Whew - I'll be so glad when summer is over, it's HOT! lol - So usually I save a useless project for November lol, but this month's project is something I've wanted to make for a long time, and with the great guys over at Just Add Filament, this month's project is as useless as ever! I really hope you like it =)
For the accessory, I know it's not "3D Printing" related, but this month and the next 2 months accessories I think are pretty good companion accessories for the UFO, and probably things I should have done long ago haha, but better late then never =D
Slowly getting closer to being on time - so thank you all again for sticking it out with me!
Congrats to David Y.
for winning the August 2021 Mothership Box!
This month, David received a $100 gift card for Alien3D - aka I totally forgot to order something else this month lol. Hopefully you find it useful David!

Month 12 of 12
This marks the end of the first UFO Puzzle - and as most of you guessed early on, it's Jordon / MadMonkey's Monkey Pirate =P
For those who were able to collect all 12, I hope you enjoyed this. Do y'all think I should continue with a new puzzle? I'll also accept other fun ideas you may have!
All filament samples are at least 20 meters in length (actually more, I increased the length to eat up the extra filament being left behind on the rolls)
Knight's War Red - PLA
Nozzle: 190 - 220C
Bed: 0 - 60C
Since KWR is back in stock, I thought y'all would enjoy a sample! I really love this color of the blood red with the black glitter that NAK 3D came up with. I hope you like it!
Shiny Silk Silver Blue - PLA
Nozzle: 180 - 240C
Bed: 20 - 70C
Speed: 20 - 50mm/s
Purple - PLA+
Nozzle: 190 - 220C
Bed: 25 - 60C
Speed: 40 - 70mm/s
Vertigo Galaxy Black - PLA
Nozzle: 195 - 215C
Bed: 50 - 70C
I absolutely want to apologize for this filament this month. I'm not going to even link out to it. I've used Stronghero3D filament in the UFO previously and didn't have any issues with it, but this batch was absolutely terrible. In 38 months and 156 different sampled filaments, I've NEVER seen one with such terrible tollerance. On a single spool (and about 85% of the spools were similar) it ranged from 0.9 to 1.9 in the couple strands I tested on the spool. All I can say is that I am sorry, and if you choose to print with it... Good Luck!
I'll try to work it in the budget to provide an extra sample within the next few months.
Soldering Arm Helper Thinger
This year there has been a lot more soldering projects in the UFO, and I was thinking I really needed one of these lol, I am hoping you do to!
The Useless Box
As I mentioned above, I've wanted to make one of these for a long time but just never got around to it and all of the kits I saw were pretty complicated lol. But I think that this kit that Just Add Filament has come up with is awesome!
First I want to point out that I sourced all of the parts myself, so this isn't EXACTLY the kit that Just Add Filament sells, so I trust their kits are sourced with better standards lol. I however have a budget with the UFOs lol. But I did get their blessing and the links below go to their site!
Thank you again Nate and Keith!
All of the instructions from their site "should" match up with the parts included in the UFO:
- 1 x Gearmotor
- 2 x AA Battery Holder
- 1 x Switch, nut and washers
- 1 x Limit Switch
- Scrap Wires
- 7 x M3x10 bolts
- 7 x M3x4 Brass Inserts
Additionally, the great Fernando has created an Alien3D version of the printed parts with a tiny little surprise guy that I think is abso-flippin-adorable! LOL

I 'm trying out a new tripod setup this month to get a smoother camera and free up both hands. I hope to improve the angle as I go along but it gives me the ability to show more projects. My videos are quick one shot videos with no editing or cuts other then length cuts so If I fail you see it LOL. Please overlook the noises in the background due to road noise and printer noise, I am just a average joe working in a garage doing this for fun and to share knowledge like the rest of us and not in a studio.
Thanks for watching!
