It depends; some is, some is not. Some can be cold-worked to make it magnetic.

Single Outside Layer

I have been trying to build aircraft switch covers for a while now. I found trying to print lettering just does not look good enough, however, a laser engraver does a great job. That still leaves the problem of contrasting color in the lettering. I made some that look great by painting a cover made ...

I forgot to add one important step, when you set the toolhead offsets, Click the button to the left titled, "Apply toolhead offsets to G-code coordinates".

Re: Dual Extruder Alignment

If you are using S3D, go to the G-code tab and the Toolhead Offsets drop-down menu. Measure how far off your black is from the white and input those x-y numbers on Tool 1. It looks as if you will need several 0.010". It may take a few tries to get it perfect, but it can be done. Some people may even...

Since then, the "Views" function is broken, and I have only received an order from a previous customer. I c...
