Thank You to this month’s sponsors, contributors, and companies who didn’t try to shoot our UFO’s out of the sky for using their product in this month’s box.

The April 2019 UFO Mystery 3D Printing Box has landed! This month is themed for Easter! I want to thank Ashcan Comics Pub. for providing the comic book and Dan (@AlkeshOne) for designing the 3D Printable project parts.

Congrats to Nick for receiving the April 2019 Mothership Box!

The Mothership Box this month contained a 3D Printed Mothership Coin unique to the April 2019 Mothership Box. The Mothership Bonus item this month were 2 Rolls of Alien Ooze PLA from IC3D!

I wanted to go with soft colors for the April box and the Aqua had just the right hint of green!

Bonus Project!

Alien3D Water Fountain / Water Wall

April is known for its showers, and I thought a Water Fountain would be awesome. Not a lot of people like water and 3D Printing, but AlkeshOne has done an amazing job with not just a water fountain, but also a water wall! I really hope you all enjoy getting wet! UFO included a Water Pump to go along with the 3D Printed parts. The Alien Mascot is printed separately from Thingiverse, print at normal size with zero infil and 2 or 3 walls, then just cut a hole out of the bottom to fit around the water outpipe thinger.

      Thank you! This month might be a couple days late due to the box printer still not informing me that the order is being processed yet, but everything else is already on the way or already here and will be here in time!

  2. Wonder if anyone else is having issues getting the orange in the April box to stick to wham bam build serfice. Tryed it on 2 printers it just wont stick. All the others have worked fine good box sorry you had issues we all love the boxes here keep up the good work and thank you.

      I haven’t heard anything about sticking issues. I’m not sure how many people have a WHAM surface and the printer I have my WHAM plate on isn’t working at the moment =( I installed a buildtak sheet on the opposite side of the WHAM… might be useful to you to do as well due to variances in filaments.

      1. Cool thank you i have put a known good filament on now and it prints fine no idea why the orange wont stick. But there you go i have no other printers to test it on that dont have wham bam but my cr10 s5 but no room to set it up yet. Its no big deal just thought most everything stuck to it so i am guessing its probably defective in some way that only is effected on this new pex serfice.

  3. started using the filaments with the April box, the aqua printed really nice. Went to use the 3d passion peach, it is all brittle and has broken into at least 10 different pieces. This is coming from the sealed bag. Tried printing with the longest piece, that bdoke after about 12 layers. I gave up trying to print with thst, moved on to the tianse cerulean. This filament was even more brittle than the previous. Are these premium samples or stuff left over and exposed to humidity? not sure why they are so brittle when i just opened the sealed pack. As you can imagine, i am upset about this, i barely have a sample long enough for a 3d pen.

      I’m Sorry Bosco, I open the filament, spool it and instantly put them in bags with the silica… I will send you some extra samples of other brands. I honestly don’t know why some filaments get so brittle like that when they should be sealed =(
