Thanks for the kind words! The main purpose was to bring the printer to MRRF so I spent a lot of time hiding wires and such to make it look nice. Plus it was just fun to add all the little design features and since its 3D printed it doesn’t cost any more money to do so.
I'm not sure what the longevity of the bearing will be. I can say that I have at least a couple hundred hours on it and I don't see any wear on the bearing rails. You are right, since it is PLA I would be carefully where I store it.
