So I had the wonderful opportunity to use my school’s physics lab for whatever experiment I wanted, as long as the teacher approved and as long as it was for the purpose of a school paper. So, I decided to test how much stress could be tolerated by 3D Printed PLA bars, with different settings […]

Review

For this review I will detail my build of the Jaune Arc's Sword Season 4 RWBY. This review is my own and I was offered no compensation for my opinions, which are my own. I was given the file for build but am under no promise of a good review in return. First let’s go over what we need for this build.

Flexion Retrofit Kit Review https://3dprinterchat.com/flexion-retrofit-kit-review/ https://3dprinterchat.com/flexion-retrofit-kit-review/#comments Fri, 06 Apr 2018 13:05:01 +0000 https://3dprinterchat.com/?p=22573 Originally this post Flexion Retrofit Kit Review appeared first on 3D Printer Chat.

First Print of Flexion

My Monoprice Duplicator I3 V2 3D printer has been under extruding and I needed a way to print flexible filaments. I looked into many solutions like the Flexion Single Extruder, Bondtech QR Universal Extruder and the E3D Extruder Upgrades. I read articles and watched YouTube videos reviewing each. In the end I decided to go with the Flexion based on price and ease of installation.

GeckoTek EZ-Stik Build Surface Review https://3dprinterchat.com/22450/ https://3dprinterchat.com/22450/#comments Tue, 13 Mar 2018 21:04:00 +0000 https://3dprinterchat.com/?p=22450 Originally this post GeckoTek EZ-Stik Build Surface Review appeared first on 3D Printer Chat.

Sheet

I recently needed to replace the China made generic build surface on my Monoprice Duplicator I3 V2 3D printer. First let me say I do not work for GeckoTek and I not being paid in any way by them for my opinion. The sheet of GeckoTek in this review was purchased by me with my own funds. While considering on what to replace it with I caught a review by the JATMN on his YouTube channel. I was very impressed with the review and so I decided to purchase a sheet and try it. GeckoTek is the name of the company and they specialize in hot, cold and magnetic base surfaces for filament such as ABS, PLA, PETG, Nylon, Composites. I have used Buildtek in the past and will discuss the differences in the two surfaces next. Their surfaces come in a wide range of sizes and are easily trimmed to fit your build plate. I bought the 200x210 and didn’t have to trim anything, it fit perfect.
