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.


It’s that time of year where we become thankful for everything that we have in this life. Whether it is friends, family, the 3D printer sitting behind you, or the smaller things in life that others take for granted... we all have something. I for one am thankful to all of you for your continued support and blessing me with having such a wonderful Alien3D family through all of you. Every day someone puts a smile on my face on social media or meeting you in person - it’s an amazing feeling to know that I am making a difference in someone else’s life, and hopefully putting a smile on your face as well. Thank you so much for setting out on this journey with me.
This month we have some cool filaments from GreenGate3D, 3D Warhorse, 3D Passion and FilamentOne. The accessory is something a few of you have been asking for, and the project... well, let’s just say I have a challenge for you... Gobble Gobble! Read On!

This month I had 5 Mothership prizes to give out. BigTreeTech provided five SKR v1.3 Control boards for people to upgrade an existing printer or use on a newly built printer!

Congrats to the winners of the November 2019 Mothership Box!

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)

3D Passion

PLA - Atlantic Sky

Extrusion Temp: 190 to 210C
Bed Temp: 0-60C

As we get out of Fall and enter in to Winter, we say goodbye to the soft blue skies and make way for the grey snowy winter days!

3D Warhorse

PLA - Flesh

Extrusion Temp: 190 to 220C
Bed Temp: 60-80C

While looking for colors, I thought this was the most flesh looking filament I'd seen... and thought it would represent the skin of an uncooked turkey rather well!

GreenGate3D

Recycled PETG - Clear

Extrusion Temp: 225 to 245C
Bed Temp: 70C

I met GreenGate at ERRF and thought it was pretty cool that a company was recycling PETG and making more filament out of it. So I got some to share with you all! I'm told it can print at lower temps than other PETG, but I've listed the standard PETG temps above.

The photo doesn't do it justice, but this prints really clear, the white rings are from the slicer settings to ensure vertical shell thickness.

FilamentOne

PRO SELCT PLA - Silk Gold

Extrusion Temp: 205 to 225C
Bed Temp: 55-65C

Since we had the uncooked turkey, I decided we needed a cooked turkey color as well!

Bonus Accessory!

Deburring System

People who watch me on YouTube are always telling me I'm going to cut myself because I used razor blades all of the time to cut off rafts and little bits of my prints... Get deburring tools! they said... so I did, and I got you all some too!

Bonus Project!

30 Second Programmable Sound Module

As I mentioned earlier, this month's project is a challenge for you! I've gone ahead and pre-programmed all of the modules with turkey gobbling sounds... so in the spirit of "Giving" this time of year, my challenge is for all of you to design a Turkey to hold the module and allow the button to be pushed to play the turkey gobble! Anyone who tags me on Twitter or the Alien3D account on Facebook, I will link out to your files.

The white button is to play the sounds, the res button is to program the sound. The record button will only work when there is an audio patch cable plugged in to it (not provided, I hoped they'd come with one *sadface*).

Once the audio cable is plugged in and set as the sound player from your device / PC / laptop, then you can press the red button and it will beep. After 30 seconds it will stop recording and beep twice. Or you can press it at a shorter length to end the recording.
