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.
There are planets and stars throughout space
But none compare to your friendly face
When I come to earth to abduct while you’re sleeping
Know that I chose you because cows aren’t for keeping
Wait that came out wrong, I’ll try to express what I‘m sayin’
Your earthen language is so hard to explain in
Saturn is a frozen waste where I lost the Cah keys
Venus is so hot, and Uranus... Oh mah cookies
Mercury, Mars, Jupiter and Neptune
I pass them all up and come straight for you
Because of all these planets I come to this globe
As there‘s no other species that I’d rather probe
"The box looks like a valentine’s card threw up all over the box... not saying it looks bad..." LOL... thanks Dan! Yeah, it’s Valentine’s month again... I know I know, I need to mix up the holidays a bit. next year we’ll celebrate my birthday =D This month’s project is a practical one, but also one with some “romantic” meaning behind it, which I’ll explain on the reveal page lol. I’m sorry this month is late again, and I can’t guarantee next month’s won’t be because the virus in China is still very active and slowing down shipping. Hope you all enjoy the box this month!

1 Subscriber each of the Projects & Accessories Only UFO and the Filaments Only UFO are randomly selected to receive a FULL UFO for the month.
SWAG & CODES
This month UFOs contained:
- Valentine's Oreos
- Discount codes from Alien3D, Nefilatek, Keen Village Plastics
UFO Subscribers & 1 Month you should see codes below, be sure you are signed in.
Please login to view codes if you received this months UFO.
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)
Pink - PLA
Extrusion Temp 180C to 210C
Bed Temp 0-60C
I liked the soft pinkness of this color, and I hadn't included Hatchbox in any previous UFOs so I went with it. It seems like a nice soft pink for a rose.
Green - Recycled HIPS
Extrusion Temp 230C to 250C
Bed Temp 90-115C
Print Speed 20-100/mms
I've been trying to include at least 1 non-basic PLA each month, and this month is another Recycled filament from a Canadian company.
HIPS is one of those filaments that can be dissolved using Limonene, and is often used as a support filament because of this. Printing it can be a little tricky as it prints a lot like ABS as it is recommended to print within an enclosure to prevent layer separation. My Ender 3 is not the best printer so it didn't come out the greatest, but is my only printer with an enclosure.

Keene Village Plastics
Raspberry Pearl - PLA
Extrusion Temp 195C to 215C
Bed Temp 0-60C
This color reminded me of a nice red wine, which hopefully you were able to celebrate Valentine's with a loved one while sipping on some sweet red wine... or if you're like me, sipped it alone lol.
This was a pre-release of an upcoming filament that will be available at Keene in March 2020. Keene has been coming out with a lot of cool colors, and will be in the next 2 UFOs as well.
Meteor Mined Copper Silk PLA
Extrusion Temp：190 – 220°C
Bed Temp：0 – 50°C
Print Speed：20 – 50mm/s
I thought we needed some chocolate and some jewelry in this month's UFO, and while copper may not sing out either of those, I think this is a really pretty filament.
Check out all of my hand picked non-basic filaments below!
6 Piece Needle File Set
Blutooth Boombox Speakers!
It's a classic, John Cusack standing outside the window holding a boom box playing 'In Your Eyes' from the movie Say Anything.
3D Printing Viking created a blutooth speaker a few months ago, and I'd been looking for a way to incorporate it into a project, this month was the month!
The UFOs included the following for the project:
- Blutooth amplifier board
- Power connector
- On/off switch
- 2 speakers (2" or 3", due to the China shipping, I wasn't able to get all of the same size at once)
READ ME - Ugh, can I just get a redo this month?... A couple subscribers pointed out that the power supplies are 24v and the amplifier board is 5v - I don't know how that happened, but DO NOT use them together. Just use the MicroUSB port for powering the Amplifier board. Existing subscribers should have the USB cables from past projects, new subscribers if you need one let me know and I'll send one out to you. I'll try to incorporate the power supply into a future project.
And now... the project files... the project files were being developed by 3D Printing Viking, however he had an emergency come up and was unable to finish the design...
UPDATE: STL Files are tested and available below.
There are multiple versions of the body and backplate.
- Solid no screws
- Split no screws
- Solid 2 inch speakers with M3x6 screw holes
- Split 2 inch speakers with M3x6 screw holes
- Solid 3 inch speakers with M3x6 screw holes
- Split 3 inch speakers with M3x6 screw holes
How do you know which one you need?
If you just want to glue the parts together, use: body, backplate
Have the 2 inch speakers (not in yellow envelopes) and want to screw everything in place? Use Body2InchScrews and BackPlateScrews
Have the 3 inch speakers (in yellow envelopes) and want to screw everything in place? Use Body3InchScrews and BackPlateScrews
Have a bed smaller than 200x200, use any of the above but with the SideA and SideB's
The amplifier has a single screw hole, M3x4 or shorter should work.
If anyone would like to download the Fusion360 files and work on their own modifications, it is linked to below as well.

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!
