3D Print Timelapses for May 2020

Here's a compilation of the 3D print timelapses I did for May.

All 3 busts were designed by David Östman and can be found on MyMiniFactory.

All 3 were printed on my Prusa I3MK2.5 with various PLA filaments.

3D Printing Timelapse Rose & Vase

Happy Mother's Day! My mother generally thinks flowers are a waste of money since they die so soon. Totally an Asian thing isn't it? So my solution was to 3D print her a rose and vase that will last much much longer. 

Printed on my Prusa I3 MK2.5

Rainbow Vases!

I recently bought some rainbow filament to try out, mainly because I wanted to print some vases and get a cool color gradient effect. And it totally works, as long as you're using over 10 meters of filament. My first print came out in one solid color as it only used almost 9 meters of filament. But the three print above all used somewhere between 12 & 15 meters of filament which provided some nice color changes.

I used Silk Multcolored PLA filament from Amazon and printed these at .20mm layer height at 215 C for the first layer, 210 C the rest, bed temp at 60 C on my Prusa I3 MK2.5. And if you're interested in these vases, you can check them out on Thingiverse:

This is definitely the shiniest filament I've used and I have some silk gold PLA as well that I'm going to try out next so stay tuned!
