First Daughter machine! built for Burnside High School. construction took two weeks of on and off building, somewhat larger than what I expected, though most of the time was spend re-doing things in an attempt to make the machine less "year nine-able".
This beast features a number of fancy parts. The RepRapPro cross brace, an innovation ive not seen commonly used though incredibly effective for both bracing the frame and eliminating any wobble. And my Y-axis motor mount (On Thingiverse) that I'm possibly over-proud of. Not quite incredibly effective, functional.
We used Sanguinololu on this machine, even made a lovely little box shown. Pretty tidy if I may say so myself, what with plugs, cable glands and a noticeable lack of MDF.
