z-corp printing again

I worked on the Z-corp printer last weekend. It had been broken down since hosting Milwaukee's first 3D printing meet-up. The belt had slipped off again, due to the tensioner (idler) being out of adjustment. I fixed this and got it moving again, but then the cartridge was messed up. I made a new one from one of the extra Canon cartridges I had bought for the DCRL. I printed some pieces for Chad as a test to start working the ink out of the cartridge. I'm glad to see that things are now working well. Need to hook up the color system now.

Yes, color! There's a number of people I've pointed your way (Chris@S67 among them) who are interested in hacking monochrome Z402 machines into color, so I'm sure they'll be interested in your progress.
