Taught a bunch of curious cub scouts about 3D printing tonight (gotta raise them up right, ya know?). I printed a 1 gram boat in 20 minutes. I wish I would have grabbed more pictures of it before a kid grabbed it off of the bed and ran away with it. Oh well....I can make another one.

Switched to E3DV6 and constantly fighting with some crazy stringing on it when using PLA ( pretty much the same with different brands ). In same time ABS and PETG is perfect....

Can you guys please share your cura file or some setting if you have dialed it in?

Hey guys, I have a bit of an issue... The brim to my prints always sticks too hard to the object. Any advice?

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.

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.
