Check out these great 3D prints!

High resolution 3D printed mug

Keith has been working on high resolution prints lately, and has been getting great results with his LulzBot TAZ 5 and TAZ 6. The mug and tube were printed in natural ABS to minimize the effect of filament dye on print quality with .13 and .15mm layer heights.  The pictures don’t really do justice to how smooth the surfaces are. The only finishing was to remove some support material on the mug, these are as printed, not sanded or otherwise finished.  Simplify3d was used for slicing and support generation.

Tool to set idler tension on Lulzbot 3D printers

For consistent filament extrusion with a LulzBot 3D printer, be sure to check that the idler springs have proper tension. Lulzbot TAZ, Mini, and any other printers that use a Wade’s extruder require an 5mm (or slightly less) spacing between the outer faces of the washers that contain the idler tension springs. The spacing between the idler and shoulder of the idler tension screw is 8mm or less, which is what this idler tension jig sets.
You can 3D print your own handy tool to quickly set the correct tension on the extruder filament idler springs!
