Our Ultimaker 2+ 3D printer generously donated by Chris Suddell, M0VUE is now fully operational. It is easy to use and quite a fast machine and several parts have been successfully made in the last few weeks.
Chris donated a quantity of different filaments as well, so we were able to try out a few types. ASA is an alternative to ABS for outdoor applications, and produced some excellent results which will be resistant to UV light from the sun.
The printer is available for anybody who needs to make enclosures or even more complex parts. Quite a few members are able and willing to help those who are new to this incredible method of making plastic parts for your projects.
