It's brass swarf from your last weekend's work on your 60 year old lathe...

 

First I thought it could be removed PLA, but it doesn't look like it is printed.

Then I thought it had to do with the Olsson block too, and I recalled reading he received out of spec drilled nozzles so that was my guess too.. but I didn't know how to describe it.. and I figured my train of thought was probably to complex. But 'brass swarf'.. I think it is a pretty good call ;)

Judging by the anvil in the background and the red boxes that say something about steel, I'm going to go with "The stuff you get from milling brass, a bit like chippings / sawdust from woodworking"

Hi Swordriff

Looks to me like all the rubbish that hides under the print bed, but you only see it when a print is under way and you dare not remove at that time in case you upset the print. Then you forget about it till the next print is under way !

best regards

Stu

Well I am gonna guess that it is the result of a new filament you are beta testing and it does not work with the Stainless steel coupler you have been using.

What's the filament? Hairfill I am guessing.....you were printing a toupee for a cousin in Sandy Blonde color, but it keeps failing. That is the best result so far.... :)

Or its brass turnings from the lathe?

OK AND THE WINNER IS:

I am trying to press Best Answer, but brings me to Forbidden Page!

So until UM fixes that, no prize!

And there is a prize (2 nozzles each) for 2 more entrie, the funniest and most original.

All in my subjective estimate, of course!

I have a new competition coming up! Please help me fix the Best Answer button first!
