  1. Version 1.0


    This model was made by Thingiverse user DutchMogul for the Make-A-Thon design challenge and no wonder it won because it's a LOVELY design. No support needed for the lid and look at that bridging! Very sexy. The hinge is also fully functional and fits comfortably enough that I doubt it will break any time soon. I also love the raised dots and pattern. A little bit of elephant's foot on the rim of the lid meant that it didn't want to close at first, but some work with a pen knife sorted that out. Similarly, the key did not want to fit into the lock at first but a little bit of effort on the loc
  2. Version 1.0


    My very first dual-colour print on the Ultimaker 3. I used some of our own PLA that I found propping up someone's monitor and it worked really nicely. The red is spoolWorks Phonebox Red and the black is spoolWorks Basic Black. The small layer height gave a lovely smooth effect but of course took bloody ages. The black parts are of a slightly lower quality than the red, and this is apparently because the black prefers to print at a slightly higher temperature. There is also a very small amount of nasty denting at the tip because i was a little rough when getting the print off the bed. And o
  3. Version 1.0


    Printed with recommended settings in British Racing Green Edge on an Ultimaker 3, as practice/testing. The detail is lovely and the joints rotate freely, but the two halves don't quite join correctly. As you can see they're not flush against each other. Not sure what's caused this as the settings seem to be otherwise spot-on, with only very minor catching inside the joints and angel-hair in the body. Might just glue the two halves together
  4. Scaffold is indeed PVA-based so warming your PVA on a bed should hopefully work for you. I also believe that Tom Sanladerer bakes his filament to dry it, which should work as long as the temperature is VERY low. It's genuinely quite a challenge to keep PVA dry enough to print reliably though (hence E3D's vacuum-sealing and desiccant), as moisture doesn't just mess up the filament melt, but also dissolves PVA and messes with its chemical structure.
  5. Version 1.0


    Here at E3D headquarters we get to play with a LOT of 3D printers. It's one of the perks of the job, but when we get a new printer we're still always very excited to see what it can do. When the Ultimaker3 came in we thought it deserved a more exciting stress test than old reliable benchy. Enter: These beautiful gems and their vertiginous overhangs. We printed in our own spoolWorks Edge filament in British Racing Green, which gave a beautiful metallic, semi-opaque satin finish.
