Bake your PLA and have it outperform everything else! #Filaween

Ok, so I mentioned how Proto-pasta promises extra strength and rigidity for their HTPLA line of filaments if you essentially bake them in the oven and anneal them. This causes the typically unorganized, amorphous microstructure of the plastic to crystallize and form larger grains that are much more of a consistent, uniform element within themselves […]

Leather ping pong net w/ lasers, 3D printing, & Bob Clagett | How to

I’ll see you guys in a minute! You’re gonna have to crouch down more. Ah there you go! Alright alright. Oh my gosh this is terrifying. Hahaha! Hey guys we’re Evan and Katelyn! And I’m Bob at I Like to Make Stuff! And today we’re making a leather ping pong net with adjustable 3D printed […]

How to wire your 3D printer!

So the iTopie i3 is almost done, and what typically takes the longest is wiring everything up properly. Now, i know that part is not fun, it’s not rewarding, at least not for me, and it’s like this huge threshold between having a machine that looks finished, you know, with all the parts mounted and […]

Hi. Shh. (Trying to focus.) Y-YEAH!! ((slap hands)) ONE MILLION SUBSCRIBERS! {{burst-open party horn noise}} {{plop}} Well, this calls for two things. First, I’d like to make a celebration candle, which I’ll make out of a Jacob’s ladder; And second, …I’m gonna *give away four* of these Lulzbot mini to you, my viewers and patrons, […]

Autoleveling on 3D printers: 9 myths and 12 sensors tested!

Twelve options to sense the surface of a 3D printer’s bed. Twelve solutions to the same problem. Twelve sensors that are all different. But there can only be one! Well, actually, each one of these has an upside, so let’s see what they can and can’t do. Myth busting 3D-printer style! Essentially these should all […]

CNC mill built from a 3D Printer!

So i’ve always wanted a CNC mill, arguably my interest in automated manufacturing in general was what got me into 3D printing in the first place, since 3D printing is sorta the same thing from a technical standpoint, just way more accessible. But i still wanted something that could machine materials and not just extrude […]

Smoothing PLA with Sandpaper

Hi, Welcome to Tinkerine Experiments. This is a new series where we will take different myths and rumors around 3D printing and test them out for ourselves. Today we are going to start things off with something simple. We will take these PLA prints and some sandpaper to try to polish the surface. We have […]

Does Acetone also work for welding and smoothing PLA 3D printed parts?

Wha’s up every one, Tom here. And at this point it can be considered pretty much common knowledge that you can smooth out the layer lines of 3D printed parts made from ABS, HIPS and delikes with an acetone vapor bath. But I was told that this should also work on some type of PLA […]

Effective and Safer 3D Print Smoothing with Epoxy not Acetone

So I wanted to find a method of smoothing my 3d models without using acetone. So, I did a little bit a research and I think I’ve found the perfect method Stick around to see how you can smooth your 3d prints Okay. So here we have the Darth Vader Melted Mask from one of […]
