Just wanted to showcase some prints that were made using AstroPrint
For reference, I used a FlashForge Creator Pro connected to the AstroPrint Cloud when printing all of these.
I’ll include design file links and print settings if I have them.
DESIGN FILES: The Madeleine Church
These are some of my favorite prints to be honest.
They were all printed using ColorFabb’s CopperFill.
It’s a bit pricey, but the prints are quite amazing.
Layer Height: 0.25 Infill: 25% Print Speed: 50 mm/s Skirt Lines: 2 Skirt Gap: 7 Support: Touching Build Plate Print Temp: 205 °C Print Bed Temp: 55 °C Retraction Speed 35 mm/2
I still haven’t polished the CopperFill prints yet because I don’t have a tumbler. I know you can polish it by hand using 0000 (very fine) steel wool – but I gave up because it was too cumbersome.
Eventually, I’ll put these prints in a Tumbler and let it tumble for 24 hours. Once that’s done, it should look really good like this.
Here’s a few more clips from when I printed with CopperFill:
I’ve tried regular NinjaFlex many times but couldn’t get consistent results.
SemiFlex on the other hand is MUCH easier to work with. Plus the prints are excellent.
Print Speed: 20 mm/s Print Temperature: 225 °C Print Bed Temperature: 30 °C Retraction Amount: 6 mm
The top of the tiny Eiffel tower didn’t come out as well as I wanted, but when it’s that small, it’s a bit tricky to print.
SemiFlex is definitely one of my favorite filaments
ProtoPasta Aromatic Coffee PLA
ProtoPasta’s Coffee PLA is interesting. It smells like coffee when you are printing (which is one of their selling points) – but after it’s printed, it just looks like dark brown PLA.
I am not a huge fan of the filament, but still had fun printing with it.
Hope you enjoyed all of those.
What are you printing right now?
What cool prints have you printed in the past? (Include design file links if you have them)
Would love to see some pictures!
