Selling my Mendel for $1

She has done great, she printed for 14 hours straight at Posscon, did a 18 hour straight print for a 1 shot replication, and did another in smaller chunks till I had the bed level enough for the 1 shot print.  She has copied herself twice, printed a ton of odds and ends to test designs, and now it's time for her to go out into the world.  I wanted to be fair, so I posted her for $1.  Let the market do what it will.  I will do anything I can to help the person that get's her have a good experience with it.  Here is the link.

I really hope this goes to a good home, with someone who will print with her 24/7.  It's a heck of a machine.  God I am a little teary over this.

BTW as with all my sells, the proceeds for this just goes to make more Mendels.  I want everyone in the world to have these things, best invention ever.

I thought I had done something pretty cool

My 1st time printing with my Prusa Mendel in Starbucks.  I was disappointed, no one even noticed.

Come to find out Rick over at Makergear likes printing in Panera Bread.

The girl sitting in front of me never even turned around for a 30 minute print... disappointing..

I mean I know your Mac Book Air is cool and all, but a RepRap doesn't even score a turn around?

So where have you printed for the fun of it (demo's don't count, just random printing)?
