ABS With Color Similar to Faberdashery's Architect's Stone??

Posted · ABS With Color Similar to Faberdashery's Architect's Stone??

I have fallen in love with Architect's Stone! I think the neutral grayness goes with a multitude of other shades of white very well. I printed out iRobertl's cable chain parts for the build plate cable using this material and it blends into the inner U2 perfectly.

However, since I've built an acrylic terrarium top for my U2 to print out ABS parts, I found it gets MUCH HOTTER inside than originally anticipated. My PLA-based Architect's Stone cable chain melts a little more every time I print ABS. :oops: The main part that screws into the back of the build plate gets the worst of the heat, pulling it directly off the Z plate. The smaller chain parts also get mushy just from the ambient temp in the enclosed print area.

Does anyone know of any ABS anywhere that has a color close to Architect's Stone? It's a cool, off white... very light gray-ish. I already have a standard 'white' ABS (plain white from iMaker.com) print of the chain, but it looks a tad yellowish compared to the rest of the bright white innards of the U2.

 

Thanks for any suggestions!

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
