March 2020 UFO Contents


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.


What a couple months it has been! I hope each and every one of you is staying safe and healthy through the pandemic. It’s definitely been crazy times, and for those who have stuck around with me, I truly appreciate it. If anyone did not receive the update email from me, please let me know if you’d like to be added to the email list for any future subscriber only information. I am absolutely trying to stay as transparent as possible with everyone.

My goal with the “project” this month, since I had to find something that didn’t require me to rely on another companys shipping and be able to acquire enough of them, was to cutely decorate your printer for St. Patrick’s Day *facepam* well I definitely didn’t make that date... but hopefully you find use for it. Maybe if you have kids they’ll find the item enjoyable =)

The accessory though I’m sure everyone can find some use for, I know I have about 5 of them as I keep losing them and getting more just to find the previous one again lol.

As always, any feedback anyone has, feel free to reach out. The next few months “should” run a bit more smoothly. *raises fists at shipping faeries* ~Josh

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)


Spearmint - Recycled PETG
Extrusion Temp 225C to 245C
Bed Temp 70C

GreenGate kicks off the first green color this month, I am already a fan of PETG and this prints really easily and I like the fact that it's recycled.

Keene Village Plastics

Bright Gold - PLA

Extrusion Temp 195C to 215C
Bed Temp 60C

You can't have St. Patrick's Day without some gold! One thing I like about the KVP sparkle filament is that the sparkles are really fine and distributed, making it a bit more subtle than the filaments with large glitter specks.

Pale Green - High Gloss PLA

Extrusion Temp 200C to 220C
Bed Temp 60C

I didn't know Monoprice did silk type/high gloss so I was pleasantly surprised to find another that I could supply. Of course I had to put as much green into this month's UFO as possible lol.

Teal PolyLite - PLA

Extrusion Temp:190 – 230°C
Bed Temp:25 – 60°C
Print Speed:40 – 60mm/s

More of a baby blue, but still in the green family =P It's been a while since we've had Polymaker in the UFO and the also offered to supply rolls for the Mothership!

Bonus Accessory!

Flush Cutters

While not the first time I've supplied cutters with last year's toolkit, these flush cutters were recommended to me by Mad Monkey as being a good quality set. I know we all probably have a few already, but can you really have enough tools?

Bonus Project!

10ft 30 Micro LEDs Fairy Lights

Definitely not the most exciting project part this month, with the limitation of shipping for the parts I did have planned for this month - I had to grab something within budget that I could acquire in bulk quantities. My initial idea was to decorate your 3D Printer for St. Patrick's Day - unfortunately due to delays we missed that holiday =(

I still hope that you may find them useful in other projects, I'd love to see what you come up with. The next 4 months (shipping willing) I have some projects planned and already ordered that should make up for these lame ones I'm having to settle for during these trying times.
