Printed for several hours today using the thin walled teflon tube I mentioned above. It definitely deforms a little more than the normal tube, and I had to print a thicker bowden clamp (blue piece) in order to prevent slipping (because the teeth of the bowden gripper don't dig in as much).... but once that problem was worked out it seems to be going great. Maybe retraction will be a little bit less responsive, maybe rapid changes in extrusion rate will be a little less responsive - but we'll see.

Did several prints in the ~3.0 Taulman 645 Nylon without issue, which was previously clogging due to thickness variationin my stock machine and also on one with the E3D hotend. (I should also mention that I reamed out my entire hotend with a 3.4mm drillbit as well.)

    • 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.
