In 2013, the fabtotum was successfully funded in its indigogo: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/fabtotum-personal-fabricator. I was one of the early DIY backers. This is a multi function printer which is not only able to 3d print but also scan and mill.
The door engage button was too sensitive. Any sudden change in direction will most likely trigger this button which stops the machine. Currently, the solution is to disable this button by jamming the button with a piece of paper.

Hmm... Another very controversial update.. No updates on the development but indeed restarted the production.
"We apologies and hope to have news soon, we are eager as well to see results popping up." Regards, FABteam
You are the team that should work to get the results. The results wont appear just like magic. To those who are still with the project, good luck!

sudo apt-get install subversion svn checkout svn://svn.code.sf.net/p/pyserial/code/trunk pyserial-code cd pyserial-code cd pyserial python setup.py build sudo python setup.py install
Install Python related packages and clone the Octoprint devel source for the latest development.
cd ~ sudo apt-get install python-pip python-dev git git clone https://github.com/foosel/OctoPrint.git cd OctoPrint git pull git checkout devel sudo python setup.py install
After that, ./run to run the Octoprint server. It will be hosted in 0.0.0.0:5000 locally on the Cubietruck. You can also access it through other devices by replacing the 0.0.0.0 with the Cubietruck IP.
Additionally, you can also add webcam to stream the video of the print. Install the related packages and clone mjpg-streamer:
cd ~ sudo apt-get install subversion libjpeg8-dev imagemagick libav-tools cmake git clone https://github.com/jacksonliam/mjpg-streamer.git cd mjpg-streamer/mjpg-streamer-experimental make
To test out the video stream:
./mjpg_streamer -i "./input_uvc.so -y" -o "./output_http.so -w ./www"
You should be able to get the life feed from your USB webcam using port 8080 with the Cubietruck IP or 0.0.0.0 locally in Cubietruck.
