3DFuel PLA

Post by GrueMaster » May 4th, 2017, 1:56 am

My spool of 3DFuel 'Wound Up" coffee based pla arrived today. First print turned out great, although I need to tweak the settings a bit. Smelled like fresh brewed coffee while it was printing. If it weren't bedtime, I'd brew up a cup.

This is on my Hictop 3DP-17 with temp at 200c/45c and main speed at 50mm/s. This is a bookshelf for Mansions of Madness. Note the US Quarter underneath for scale (19mm X 8mm X 32mm for those across the pond).

Once opened the smell is unfortunately lost relatively fast...

Actually, it releases the coffee smell while printing.

And I think I used to have a bottle of cologne like that.

Ok, time to revisit this thread. The last time I used this filament was in the print above, and that was a long time ago.

I just finished printing a headphone stand to take to work, and other than Octoprint crashing with less than 40 minutes left (recovered - mostly), it looks better than awesome!

Look at the detailing.

And compare to Hatchbox Wood filament on the left (same headphone stand).

Looks very good! Could you maybe share that model? I might like to print one myself :)

That's easy. It is this: https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2446648. No special settings (draft mode 0.2mm layer height, 20% infill).
