Jeremy finished one of the TiEnd Titanium Hot Ends late last night. I am trying to arrange a pick it up to show it at MRRF.

#MRRF was great. It totally exceeded all my expectations. SeeMeCNC did a great job hosting the event. There were printers all over the place. They tried to set a world record for printers running in the same room.

I talked with Josef Prusa a lot. I went to lunch with him, Johnny from Ultimachine and Zach from Inventables. There were many buildlog forum people at the event too. Everyone was very cool. I got all the "titans" of RepRap to sign my RepRap long board.

We are trying to get Prusa to visit PS1 this week before he flies home.

I brought my Delta. I did not plan to print with it because I had not reserved a table. I found a spot later in the day and popped off a few prints before my laptop battery died. There were a ton of Deltas there and I got some tips on using Kiss and Cura. Everyone kept commenting on how clean my delta looks. All I see are the imperfections :) They scolded for being too anal about it :D.
