(video is sped up 5x actual speed) This was our first successful test print. We had been having a lot of trouble with the black ABS plastic which came with the purchase of our Reprap, so after a lot of fiddling with everything I just bought a spool of PLA. To help the plastic grip onto the heated print bed, we added a few pieces of blue painter's tape. Higher temps on the extruder gave us the best extrusion, and by raising the Z axis by about a milimeter, we finally managed to get the first layer to stick, and the rest printed quite nicely.
