Hi Russell,

Toby is right.  In Melbourne, the best group to ask anything 3D printing (especially FOSS ones), is the CCHS.  And joining their mailing list is the way to go.

To do so, just go to CCHS web site: http://www.hackmelbourne.org/ - CCHS Lists, and subscribe to their Main List (a googlegroup).  Once done, you should be able to post your 3D printing related questions to it, and I'm sure should get lots of helpful tips in no time.  I recently did the same thing, subscribed to CCHS Main List so I could send them an invite to the SFD13.

Are you on the Melbourne Hackerspace mailing list?
They seem to have a lot of 3D printer people on there and I've seen
them troubleshooting various complex problems on the lists, so I
reckon they'd be helpful for you. You don't need to be a financial
member to join the list or chat on there.
