3D Printed Project – BONUS Modifiable Desktop Tool Holder!

In this episode, we will be looking at what I refer to as an S-Shaped desktop stand which is easily modifiable in programs such as TinkerCad and the like. In addition, we also included a version with 7mm holes to provide an example of ways to modify and even print out!

3D Print Air Quality – PLA verses ABS and the Results are In!

In this episode, we will be testing everyone’s favorite filament yes PLA! Again we will use the same STL for the testings (as we will for all test) that was used in the ABS test run them side by side as well as talk about a couple interesting comments that I received from prior videos on the subject!

Couple points worth note:

[1] Just because you don’t “smell” something doesn’t mean there aren’t particles in the air.
[2] Measurements in the video are for formaldehyde registering substances and TVOC (Total Volatile Organic Compound en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volatile_organic_compound).

This means there could be other “bad” things in the air which we are not measuring. So this is why one of the larger data points we will focus on are PM2.5 counts. So you might ask why we are so concerned about this? Well, Since they are so small and light, PM2.5 particles tend to stay longer in the air than their heavier siblings the PM10 particles. This increases the chances of humans and animals inhaling them and due to their small size, particles smaller than 2.5 micrometers are able to bypass the nose and throat and penetrate deep into the lungs with some may even enter the circulatory system.

There have been studies which have found a close link between exposure to fine particles and premature death from heart and lung disease. Fine particles are also known to trigger or worsen chronic disease such as asthma, heart attack, bronchitis and other respiratory problems as well as a Journal of the American Medical Association (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11879110) paper which suggests that “long-term exposure to PM2.5 may lead to plaque deposits in arteries, causing vascular inflammation and a hardening of the arteries which can eventually lead to heart attack and stroke. Scientists in the study estimated that for every 10 micrograms per cubic meter (μg/m3) increase in fine particulate air pollution, there is an associated 4%, 6% and 8% increased risk of all-cause, cardiopulmonary and lung cancer mortality, respectively”

Now the goal this project is not to promote fear mongering, however information as homes are not factory’s and 3D printing introduces pollutants which many homes in their design where not meant to deal with.

3D Print Air Quality – PETG -vs- ABS and the Results are AMAZING!

In this episode, we will be looking at the air quality test for PET-G and must I am impressed as I expect that it is a “hotter” filament that it would be dirtier, however the result set me back in my chair and fact ran them a couple times to just double check the results!

Again we will use the same STL for the testings (as we will for all test) that was used in the ABS test.

Shop Talk – Solving My Core XY Motor Configuration Issues!

In this episode, we will be sorting out our issues with the motors on the Tronxy x5s as I had motor go bad so I changed it out with the cables and got myself into some trouble because doing so forgot this is a Core X/Y design and there really isn’t an X/Y axis but an Alpha & Beta as they work together much like a delta printer. This being the case, the motor configuration is a bit different and as I proceeded to troubleshoot the issue, figured it would be good to make a video to assist others who may also come across the same problem! Also, even if you don’t have a Core X/Y printer, this is still good video to check out as we will also share seveval general tips & tricks too!

I need to ask for a small favor…

In this episode, I need to ask a small favor as You Tube is changing their monetization policy which means the sister Open-SCAD channel will be demonitized this month if I don’t reach “their” numbers. Now this isn’t huge a thing as over a year it brings in only enough to buy a few rolls of filament, but that is a few rolls of filament that also helps create content for this channel too. Also, it’s the principle of it too, as Youtube has continually been tightening the reins on content providers and this is just a demotivator as making the amount of a Starbucks coffee is no big deal yet it is a source of encouragement to continue. So I just want to say thank you in advance for hearing me out on this 🙂

GearBest JGAURORA A5 – Watch it Print PETGand Check Out The Results!

In this episode, we will be printing PET-G with the GearBest JGAURORA A5 printer! Also I have to say this thing is still amazing for an out of the box printer and what it can do. Also the bed heated up to 100c in no time at all was printing! Now I didn’t go crazy on retraction being the first PET-G print and wanted to avoid a nozzle clog but all in all the print came out great!

3D Print Air Quality – HIPS -vs- ABS Whos Cleaner!

In this episode, we will be looking at HIPS -vs- ABS from an air quality standpoint. As HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene) is typically know as a support material for printing with ABS as it is dissolvable in in d-Limonene (see here: amzn.to/2Gm2Xp8).

However HIPS is also a good substitute for ABS as it is easy to print with as ABS but is much less likely to warp. HIPS is ideal for printing in conjunction with ABS because it has a similar strength and stiffness profile to ABS which means they complement each other well. It also helps that HIPS and ABS need to be printed around the same temperature with the bed at 55°C and the extrusion temp around 225°C. You see more and order HIPS from here: amzn.to/2EaJOpk

Again we will use the same STL for the testings (as we will for all test) that was used in the ABS test.
