What could be more important that the office coffee machine?
It holds a handful of beans normally and we are forever filling it up.
So I have printed this handy extension adding 40mm more height and holding a lot more beans.
The fun bit is that it took 3 hours to print. I have strung a broom handle from hooks on the ceiling to hold the reels of plastic. This meant, for a change, that this 3 hour print needed no intevention from me at all - it just worked. Needless to say that did not stop me watching it like a hawk waiting to see what was going to go wrong.
The end result fits perfectly and has a really solid 3mm thick wall.
(Printed in thanslucent PLA at 215C and 50mm/s feed rate)
P.S. Yes, 5 different people have told me about the BBC article on 3D chocolate printing.
