Plug = :(

Was just about to print the 2nd print for the doo on Friday and had a plug build up really didn't feel like taking the hot end apart. So I made a very pointy point on the filliment and hope for the best. This didn't work so I pulled it out and to my surprise it pulled out the plug. The plug stuck to the new filliment so happy days here's the plug and the pointy bit.

Crazy ay?

Visiting ITT

So went over to ITT and met a really nice chap by the name of Paul, he showed me around the place there where some really cool machines for testing stresses on materials and other things that i have no idea about,

and the main thing I went over to see the SLS 

This is the Sinterstation 2500 plus
This thing is huge Paul also showed me what it can do it can print using metal or nylon, i wish i took more pictures but this was the only one i had


it quite impressive and the quality of the prints are very good. you can see at the back on the right the nylon prop.
