June 2022 UFO

Spread the love

 

48th Month! I can't believe I've been doing this for 4 years already, time flies! Definitely hasn't been the smoothest run so far, but dang what an accomplishment! Thank you all so much to new and long time subscribers, especially those who have stuck by me though the tough times.

My goal this year is to get a REAL sample making machine. I'm on version 6 of my DIY spooler (I'm not sure if v1 counts since it was a Masterspool that I spooled manually by hand lol), but there are a couple things that I just can't figure out to make it fully automated. The current version is a step up from the last version, but it still has its issues. I'm going to be making some tweaks to it the next couple weeks and see if I can get it just a bit more refined.

I'd also like to ask y'all for some help. I'm heading to ERRF 2022 in Maryland in October, and for it I'm doing a 977% scale OpenRC F1 Batmobile, I'm looking for some donations/sponsorships to help with the costs of everything if anyone would like to pitch in, it'd be much appreciated.

Congrats to Matt M.

Filament Samples

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)

Those looking for a sample spooler, MadMonkey designed this one and it's been my favorite so far https://www.printables.com/model/36621-expandable-sample-spool-holder

Fluorescent PLA

Soooo... as some may have seen on Twitter, the QA on the color for this filament wasn't the best as though the labels all say they're the same color, they came in a variety of shades.

Novamaker

20% Woodfill PLA

*Note: This needs to be dried right out of the box as this filament was very brittle. If by chance your sample breaks up during shipping, I'd be more than happy to send another sample. After samples were done, I used my Eibos dryer and had a roll in it for 4 hours and it definitely made it a lot less brittle. I just didn't have time to dry each roll individually in my single roll dryer.

Also, yes this is a super cheap filament off Amazon, but needed to cut a little cost due to the higher costs in next month's Anniversary box.

Print Temp: 190 - 220C

Bonus Accessory!

2 x Sliceworx Glue sticks

With the rise in popularity of flex beds, I know not a lot of you probably use glue stick on your bed anymore, but hear me out...

The other month with the Spacemouse it required a TPU print. So I printed the part out on my MK3 Smooth PEI flex plate and... after all the scraping and sanding I had to do to get the broken off pieces, I ruined one side of my plate *head desk*

I wish I had had a glue stick at that moment, and one day you may too lol

Sliceworx website still doesn't seem to be live, I've reached out to them to see if they need any help with that.
