Subject: Blinky's adventure at North Dakota State University Dear Joshua,
Blinky has had a wonderful time here in Fargo, ND. He perched near our tower of empty spools to look over our 3D printing lab area and architecture studios. Blinky liked our filament color samples, but was sad to see that we didn't have any Makergeeks dark blue. He enjoyed hiding among our Display of Awesome with other cool 3D printed objects. Later, Blinky read some articles on 3D printing and took some time to print some bison key chains which he made into a cozy nest. After checking out some of our architecture projects, he took a coffee break and a bath. I hope you enjoy the pictures of his trip as much as I enjoyed taking them.
Sincerely, Crystal Rinkenberger 4th year Architecture Student NDSU

A lot of work, but worth it By Alan C Reiner

A lot of work, but worth it By Alan C Reiner Getting the hard to stick filaments to STICK... no questions asked!! I just spent quite a bit of time battling the Taulman 618 Nylon filament. No matter what I did, it would not stick to the build platform. Now that I figured it out, it works like a dream. I removed a star for the moisture issues, the amount of work required to print with it reliably, and the extreme contraction it exhibits making it difficult to do anything precise. But it still gets 4 stars because it really opens up the printing possibilities once you have it working.
To get the Taulman 618 Nylon filament to stick, I did the following:
(1) Buy some canvas: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000WFT9Z0
(2) Get some epoxy: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0002BBV46
(3) Get something totally flat that can replace or be attached to your build platform
(3a) If you add something to the build platform, make sure you add something of equal thickness to the part of the printer that hi…
