Building a 3d printer...

Recently i've been building a 3d printer with my brother.
During the last few weeks we have been calibrating and learning the intricacies of it, and have now reached a point where we can produce quite nice prints in an acceptable time without too many failed attempts.
The first small project has already been completed and printed, and the second one is on the way... Interesting things ahead!
For anyone interested, the printer we have been building is a Prusa i3 Rework. The frame is laser-cut from a 1 cm thick piece of acrylic glass, which in hindsight might not have been the best of ideas as it gets quite wobbly at times. All other parts have been sourced from a bunch of different retailers, local and across the web.
