UM2 Exposure on BBC

I just caught the end of a BBC tech report, some guy talking about 3D printing. I stopped and watched because he was demonstrating an Ultimaker 2, seemed like nice exposure for my chosen printer.

"Just create your design, copy it to sdcard and print it out. Simple as that", says our enthusiastic young presenter. Skit ends with camera briefly glimpsing at 1cm hockey puck like shape currently being printed... underextruding like crazy and in the process of lifting off the bed. Simple as that eh? :-)

    Don't get me wrong: we all make a mess of our first prints, but I'd have thought they would get it right before going on air - and I found it amusing to think of the conversations that must have taken place right after the camera was switched off! :smile:

    (I'm assuming they tried to print way too fast in order to get something for the camera).

    I think journalists just want something moving for the camera. Look at

    of the TCT show. At 1.05 you can see a nice example of air printing. Presumably the HEPA filter works by inhibiting filament flow :rolleyes:
