What 2 years of weekly printing does!

Recommended Posts

Well time has finally come, its been over 2 years of weekly printing, many different colour changes, and lots of jams (and improper tools to fix those jams!)

oh what 2 years does. you never quite notice till you change it

I've had my UMO going since August 2013 and only replaced the nozzle last fall (jammed it up good).  I had bought the dual extruder upgrade so I had spare parts available!

I'm curious about picture where you printer looks encased in something...?

I work at a polyethylene foam factory, and have access to a HUGE XY plotter table, so designed and cut out of foam a sound insulation / sort of heat retention box.

cut from 28mm thick foam, then with 25mm foam black highligts (just swap out the white and black pieces for prettyness)
