Tests with XYZ Cell
First Test of XYZ Cell using Fab@Home eelectronics to do FDM.
Second FDM Test.
Notice that the square moves up and right at the second pass.
Third FDM Test. Second pass still moving up and right.
However, drawing a simple square does not introduce any shift.
Tested printing with Epoxy. Same problem with the above tests.
Another Test with Epoxy. Epoxy solidifies well.
