I've been having problems with Python on my Mac.  Oh well, I'll devote a few more Saturdays to it.  Check out these pictures and the short video of my machine printing a calibration block.

The thin wall test took a few tries



anyone else like Bassnectar?


The 20mm block took a few tries also, this weird raft actually worked well.
