Filament Samples

FilamentOne

PLA Pro Select - Glint Red

Extrusion Temp: 195 to 225C
Bed Temp: 40-60C

So the Glint Red was selected for it's red color for Valentine's but I was pleasantly surprised when it arrived because it kinda looked more like a copper/brown, which I thought could represent Chocolate!

Repkord / 3D Pink Mafia

Boss Pink - Translucent PLA

Extrusion Temp: 215 to 230C
Bed Temp: 0-60C

I was happy to hear that Repkord was coming out with a pink for the 3D Pink Mafia, so when I found out about it last month, I just HAD to include it into the box this month!

Plas3D

Green PLA

Extrusion Temp: 190 to 220C
Bed Temp: 0-60C

You can't have flowers without stems! This green was selected for its bright color that I thought would look great for Valentine's projects working with green stems and leaves... like DasMia's Rose and Lilly!

Fiberlogy from Wolfworks3D

Burgundy or Red or Pink - Fiberflex 40D

Extrusion Temp: 200 to 220C
Bed Temp: 50 - 70C
Speed up to 45mm/s for direct drive or 15-30mm/s Bowden

Wolfworks3D is the carrier for Fiberlogy in the US. It's been a while since we had a special filament, and the flexible filament I thought would be awesome. In addition, it came in a variety of colors to compliment the Valentine's theme!

Bonus Accessory!

Adjustable T-Handle Ratchet Metric Tapping Thread Machinist Tool Set 5pcs - M3-M8 Machine Screw

As 3D Printers, there are often times that we need to design holes for parts to screw together. Sometimes the design isn’t always the best fit for the screws. With this tapping set, you should be able to get the right sized hole every time without worrying about designing the perfect holes into your model!

The set that came in the UFO has upgraded harder bits, but you can find a similar set on Amazon (referral link)

Bonus Project!

LED Color Changing Lithophane Box

Download Box Files

The UFO contained a 30 LED Light, remote controlled USB powered color changing light set. (2 boxes received 60 LED and the trifold said 60 LED as I believed I was getting 60 LED strands when I ordered)

I created a lithophane lightbox in December for a friend of mine who is a twitch streamer (xb0shi3x), and I thought it would be a pretty awesome thing to create for a loved one as a Valentine's present.

The box I've designed is for a 150 x 116 x 4mm 3D Printed Lithophane photo. I used this Image to Lithophane generator to create it using a 1966 x 2538px photo that I made into a greyscale image in photoshop.

Lithophanes should be printed in a white, no more than 4 to 5mm thick, and 100% infill.

The box itself is a top and bottom. The LED strand I secured to the back of the top part with 2 part epoxy, curving it back and forth like a snake from the left side to the right side, keeping the lights facing forward and held in place with clamps while the epoxy dried.

Then the end should fit into the bottom. There is a rectangle in the front of the bottom in which I secured the IR receiver so that it is clearly visible so that the remote control can work with it. Then the USB cord fits out of the slot in the back.

I then used 3D Gloop to secure the top and bottom parts together.

I did not take enough pictured when creating the first one, so I will build another if need be to better walk you through the build process.

3D Printed Rose and Lily by DasMia

When DasMia released the project for the 3D Printed Rose, I thought it was absolutely AMAZING! So I asked her if I could link out to it in this month's reveal post... she then told me she was working on a 2nd flower as well, which opens up and reveals a small container that can hold a Valentine's present like a ring! So I'd like everyone to please check out DasMia's Rose and Lily!
