3D Printing with Crystal Clear PET Filament

MakerGeeks Description

Are you looking for a true transparent filament? Look no further!
We now have extended our 3D printer filament range with PET filament.
PET (also known as PolyEthylene Terephthalate) in its original state is a colourless and crystal clear material. PET is a fairly stiff and very lightweight material, which is very strong and impact-resistant. 
This unique set of characteristics makes PET filament a true asset to our 3D printer filament range.
Our PET filament range is a 3D printer filament range which is produced and extruded in the Netherlands. Our PET is a clear 3D printer filament which is available in 1.75mm and 3mm diameter. 
Printing with PET 3D printer filament will work with basically all desktop 3D printers.
Amongst others:
  • RepRap (Mendel, Huxley, Prusa)
  • Ultimaker
  • MakerBot (Replicator, Replicator 2, Thing-O-Matic, Cupcake)
  • BitsfromBytes (3D Touch, Rapman 3.2)
  • UP!
  • AND MANY MORE....!

Robot Track System Lawn Mower Build Pt: 1

RoBO Lawn-Mower So, I work at our church on the grounds team and my job is to use a push mower on the VERY steep hills around the main building; I would say there is about 2 acres of this extreme hills that need to be mowed every week. Whew... it's pretty rough sometimes!! Of course my inner-geek always comes out while I'm mowing and I think of how I could make it easier... well, what about having a robot do this for me!!

But what sort of robot could manage these hills and do a GOOD JOB of cutting God's grass... hummm...

I have been doodleing and drawing for about 6 months on this and finally started building last week!!

Here we go...

I had a small push mower that I had just bought so I was going to use that for my platform and started researching what sort of motors are best for robots and battle robots; and found that wheelchair motors are awesome work horses.

I found some on eBay for the Jazzy Pride 1 wheelchair, perfect!! I also found …
