as it was pointed out in previous post we are discontinuing the 0.5kg spools. PLA and ABS is going to be on white spools and large black spools. Until we will fully migrate to large black spools.
Here is a custom spool holder for the Flashforge Dreamer. I haven’t had a chance to print it myself but since the large black spool fits inside the dreamer it should be ok for both – white and black spools.
If you are into cosplay and after some props, why don’t you visit one of our customer shops.
There you can find some really nice items.
To be honest knowing how much work goes into making them I personally think that the prices might be a little low 😉
I think this is long overdue.
So we have 3 size spools:
Small black spool. In general it holds 0.5kg/spool. We used to make PLA and ABS on them. Going forward only exotic materials (such as TPE, Nylon and other) will be on these spools.
Our standard spool size at this stage. Holds 1kg of filament. Used mostly for 1.75mm ABS and PLA. We still have some 3mm filament remaining on these spools. In the future once our stock of these spools is depleted we are going to move to large spools.
Large black spools. All our new 3mm filament production is going to be on new spools. These spools hold 0.9kg/spool. we have some 1.75mm PLA and ABS on these spools already as well. If someone wants to get these spools rather than the small can ask it during the order.
Hope it all explains everything.
I thought some of you would be looking how to use our spools on the Flashforge Pro.
The issue is that the 2015 Pro uses 54mm brackets and even our big spools don’t fit on them.
So I thought I will make a design for replacement bracket. Actually two versions of it – one 32mm (our white spools) and the 52mm (our big black spools).

Hi all – again 🙂
As you can imagine there are lots of 3D design software packages – some are free and some are paid. Some are more complicated some are easier to use.
Have you heard about Autodesk Fusion 360? The link is below.
It is really sophisticated design package. I would say it is maybe even better than the Solidworks. You can start with simple shape designs using standard extrude options or if you are advanced user you can use parametric designing. In such a case if you change one dimension the rest of the dimensions would be updated automatically. It save a lot of time. The other benefit of it is the timeline – you can go through the steps and change/revert back at any stage.
One of the most rare options is the thread designs. It is so simple to make the thread that you would be surprised.
The biggest difference between Fusion 360 and Solidworks is that the Fusion 360 is available for free to the hobbyists and/or education users.
And the link to the software is:

Have fun and remember that 3D printing is only limited by your imagination.
Maybe you got stock and have no idea how to do something? Design, print or got some other technical/hardware questions please feel free to post here and I will try to answer, maybe even make a video with step by step process.

Welcome to our new blog page.
We are going to try to use this blog rather than the old one that would allow us to show more than one image per post.
Lets see how it goes.
