Project 3DP

PLA supplies have dwindled. Plan to buy Ultimachine PLA 1.75mm White 1lb. Moving to 1.75mm filament may significantly improve print quality and speed. Tests with 1.75mm filament printed from 3mm filament have been successful. Alternatively, Ultimachine PLA 3mm White 1Kg on Spool has a proven track record at HacDC. Bonus: we will probably receive more sample colors from Ultimachine.

However, no funds are presently allocated to Project 3DP.
