There’s some healthy skepticism out there suggesting that the either the Beast requires support or won’t print at all on an FDM printer. I’ve been wanting to do some timelapse photography for a while, so this was a perfect opportunity to dig out an old webcam and show that si, se puede.
This is printing on a Replicator 1 with factory firmware. I had some weird webcam software issues so I ended up taking timed screenshots, which turned out to be handy because Replicator G’s “DONE” dialog got caught in the final frames.
You’ll see my hand flicker in there for a frame or two; I’m removing a piece of filament ramen leftover from the extruder clearing action. Didn’t want this model to get touched by His Noodly Appendage.
About 52 minutes, this print.
