Unfortunatley the 3d print of the Recaro seat on the RepRap wasn't successful. The machine was knocked 1/4 of the way through printing and stopped the machine. this doesn't matter too much because the material wasn't setting quite right for the model and the print may have been useless anyways. the Recaro seat model lends itself to being printed on the powder printer because of the complexity of the shape and need for more support material. i will be trying this print first thing tomorrow and hopefully have a powder print by the end of the day. The image below shows the 1/4 finished Recaro seat from the RepRap machine which serves as nothing more than a test piece for this project.
