eSun Funky Filament & Creality CR10...

All the leaves are brown, and the sky is ... well, let's just say with the Autumn comes planning for the the holiday building-season. We're happy to announce these recent arrivals from eSun filaments and Creality3D printers. Amongst our many cases we've recently received, we got some new things to play with. In no particular order of funkiness:

eTwinkle Rainbow! (a.k.a.: Unicorn Sparklebarf)

If that "My Little Pony" Unicorn ever had an all-weekend bender, it may result in a color blend like this. It's definitely a most intense blend of colors and sparkles. If you're not sure what color to use, this is the one.

eTwinkle Silver

For a more ... tasteful print than our first selection, you may consider the Silver flecked variant in the eTwinkle lineup. Must more refined in nature. Just screams to be used in a holiday ornament.

Silk Magic - Dual-color Red and Blue

I was introduced to "Shot Silk" when I was a kid by my eldest sibling. My young ears though she said "Shocked Silk". After all, what would you call something that shifted weirdly from one color to another depending the angle you looked at it? In any case, eSun has taken advantage of the low-mixing characteristics of PLA plastic and developed a way to co-extrude two colors side-by side, which really does look striking.

Silk Magic - Dual-color Green and Blue

Similar to the above Green & Blue, but with a more police-esque color scheme. Mid-shift, it turns almost purple. Weird, but true.

Silk Magic - Dual-color Gold and Silver

Again like the rest, but with a very nice metallic gold and silver scheme. Another holiday favorite.

Light-Weight Foaming ePLA - Black

And...something very different. This stuff is making waves in the model aircraft and cosplay communities. This stuff expands like whipping cream out of the nozzle, then solidifies into a solid foam! It's wack. We can't wait to put it to use!

Light-Weight Foaming ePLA - Natural

Just like the other stuff, but in a neutral non-colored chemistry. Take a look at the datasheet on the page - the amount of foaming is controlled by your speed and temperature settings.

3D Printer - The Creality CR10 Smart Pro

Yeah, we're on a bit of a 3D-printing-related kick today. We also have the new CR10 Smart Pro in stock. It's a pretty polished unit, with built-in networking and video. Honestly though - not completely sold on the "Walled Garden" of having Creality talk to the cloud for my printing (albeit is pretty decent). I'm hoping for a community edition firmware that lets me have more direct control like Octoprint allows.

Wednesday Cool Links: Nook Hacking, Kerf...

Hey, looks like we are still being late with the Wednesday cool link posts. Our busy days at the office are filled with fighting the multiple misbehaving lasers (with other lasers), conquering fridges stuffed with food (curtsey of Solarbotics bosses) and withstanding the unexpectedly good weather (or so I've heard…). Today's link collection is random […]

Ok, besides being a conjunction of two things we really love (Make Magazine & BEAM Robotics), it also is an open-source hardware project that is about little "T-Beams". This project is using the "KickStarter" model of sponsorship. Ask for pledges for the projects, and if the minimum is met (and it has - yay!), the […]
