It looks good from what I can see. How is it a failure?

It's supposed to be almost 600 mm tall - I think there was a power glitch due to a thunderstorm that caused the controller to kill the print.

It's still useful for something, just not what it was intended to be used for- a lamp.

I've had that happen a few times but never that long into a print. That's quite upsetting.
After the 3rd time I bought a refurbished UPS from the Micro Center. I calculated it should keep the printer running for 9 or 10 minutes more in the event of a power failure. It helped a couple of times for some momentary drop outs.

It turns out there's some other problem. I reran the print and this time is got to 343 mm and failed, reporting heater fault again. I'll tear into it this weekend and figure out what the real problem is.
