  1. I recommend a 3d printer pen to seal PLA, however I haven't found one that can work with 3.0 mm filament. You can also heat friction weld PLA with a good multitool. CA glue doesn't work. For improving mechanical bonds on larger parts (I do robot parts) you can drill holes and friction fit simple wooden dowels, this is very strong.
  2. This is now happening with my Ultimaker Original after 3 years of use. I suspect a problem with the pulleys so I will keep you updated.
  3. MEK, methyl ethyl ketone, is another solvent for PLA. Has anyone tried to use that for part smoothening?
  4. Cura 2.3 works great, and dual extrusion works after installing new firmware and the Arduino drivers. However I can't seem to alter the machine settings to enable a default offset for the dual extruder. So I am adjusting this feature manually. More importantly, there are long pauses (up to 10 minutes!) when changing between print heads. And at the start of some layers, there is an almost duplicate G0 code, which may or may not have to do with it. Does anyone know what to do with this?
  5. Well there is Cx5 sculptable filament by Adam Beane. And there is instamorph (PCL) filament by eSun: http://www.esun3d.net/Products/eMorph That melts at 80-110C.
  6. Een vrij korte afstand, zo'n 0.10mm, werkt in mijn bevinding het beste. Er is nu ook een tool op Kickstarter waarmee je het printbed exact kan calibreren:

  8. The webshop 3Dfilamenten.nl has a good range of PLA homebrand filaments for a very affordable price; about 20 EUR / kg. So I am interested in obtaining a range of these filaments. The reviews I read on their site are so far so good, though I am wondering if anyone here has already used these filaments. There can always be minor issues such as many of the EUmakers filaments being too rough to smoothly pass through the Bowden. I hope to hear from you soon, thanks! Ralph

    Owl

    Version 1.0

    899 downloads

    The owl was printed with Lay-FOMM 40, which gives it a nice pearlesque finish, so also useful for visual models in case you want to keep the filament rigid.

    Finished with Chrome spray paint, this print looks wonderful.
