    Build video of Cupcake CNC 3d printer.
    Been planning to do a time lapse build video for a long time and finally I got the perfect subject.
    Interval times varied from 10s to 30s. On a builds long as this, I found the 30s was the minimum.

    Little info on the printer:
    Uses 3mm ABS/HDPE/PLA plastic wire as print material.
    Extrudes 0.4mm thin wire.
    Can print nearly anything in 100mm x 100mm x 130mm area.

    Modifications:
    Paints used. Glossy black, Glossy white and fluorescent yellow.
    300mm UV tubes
    2.5mm red glow wire.

    Cameras:
    Filmed with Canon Ixus70 & 700 with CHDK installed. (Time lapse & motion detect -scripts)
