    No. 3! I'm not afraid of assembling one.

    How does the ReKindle system fit in with the V1.0 firmware hack? It appears to me that if one has the working firmware hack, it is not necessary to have the ReKindle rewind chip programmer. How accurate is that assessment?

    That part is true. With the rekindle system you can change a cart that's at 0% to something usable, right now you can't use a cart that's hit 0. With luck we will be able to change a cart from an abs cart to a pla cart, or pla to abs.

    They have some other ideas on what may be possible also.

    Not too shabby, Fred. I am one of those but with 3 Cube-3's.
    I work with clients and I will leave the printer with them for long prints.
    Clients don't like hacked firmware on their machines specially on campus.
    Typically not good etiquette as many write code of their own.

    However, I can require clients to purchase the consumables... ...getting my drift?

    This keeps everything on the up and up with business intent and any other stuff that anyone can fling at me.
    And I take the waste cartridges and keep developing the printer I keep at home into a much better beast.

    And you must consider the other possibilities. <whisper on> Cartridge reset service? <whisper off>

    For me, I do want to reset cartridges to 99% from either low numbers or 100%.
    The green color assures me I can see the image on the screen (white sux!).

    And if a client complains about a half spent cartridge on a failed print...
    I think I can negotiate a reasonable settlement for both parties without giving up the store.

    I am more than happy to back these guys in principle alone.
    After all, they did deliver an excellent hack.

    The fact that this generosity did not even yield a meager return on the V1.0 effort makes the kick starter a great idea.

    Now to see the backers grow!

    Did I tickle your guilt, Fred

    It isn't easy to put down money like this. The return will be minimal.
    But I also have the luxury to say that anything that saves me non-billable hours in my normal course of a work day, it pays for itself in no-time.

    For those with one printer, how long to swap the firmware... and what's the risk level it looses it's mind?
    (I already went through that with someone else's printer; solved - session: 4 hours/2 people).

    And I am sure this is only a short-list. What else are you envisioning doing with your new magic wand?

    Plus 1: What do we do if 3DS decides do another FW release that coat-tails on an Ekocycle revision?

    Maybe it's at 0.4% and it's rounding down ☺

    Dont think so as the image shows the cart slashed with a bar.

    Put in a 100% and see if it prints.

    You ordered your rekindle, right Bo?
