Wombot is alive and starting to kick :)

PLA, no supports, no infill and no cooling fan. It is exactly as it came of the print bed – no clean up. Just for scale the tower is about 40mm, the biggest square (the bridge) is 10mm. Life print looks much better than pictures from my phone ๐Ÿ˜‰ Not long to go.

Carbon PLA vs PLA some tech info

Carbon PLA vs PLA some tech info

Just a quick one.

For those who like technical info even thought sometimes might not mean much ๐Ÿ™‚

I have nice little device that measures the hardness of the plastic.

So I got 3mm PLA and Carbon samples and tested hardness. I took 3mm dilament so it is not a printed part just to make sure that consistency is the same and there are no gaps between the layers thus solid sample. The results are reported on the Shore D sccale units.

So the results are:

PLA – 75

Carbon PLA – 83

ABS for comparison – 65

Aurarum

Top is standard black PLA and the bottom one is Carbon PLA. It is way less glossy
