Safety first! Whenever printing, in daily life and also in our production plant safety is of our highest concern. That’s why we require all our guests when they enter the production area to wear safety glasses. Since this should not be forgotten we have them ready to grab at the entrance of our building and made a safety glasses holder to display them well:
We chose the Snap together sunglass holder by rockah as the basis and created the footing ourselves (design by our print engineer Sven Hacker). It is an ideal design and easy to print. Perfect for safety glasses or for your collection of sunglasses.
Settings used on the Ultimaker 2+ were:
- 0.4mm nozzle
- 0.2mm layerheight
- Printspeed: 45mm/s
For this print we used our trusted PLA Economy, a highly popular filament used for bulk projects by many of our users… and ourselves.
PLA Economy is a fantastic PLA grade which we launched in November of 2016. Initially we released four colors: white, red, black and silver. We added the always popular Dark Blue slightly later, which is similar to our very own Ultra Marine Blue that we offer in our portfolio of PLA/PHA filaments.
PLA Economy offers a great value for your money. One spool consists of 2.2kg of filament for a dirt cheap price of a little over € 35 (ex VAT and shipping). It is a different grade than our range of PLA/PHA, but we guarantee the same colorFabb quality. Our filaments are readily available from our webshop. You can use the standard PLA settings if your printer has these pre-defined and these should work fine.
You can also opt for the PLA Economy Value Pack: order four spools as a value pack and receive an immediate 10% discount!
PLA Economy is very well suited for the maker who needs quality at an affordable price. It is a perfect filament for large volume and small series production, made with the guaranteed colorFabb quality that we are known for.
