  1. Hi Mike,

    That's looking like good progress.
    What print speed are you getting?
    Is that black PLA? or ABS? I have just started printing with black PLA at the weekend, and it looks quite different, also seems to need a different temperature.

  2. Hi Mike,
    Glad to see that you are back in action. these look like good, solid, usable parts. Did you print them together or in three seperate prints?

  3. its a grey/silver pla http://ultimachine.com/content/pla-3mm-silver-5lb

    yes it needs allot lower temp than ABS, i print between 190-210c but one day i should double check my temps.

    those were done in 3 seperate prints so that i could fiddle with my setting a bit.
