Sadness Strikes!

Extruding wet Ninjaflex

Noooooooo!

Regardless of how I have been storing my materials… something terrible happened.  My Ninjaflex filament absorbed water.  As I was heating up my hot end on my ever so reliable and slightly modified Tevo Black Widow, I heard the tell tale signs that something was amiss.  There was some slight sizzling and a couple of weird popping noises.  Instead of a solid stream of filament slowly streaming out of my nozzle, I was greeted with a sputtering bubble of liquid goo.

Whelp, that’s depressing!  I needed to finish the printable joints on this new 3D printed hand that I was printing.  After lowering the temperature of the filament 10c from what I normally print at, the filament started to look a little better when extruding.  I decided to push the print job through regardless of the printing temperature and hope for the best.  The job managed to finish and the part seemed strong.  The surface quality was rough and textured.  Not the smooth finish with almost invisible layers that I am used to seeing in my prints.

I decided at this time to check the other hygroscopic filaments in my possession.  Both rolls of Ninjaflex, two rolls of PETG and my roll of Nylon were both water logged messes.  So now, I had three options.

East 3D Gecko Review

In this article i will just list some small points to give you the low down of the East 3D Gecko. Great all round 3D printer corexy structure with a big build volume of 310mm*300mm*300mm. It is a more advanced build, you must take your time to put together if you have time the Gecko will make you happy.
