    UM2GO Nozzle Question

    Excellent question and excellent thread. It was me who liked all the answers. I love this forum...helps me in my job a lot. I'll be linking someone to this thread...hopefully he'll be part of the Ultimaker community soon.

    Acetone Finishing on PLA

    You met with Charles? I also met him last year in June, pretty cool guy! And I like what he is doing with his extruder. I have one, haven't had the opportunity to try it but using silicones I can imagine one could make some pretty handy things. The feeding process took quite some time to get started, but you know.. good things come to those who wait Yes that is the guy, top guy!! And haha yeah the purge can take a while. He said it had a few tweaks that needed making, and it is at a rather experimental stage, but he'd had some good prints from it. I'll get some pictures up.

    Acetone Finishing on PLA

    Ah right fair point. Yeah he said the icing is good, but some of the silicone stuff he produced was impressive. I was thinking you said about the silicone molds. But yeah I see your point.

    Cloak What do you know about the Structur3d Tower? It's a paste extruder you attach to the Ultimaker. Silicones, clay, polyurethane I'm sure got mentioned. I sat with the guy who pioneered it yesterday for a good few hours - very smart guy in his field which is material sciences - I'm sure you'd have a good conversation with him. Worth a look at least for you I reckon. Would like to hear your thoughts on it? http://www.structur3d.io/#discov3ry

    Episode III Tie fighter quadcopter

    Wow was it two weeks ago that we spoke? Christ on a bike where did that time go. This project looks better than it sounded on the phone!!! Just to be walking down the street and hear the "banshee" noises of the Tie Fighter would be something to behold. And if you could get it ready for the Rogue 1 release? Unlikely, I bet, but the gauntlet is set! Great start to your community career 4558, I'll look forward to your posts. You've met Sander and some of the other mods I mentioned. Here is cloakfiend also. Had me crying (with laughter) within seconds of finding the thread. https://ultimaker.com/en/community/10412-acetone-finishing-on-pla?page=17#unread

    Thanks to all for the replies, think the customer is going down the mould route, so we'll see from here.

    Machinable wax

    I tried a print with machinable wax and it came out ........................ different. [/media] Wish I'd have come here first, but thought I'd try my own settings. I too couldn't print with it below about 180C so to have that g-code solution is pretty awesome. Although me and g-code don't get on all the time. Will look in to the m320 as well, thanks a lot.

    Acetone Finishing on PLA

    This is a busy thread, hope you can help me, I have received an enquiry from someone saying "What precisely we are looking for, is a 3D Printer which can print in a material such as, or closely resembling, paper-pulp, with a result which resembles the material and texture of the 'egg-box'." Can anyone help?
