And this one looked like fun. I also had a few grams of "free" sample from <a href="https://rigid.ink">rigid.ink</a>. I say it that way because I had to pay shipping from the UK to get it. But that's OK, I got 34 grams of bright green PLA to play with.</p> <p>The suggested settings were a bit lower than what I usually use for PLA. The bed was 45℃ and the hotend at 180℃, the fan was set at 100% from layer 2 up. It printed well at those settings and very easily popped off the bed. The surfaces were very smooth, especially the top which was smoother than I usually get. The plastic has a nice feel in the fingers, not quite as slippery as ABS but smoother than some other PLA's I've handled.</p> <p>One negative that I noticed, there was visible lifting in the corners. Especially the rear left corners of each part. As this was such a small part I was a little surprised. I have seen PLA lift before but on larger parts. I don't have enough of the sample left to try again with different settings.</p> <p>Overall, I really like the puzzle and I am happy with the PLA although I would try some different settings for the next print.</p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-source-url field--type-link field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Source URL</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="https://www.thingiverse.com/make:482788">https://www.thingiverse.com/make:482788</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-design-rating field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Design Rating</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/term/print-rating/4-stars" hreflang="en">4 stars</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-other-images field--type-image field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Other Images</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"> <a href="https://greybeard.org/sites/default/files/images/2018-04/rigid%20ink%204.png"><img src="/sites/default/files/styles/medium/public/images/2018-04/rigid%20ink%204.png?itok=qaVTnZ2f" width="165" height="220" alt="The parts, complete, on the printer" typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-medium" /> </a> </div> <div class="field__item"> <a href="https://greybeard.org/sites/default/files/images/2018-04/rigid%20ink%203.png"><img src="/sites/default/files/styles/medium/public/images/2018-04/rigid%20ink%203.png?itok=0uNELJ95" width="165" height="220" alt="Parts before assembly." typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-medium" /> </a> </div> <div class="field__item"> <a href="https://greybeard.org/sites/default/files/images/2018-04/rigid%20ink%207.png"><img src="/sites/default/files/styles/medium/public/images/2018-04/rigid%20ink%207.png?itok=RtmgAas2" width="220" height="220" alt="Some lifting at the corners was experienced." typeof="foaf:Image" class="image-style-medium" /> </a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-resolution field--type-integer field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Resolution</div> <div content="150" class="field__item">150µ</div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-filament-manufacturer field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Filament Manufacturer</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/term/filament-manufacturer/rigidink" hreflang="en">rigid.ink</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-filament-type field--type-entity-reference field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Filament Type</div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/term/filament-type/pla" hreflang="en">PLA</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-above clearfix"> <span class="field_label"><strong>Tags:</strong></span> <ul class="links inline field_items"> <li><a href="/term/tags/3d-print" hreflang="en">3D Print</a></li> <li><a href="/term/tags/pla" hreflang="en">PLA</a></li> <li><a href="/term/tags/puzzle" hreflang="en">puzzle</a></li> <li><a href="/term/tags/thingiverse" hreflang="en">thingiverse</a></li> </ul> </div> <section class="field field--name-comment field--type-comment field--label-above comment-wrapper"> <h2 class="title comment-form__title">Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=9&amp;2=comment&amp;3=comment" token="1g0_Z49MsJ1d2YR9jPRW7ku1mahA70BrmRzz7aT_CCI"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> Wed, 25 Apr 2018 03:10:22 +0000 Bill Waggoner 9 at https://greybeard.org https://greybeard.org/node/9#comments Memorabilia 2 https://greybeard.org/article/memorabilia-2 <span property="schema:name" class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Memorabilia 2</span> <span rel="schema:author" class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><span lang="" about="/user/bill-waggoner" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="">Bill Waggoner</span></span> <span property="schema:dateCreated" content="2018-04-22T23:25:40+00:00" class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Sun, 04/22/2018 -
