Cloud load balancer snafu leads to 3D printer user printing on a stranger's kit

OK, at least that "cloud" system in place is there for a reason.

I was half expecting to find out that many 3D printers have strict DRM that connect to the vendors restriction servers before they allow the machine to function. That way when the company goes out of business, they can ensure no-one can benefit from the hardware any longer.

Cautiously going to say, glad that isn't the case :)
