3D printing with Printrbot

Tried printing various objects with Printrbot.

Things to note:

- Instructions for Printrbot.
- PLA only.
- Cura for slicing. Newest version will not work, use version: 15.04 for Mac from here (instructions).
- Need Repetier-Host for extruding/intruding. (Instructions).
- Can use either Cura or Repetier for printing - I used Cura.

Test print: 3mm square


Resistance key cover: Didn't turn out too clean, but it works :)

Imperial Storm Mickey: did not change scale, so came out pretty clean.

Hachune Miku: (I had to scale this so didn't come out that clean)

Hatsune Miku: (I had to scale this one too, also the creator wrote you don't need support but print failed when I tried without the support so had to add them for this print)

This was part of "3D printer in a box" project :D

It was my first time using Cura. For simple prints, it's pretty intuitive :)
