Re: Bubbles under Build Surface

I am just over coming a few obstacles in my endeavour to learn the steps to a prefect 3D Print. This one is being able to keep my build surface from forming air bubbles at the ABS build surface temperatures. Most likely air was there the entire time and just expanded during the 1st few ABS builds, A...

Re: Garden Hose Adapter

Water tight was not a requirement, I am just playing to see what I could and could not Print that actually works.

In other words, I am checking the limitations of what my 3D Printer can 3D Print.

Re: Garden Hose Adapter

I have not tried annealing the PLA print?

Will Try 230 degrees Fahrenheit for 1 hour to see, was also going to use denser infill.

Garden Hose Adapter.jpg The adapter was connected to the outside faucet with no other parts except for a rubber washer to seal the connection.
