FinkrBots First Print [Video inside]

FinkrBots First Print [Video inside]

FinkrBot's first print was a calibration piece I grabbed of Thingiverse here and printed with PLA from Ultimachine.  I used the default settings in Slicer to generate my gcode from the STL file; I figured it would be a good point to start.  I did a quick check to make sure none of the defaults were too crazy.

Fingers crossed...PRINT.

There was a slight gap in the X and Y; the Z layer height was closer to 0.5mm; and the Y-axis slipped about 4cm at one point but overall I am very content with the quality of my first print.  I have seen some pretty bad ones posted around the RepRap forums.  Check out the pictures below and tell me what you think.
