    That's pretty awesome. OpenCV seems so awesome an I've wanted to use it for a long time, but haven't had the chance to sit down and learn it. It's amazing what you can do with it.

    Tom,
    I'm about to assemble my new Heatbed and I 'm curious how/where you located your thermsister. Did you locate it in the center? I bought a 110v silcone heater with the adhisive backing and will attach that to an aluminum plate. Did you still use clips to hold down the Ultiem or did you switch to some sort of epoxy to hold it down?

    My thermistor is bonded to the underside of the aluminum plate towards the edge. I have the Ultem sheet attached via bulldog clips all around the perimeter. I'll upload a pic later.

    What filament suppliers have you all had good luck with?

    I have been using black and orange Matterhackers ABS without issue. Last night I loaded up a roll of red from them and my nozzle clogged almost immediately...

    Thanks. I was a little skeptical of the ord and jet on Amazon. I might have to give it a shot.

    Do you notice much difference between the more expensive Lulzbot or Ultimachine stuff compared to jet or ord?

    I've gotten away from ultmachine and lulzbot completely because I find them to be a total waste of money at this point. I was pretty much using protoparadigm exclusively except for emergency orders of Jet or Ord from amazon when I was in pinch. You can't beat 2 day free shipping with prime. What I have been finding is that the Jet or Ord stuff actually prints really well and I can't tell the difference. I use an E3d hotend which requires pretty consistent diameter filament because there is not much room in the steel shaft for accommodating filament much greater than 3.1 or so mm, and I haven't experienced any jams with these suppliers as of yet. They are becoming my goto for standard colors but I still get my specialty colors from protoparadigm.

    Great. Thanks for the info. I will have to give them a try.

    I hope this jam up is just a fluke because I have a kilo of red and a kilo of pink waiting to be used... The other rolls of Matterhacker I have used were always in the 2.91mm diameter range. The red I tried last night was only 2.75mm. That makes me think the filament might have come from a different source.
