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

Recommended Posts

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!

    • "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.
