In the JK? As you're about to leave for uwharrie?
Yep, I noticed it before my trip last week. Bought a gallon. I have been smelling antifreeze but couldnt figure out from where, had it at the dealer for the airbag recall 2 weeks ago and asked them to see what was up and let me know what it would be to fix it. They said it all looked good. Then that next week i noticed it was moist. Its not actually dripping, its just moist on the bottom.

Guess it's time to trade it in...
 
Since i have SolidWorks again it was time to get another 3D Printer...

My first machine i ever had (access to) was a Makerbot2x Shooting ABS (x2) that was if i recall about a $2500 Printer, Worked pretty good, enough to pay for itself in R&D projects. but it was never quite right.

Fast forward about 3 or 4 years, I picked up a Ender3 for the low low cost of $190 shipped. Unit arrived in decent foam packaging with 8/10 quality instructions, full tool set including nice set of cutters, and a putty knife to remove prints. Took me about a hour to assemble it. I tossed the included slicer software in the trash, fired up cura (w/default settings) with a floaty model (standard model used to stress test a printer) and in just under 2 hours a perfect 9/10 Floaty came off..

I cant believe just how well a less than $200 printer worked....This thing is gonna me a nice addition to my toolbox...Really the only thing i'm missing is a Laser and Plasma table, but i have access to both...
