Hacking the School 3D Printer to Save Money

Since taking responsibility for running the 3D printer at school I've been trying to figure out how to cut the costs on the ridiculously expensive filament cartridges that Stratasys sells for $260 a piece, and thanks to the fine work of the people at Have Blue and Gnurds a coworker and I were able to hack the printer cartridges so they could be refilled with generic 1.75mm ABS plastic filament, dropping the cost from $260/Kg to $30/Kg. Now that printing with the 3D printer is affordable there's all sorts of projects that are waiting to happen...
