First time ever printing with Ninjaflex:  Made this "test mesh" to see how it would work out:  Surprisingly well for my first shot.  Once thing I noticed is that it seems to behave a lot like nylon:  I'll need to add in more retraction for future prints to get rid of all the stringing.  Any other Ninjaflex tips?

Extruder drives can do flex and retractions, but they need to be modified or built from the ground up with flex in mind. I see way too many designs that appear to have had no thought for flex. Really, just a liner that is cut to give no room for buckling and no gaps between the drive and the hot end.

Tried out Simplify3D's "vase mode" for the first time where it throws down one shell in a contiguous corkscrew pattern.  Turned out pretty well.  Just under 6" tall, 3 hours to print.

This vase was created entirely to test [Simplify3D](http://www.simplify3d.com/)'s "vase mode" feature: It prints the walls as one contiguous corkscrew spiral. Turned out great. Modeled in Maya.

I think it is just wonderful!  I can hardly wait for my grandchildren to get into 3D printing - inspiring share! Thanks! (the snow falling effect was nice also)

We stumbled upon this bakery a few years back while on a drive: It goes without saying, amazing bread and friendly staff: Walking in and buying a steaming hot loaf: Breaking it open, it somehow makes it directly to my heart. I only wish I lived closer.
