Jerry Snee, “Chief Squidgeter,” and Sean Snee, COO and Senior Vice-President for all engineering, are working together with the Squidget team to create a safe and noiseless alternative to the most disruptive and potentially self-harming fidgeting habits. It is a much sought after and preferred choice to other fidgeting toys currently on the market and deemed disruptive by teachers. [Read more…]
Improving Her Passion with 3D Printing
Rosalee Ramer started driving monster trucks professionally at age 14. Now, at age 19, she is pursuing her Mechanical Engineering degree at Georgia Tech, and hopes to use it to improve her monster truck’s capabilities.
Rosalee Ramer is a lot of things: a daughter, friend, college student, and role model, who holds the title as the youngest professional female monster truck driver in the world. [Read more…]
Printing with Ninjatek Cheetah Flexible Filament
Sometimes, your 3D printing project requires more flexibility than you get when using ABS and PLA filaments. For those projects, we suggest using Ninjatek Cheetah Flexible Filament. It’s available in several colors and works great with the Afinia H-Series 3D printers.
Here is an example of an R/C car tire, printed in the color “water.” The tire was printed in shell mode on the Afinia H480, and is soft and flexible in order to handle the bumps it encounters during off-road R/C action! [Read more…]
Introducing New Graphene Enhanced PLA Filament
We are excited to announce the new addition of graphene enhanced PLA filament to the collection of filament options on our store site.
The new filament comes in graphite gray and features enhanced thermal stability, print quality, and first layer and Z-axis adhesion. With these features, the graphene enhanced filament is great for use in industrial applications, bringing increased strength to industrial 3D-printed parts. Users will also benefit from reduced shrinkage and warpage for increased part accuracy. [Read more…]
