Keith I Myers – 2016-05-17 23:27:16-0400 – Updated: 2016-05-17 23:27:16-0400Here is something that I am printing for a friend of mine ( +Joel Solomon ) and it is looking great. These are 8 bit video game drink coasters.
The coasters are printed out of Wood PLA Filament and take quite a bit of time to print – my print bed is quite large so I am able to do 4 at a time. Unfortunately with the wood, you do need to print a bit slower than normal so each batch of 4 takes around 11 hours.
The base is carbon fiber PLA which looks great with the wood coasters. I will post a few more photos when I have the set complete.Shared with: Public, Keith I Myers, Joel Solomon, David Wille, Dor Kleiman+1’d by: Penny Fletcher, Adam Outler, Robert Hamilton, Un Lo, Hervé-Serge Menyonga, Joseph Cappellino, Jaromir Sir, José Gasteazoro, Dor Kleiman, J Agnew, Master Decker, rick sare almost daily vlog, David Wille, Ben SchoonDavid Wille – 2016-05-18 00:25:14-0400 – Updated: 2016-05-18 18:01:23-0400Looks really great, nice print quality there +Keith I Myers!! The wood is pretty cool man, I’ve got to try that out.
Ps. What 3D Printer is this?Dor Kleiman – 2016-05-18 03:47:36-0400How does wood printing work? David Wille – 2016-05-18 18:19:08-0400+Dor Kleiman 3D printers use filament spools to print. Most commonly the filament is made with PLA & ABS plastic. It has become possible now however to fuse these plastic filaments with other materials like wood, metal, carbon fiber, copper, etc. Filament research is exploding right now all over the world. Many Universities are conducting research into development of new kinds of fused filaments & all new kinds of filaments with entirely different plastics or materials altogether!
3d printing is bringing forth revolutionary new ways for creating objects of all kinds. Along with the material research going on for filaments to use, 3d printing is absolutely going to be the future for the manufacturing of literally everything!

Sort of like fiberglass. Awesome. Adam Outler – 2016-05-19 21:54:05-0400Moar Pix!
