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.

This month was themed for Thanksgiving, from the design of the boxes and the trifold, to the filament colors and the project! I'm really excited to see what everyone thinks!

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)
In case anyone is wondering what the little colored flags are on the samples this month, @Bryan_Vines suggested to mark the outer ends of the samples in the hopes that people could slip the samples on to a spool and know which end to feed to the printer. Let me know if it helps!
Fillamentum from FilamentOne
Gold Happens Extrafill PLA
Extrusion Temp: 190 to 210C
Bed Temp: 0-60C
One of two filament colors selected this month to represent all of the golds and browns of Thanksgiving and fall. From the golden leaves to that sweet golden color of a plump cooked turkey!
Extrusion Temp: 190 to 215C
Bed Temp: 40-60C
This beautiful crimson color was selected as a representation of fall leaves, and the cranberries you're sure to enjoy this Thanksgiving!
Pink HQA PLA
Extrusion Temp: 205 to 215C
Bed Temp: 0-60C
Pink may not be a color you think about in the fall or for Thanksgiving, but I chose this color as a personal memory. Growing up, my mother always made this fluffy fruity dessert that was pink. So this color is a throwback to my mom. =)
Keene Village Plastics
Pearl Sparkle Copper PETG
Extrusion Temp: 230 to 260C
Bed Temp: 70-100C
The second brown color this month, I loved the shine of this filament. Another reminder of those browned dinner rolls, stuffing and shimmering falling leaves.

Cooking Countdown Timer!
It was tough coming up with a Thanksgiving related project this month. But I figured that a cooking timer would be helpful to everyone! Plus, I have a challenge for you. I have designed one Turkey holder for the timer that you can access below. But this time of year is about giving! So I'd like to challenge all of you to come up with a design for the cooking timer, whether it's a new shell or another holder, and then give it to the community and fellow subscribers via your favorite model sharing site! Be sure to share it on Twitter with the hash tag #UFOTurkeyTimer and tag me so I can share it as well!
Also note, the battery is wrapped in plastic, so you will need to remove the plastic first before the timer will work =)
