    PLA reacting to heat much more quickly.. !

    I don't think I've ever had a clog before... maybe in the early days? ... of course, always printing with a .6 or larger nozzle helps avoid them a bit more than .4 :)

    PLA reacting to heat much more quickly.. !

    I've definitely had a wide degree of experience with different manufacturers and batches of PLA! I think this is probably why Prusa went to so much trouble with their filament to track and supply all the details about each and every roll! Fortunately, 99% of the stuff I print doesn't require a...

    3D Modeling Tutorial - OnShape

    Huh, really? I think I've pretty much been with only two (others I've tested for a day or two), but I did Tinkercad for about 3-4 years, and then about a year or so ago started using OnShape. ... of course, maybe you only have two hats? LOL! Wait, am I reading this right? That you think that...

    3D Modeling Tutorial - OnShape

    I'm a HUGE fan of the TeachingTech youtuber, and I really enjoy designing with OnShape. He's done a BRILLIANT job with his tutorial series that I've been following along with: Here's the 2nd video in the series where he's creating basic parts. I'm at video 4 and have learned some really...

    HELP! Best Color Laser Printer For Graphic Arts

    Spam definitely comes in waves and it's a constant cat/mouse battle to keep spammers at bay, but not blocking legit users. We have a lot of great systems in place that keep out about 99% of the attempts at spam. It's actually quite amazing to see the backend logs that show how many people (and...

    For Impatient 3D Printing Peeps Like Me - Volcano !!

    Yup, I'm impatient, like to print fast, and am usually fine trading off quality for speed. That being the case, this hack is RIGHT up my alley! I just need to buy a few 0.8 volcano nozzles and I should be good to go! (oh, and print a new extended fan duct)

    So Tempting - Bambu Lab X1 3D Printer

    While tempting, a few things held me back: I'd wait for the 2nd iteration / version (maybe a bit after the kickstarter has completed / shipped) for the software to be fully fleshed-out and bugs squished. While it does a lot of cool automated stuff... there are some things I like to do manually...

    BIG 3D PRINTER !!! Building a Large Format 3D Printer

    I've been following this guy's AMAZING build, and it finally came together in the video below. I don't see any cooling... and I'm curious how this works with such HUGE thick lines of hot plastic that probably take forever to solidify.

    So Tempting - Bambu Lab X1 3D Printer

    Ugh, I'm just not patient enough to watch any live-streams. I'm a fan of the shorter curated (script, editing, etc.) videos. One of my FAV 3D youtube peeps did this great review. He has a VERY strict policy on stuff that is sent to him for reviews, and does a good job:

    A Few 3D Reprints...

    Same.Same. :) Vast majority of my prints I do are 3 hours or less (most are only an hour or less), and anything 10 hours or under, I'll just print during the day since I can keep an eye on it in my office. If the situation arises where I have a print that is 10+ hours, I might do an overnight...
