Switched from PLA to ABS and came out with this! 3rd print I’ve ever made in ABS (and the first two were calibration prints). This is a TPS bracket for a Mazda 1.6 L Miata to use a Kia TPS. Turned out really nice! Maybe it’s my RB2 printer, but printing in ABS doesn’t seem to be as intimidating as I thought it would be. I didn’t have to do any tricks with bed adhesion. Just a good brim.

Take a look about https://youtu.be/4FkzLs7cLes?t=1m34s. Someone at the new Rigidbot want to make an announcement? ;) Calling +Heath Harper

Welcome to the family, Grey! I’ve been wanting to do a grey one just to have it look a little more classic.

Hopefully you can see the quality difference between these 2 prints. The green is from my old Prusa i3 printer and the black is my new ReliaBuild3D RB2. The Prusa seemed to have a fair amount of Z wobble, as you can see on the green print. I probably could have gone a few degrees colder on the black one to get the overhangs better. Kinda fun though! I fidget with these at my desk.

In preparation for Valentine’s Day, I’m starting to run some roses. I think they are coming out great! There are a few designs on Thingiverse that I think I’ll use to make my wife a bouquet with red, white, and pink roses. Maybe I could find some rose-scented essential oils or something and take it even further. ;)

Where can I obtain an LCD display for my Rigidbot? When I first got it I opted to forgo the optional LCD display, but now that it's been a few years I thought I'd like to go back and add one. Is "3d printer LCD display" a standard part at this point (for most printers), or does the Rigidbot require certain specs?

Cool lesson on how to add knurling to a project for 3d printing.

My son got jealous of the red boat I printed for my daughter, so I quickly did one in green for him. I’m amazed that it came out so great without support material. I have some pretty long overhangs. I might have to put this RB2 Reliabuild printer to the test and see how far of a bridge I can make without supports. +Heath Harper

Another good practical print! This thing will pay for itself in no time. ;)
Another practical use for my Reliabuild 3D printer. I had a plastic piece break on a tripod mount for my phone; but I knew what to do! Couldn’t find anything on Thingiverse for it, so I sketched up something quick in CAD and exported it to my RB2 printer. 100% infill to try and make the threaded shaft strong. Turned out great! Maybe I’ll post this on Thingiverse to fill in the gap. +Heath Harper

Latest prints for my Grandsons. Two bathtub boats from Thingiverse. They look good and float great. With a good infill they are quite stable in the water.

Printed on an awesome RB3 (ReliaBuild3D Regular) at 0.1mm layer height and 24% infill. No support material required. PLA from Vortex 3Dp.

I credit +Daniel Jackman with the inspiration to make these after seeing his post.

Can't even hope to keep up with him. :)
