Hi

There is an interesting piece on the Makerbot Blog about a ToM Operator - Mark Durbin from the UK who has been designing and printing very intricate designs that push the print quality of ToM with MK6 Stepstruders to their best.

The full piece is here http://blog.makerbot.com/2011/03/30/we- ... d-kingdom/

"Recent MakerBot Operator Mark Durbin (MakeALot at Thingiverse) has been shaking up the Thingiverse scene with a tremendous number of models and prints uploaded since January of this year when he put together his MakerBot Thing-O-Matic kit. In particular, we have him to thank for a number of the now iconic braided and knotted vessels, statuettes, and bracelets that he has been coaxing out of OpenSCAD. His more intricate designs have become key models MakerBot Operators with Stepstruder MK6s use for challenging their stepper extruders to print multiple disconnected regions: reversal techniques for string-free printing to the max!"

We sincerely hope this helps clear the (bad) rumors that have been circulating on the internet regarding reliability and print quality on ToMs.
In particular the new MK6 Stepstruder has brought a lot of visible (as well as under the hood) improvements to print quality and overal performance of the machine.
All ToMs now ship with the MK6 Stepstruder included.

Regards
Pedro.
