I have two boxes of filament from seacans in my possession now. Looks like the ABS, TPU, etc is on its way from 3d printing canada, but still in Onterrible at the moment.
I dropped the boxes by the 3d printer on my way home from work today. Somebody will likely want to check the box contents against the order, and repack them in the dry box…
This is our filament order from seacans. It’s all here. I don’t see need to unwrap anything before using it.
Next order I would suggest clear red, yellow, and transparent ABS. Think of all the tail lights we could print.
You could do interesting things like this! lolz
@pierre Would those be Stinger hollow point rounds good sir?!
As for printing PolyCarbonate, is there a plan for a printer enclosure ? Without stabilizing (and increasing) the print volume temperature, printing PC will be VERY challenging!!
Also, do we have an all-metal hot-end? That will be needed as well.
Here’s some PolyCarbonate info I collected as well as an interesting alternative; ASA.
Good print Quality
Prints warp very easily if your not careful
Requires a printer enclosure
Requires an all metal hot end due to very high temperatures
Filament will degrade in the nozzle if printed too slowly
“Racid” smell when printing

The other order showed up at my desk today, but I was running late and did not have time to run it to the space. I’ll get it in tomorrow or on the weekend. Guess we should get started on putting together that multimaterial kit, huh?
