Octave is offering a $150 Visa gift card (use it for anything) on Afinia sales through the end of the year. Yes, pp3dp firmware runs on the Afinia, it is essentially identical to the Up!; the differences are in packaging, accessories, and support.

I'm still a little annoyed at the way they teased a black friday and cyber monday sale on their facebook, but they never actually had a sale. I missed out on other sales because I was saving money for whatever special they were going to run specifically on those days that they never actually did.
Ok, all griping aside they are still nice printers, lol. What I want to know, if anyone else knows, Can I install future pp3dp firmware updates/ROMS on the Afinia and will the software for pp3dp run the Afinia? I'm looking through the Afinia site, and I dont see any forums, and little in the way of support in general. As far as I can tell this forum is the only one out there for the Up! and the Mini.
Thanks Julia, I was aware of the $150 gift card. Their facebook mentioned specific black friday and cyber monday deals. Thats what threw me off because the $150 deal is a general holiday deal. Knowing it will run the PP3DP firmwares makes me happy though. I'll probably get one then
Oh, and thanks for the quick reply.
Getting back on track of the original discussion. I have really wanted to buy this edition of Make Magazine, but none of the stores in my town carry it. I've been wanting to buy a second printer which is why I wanted to read it. My neighboring town should have it but its an hour drive and I'm actually tempted to make an excuse to drive over just to get the magazine, lol. But then I think, well I've already got the winner, maybe I should just get it again, lol.
