Got an Ultimaker Control panel

Still some time before the ultrimaker workshop starts on the 21 of October. Meanwhile I had the change of inspecting @ToonNelissen's Ultimaker on the 2nd Arduino-jam. Among some printed upgrades, he also had the Ultimaker Control panel. With this tool, you can start printing without the need to hookup the printer to your computer. The advantage of that is, your computer doesn't have to stay on, or isn't occupied with feeding the Gcode into the printer.

That looked very handy to me, so I ordered one right away. I don't have the ultimaker itself yet, but I'm already able to control it. ;-)
So today I got a package ... Yep the Ultipanel ready for assembling. Got right to it, and voila ... finished. Oh, I need some PLA too. I'm not going to buy PLA at the Ultimaker shop (to expensive), but at some other online shop. I'll fill you in, later on.
