Interesting new "foaming" PLA. May be useful for us RC model fliers, will have to see how it works out.

"At around 230C this material will start foaming, increasing its volume by nearly 3 times. Users can decrease material flow by 65% to achieve lightweight parts, or use the expanding properties to effectively reduce print time by using big layer heights or single extra thick perimeters."

Wow, that sounds really interesting! I wonder how tricky it is to get it properly dialed in so it looks and functions correctly?

Canon were, BUT 3D are better.

I wonder if I used that stuff on my lamp standard, would it stop it from blowing over… then I’d have a proper light light… :lol:
