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!)

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)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
