The RapMan successfully printed without intervention and unattended for more than 13 hours! I am leaving the support material on until I can take some better images tomorrow. But, the real proof will be side by side comparisons once the support material is removed. Good news!

Follow the Directions!

The Good News The good news is that the failure had nothing to do with the quality or reliability of the RapMan kit. But, for now, make sure you cut just enough of the material to square the end, taking off as little as possible. Mistake #2 - Not paying attention to the material type before taking it from the box. In taking out the material I''ve been using for the duck tests, I failed to pay attention to whether it was PLA or ABS. I have good news and bad news.

But, I suspect that it will be unless the fibers in the material I''m about to introduce pose some problems at the normal ABS plastic extrusion temperatures. That may bode well for us, since 3D Systems is likely to be paying close attention to this new material.

In the meantime, I am printing with my RapMan 3.2 I''m also happy to report that being able to turn my attention back onto RapMan improvements has resulted in finding a way to completely eliminate Z-Axis wobble caused by slight deviations in the long screw rods. While the PLA parts are working, ABS is a tougher, more robust, material than PLA Last week I was away on vacation. The week before, I''d loaned my Cube to Peyton Duncan, who brilliantly used it.
