Alright, enough drama. Let's get back to what where here for. Makerbotting.
My Replicator has been sitting quite for most of this week because the fan was getting too noisy. Others on the Makerbot forum have said the fan just needs a little oil, tho I've been warned that's a temporary fix and the fan will eventually need to be replaced. But I also want to take the opportunity to mod the fan in preparation for enclosing the build area. The idea is that the way the fan is positioned now it draws air in from the body to cool the electronics but I am working on making that air hot, so instead I should be drawing air from outside the case instead. This is the first major mod I'll have done and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't a bit apprehensive.
Now on to the enclosure before the cold of winter threatens my print quality.
