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)

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
