Bought a Chinese UP! printer

Got my 3D Up! printer running.  There was some drama with installing drivers.  The manual instructions were written for Windows XP and I was using Windows 7.  Slightly different way of doing things which I managed to puzzle out.

Tested the extruder.  It prints at 270 C.  Now I understand why they designed the extruder head the way that they did.  You'd be hard pressed to print at that temperature with a Reprap extruder head.
