If you ever have a single part fail, contaminating the rest

If you ever have a single part fail, contaminating the rest

Postby YellowGTO » 2014-Jan-Mon-15-Jan

I got sick of having a single part fail and ruining the rest of my parts. I figured out a way to save the rest of the parts without having to shave off a ton of plastic on the next part.

The paper towel flexes so you don't need to get it the exact height. So far its been working really well.

LoL, i thought i was bad, i have been known to pause a print and pop a bit of folded paper into the print if i know its about to do a long bridge. Works a treat, and so much better that support material which tends to fill all your horizontal holes with gunk.
