Before I left work on Friday, I started a 50+hr print of a prototype part I am working on.  I spent a lot of time updating all my settings since I was using MH Pro filaments and I really wanted this thing to be a good show piece.  So Monday morning I roll into work to find this:

After writing up a very long post in the HELP section, I started listing all my settings just in case someone noticed something out of place.  But no worries, I found the problem:

For some odd reason, I unchecked the retraction button.  A facepalm moment if ever there was one...

 

(the PVA is a bit old, hence the underextrusion you see towards the end of the print)

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • 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.
