Matte finish PLA 3D Printer filament

High temperature PLA (HTPLA) filament by Proto Pasta is now available with a low luster textured matte surface!

While retaining the easy print-ability and low emissions of standard PLA, HTPLA can be heat treated to retain stiffness to higher temps and it has improved stability compared to HTPLA without fibers.
The matte finish comes from plant fibers, so you also do not need a wear resistant nozzle for this filament!img_20161107_1357091proto-pasta-matte-fiber-treefrog-2

3D Print your own Pokémon Pikachu today!

Pokémon Pikachu

This 10 inch tall 3D print of a “low poly” Pok√©mon Pikachu ¬†was printed for a silent auction, but I thought it would be fun to post! ¬†For all of you Pok√©mon Go fans, this is for you! ¬†It is a¬†low poly Pikachu printed in yellow PLA on a Lulzbot TAZ 6 3D printer.¬†¬†PLA ¬†is one of the most commonly used filaments in 3D printing because it is so easy to use. PLA has minimal warping and shrinking compared to other materials, which means it thrives when making objects featuring flat surfaces and hard angles, or requiring tight tolerances for fit.¬†The Lulzbot TAZ 6 is also available refurbished here. ¬†You could also scale this print down and print it on a Lulzbot Mini 3D printer!

Just look at all the fun you can have with a 3D printer!  Whether you are a Pokémon fan or a hobbyist of some other kind, you can print one of a kind 3D prints to suite your needs!  From figurines to replacement parts, a 3D printer is a useful tool to have around!  We recently 3D printed something even more useful than this Pokemon, chair feet for a kitchen table.

 

Pokémon Pikachu

Octopus Phone Stand

I’ve been looking around for the right stand that I can keep at the office on my desk! ¬†We are rather fond of octopus here at ItWorks so it seemed appropriate to have a octopus phone stand to go along with our other octofriends! ¬† And of course it must be in pink! ¬†Found the designs on Thingiverse¬†. ¬† They say you can use adhesive to hold it down and keep it from moving about, so I’m thinking one of those command adhesive strips would do the trick! ¬†Made with pink PLA filament!

Pretty snazzy, if I do say so myself!!
