Re: Plastic Manufacturing Methods

Another Filament Tub

Fil-Tub000.jpg I got the idea for this from THIS POST by Chein and decided this was a great idea. I made it more for the dust problem in my shop rather than humidity but it should solve both problems equally.

Re: Model Problem or Slicer Problem?

Thanks for the quick reply. I haven't printed it again yet... but that seemed to do the trick at least well enough where I could add in the supports manually. I still have a lot to learn about S3D thanks again for the tip.

Model Problem or Slicer Problem?

Let me first say I've only had my printer a week and don't know much. Anyway I was trying to print this bike from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:309158 and I ran into some issues that I don't know if it is a problem with the model or Simplify3D. The bike frame is in two halves and the right side p...

Re: Costume Props (Game of Thrones)

WOW :shock: Very impressive such amazing work .... I can hardly wait to get my printer. What do you use (program wise) to design something like that anyway?

Re: Our latest print is a Halo 4 Helmet.

Re: Recommendation of PLA filament brands

I have no experience yet with filaments or printing for that matter. But looking at my notes from all the research I've been doing on the M2 lately I've seen Octave Filament mentioned a few times as working well with the M2.

Re: Flexible filament on Kickstarter

I haven't bought a printer yet but this looks like it would be cool for printing tank treads like they show. I'll be keeping an eye on this one so when I do get a printer finally this will be on the list of things to try.
