Very nice. Is is it ABA or PLA and what nozzle temp?
Also what did you use to keep it suck to the bed? Hair spray?

thanks
Keep up the good work.

That is one of the best I have seen!
I will have to try that on my Orion but I doubt I could match the quality of yours.

User MHackney came up with the printing of PLA on regular copier or printer paper lightly adhered to the glass with spray adhesive. The PLA really sticks to the paper.

I agree with every nice thing that was said about this. Salute.
Me: That's a cool DubStep. I really like the drop. But could you turn it down a little?

And that is why I will never buy HotPoint again!

yea read about the paper etc. nice, i have been pretty content using the hairspray seems to work well enough for me as far as holding parts down and still easy to clean up etc. have to try out that method sometime for sure.

I have never been able to make this print right on my Replicator.. but after seeing this I think I'll give it a shot on my MAX! Your print looks awesome.
