I’ve been using my 3D printer all the time since I got it as a birthday present. I can just send it 3D models from my computer and it will print anything, as long as I have filaments to feed through the printer. The 3D printer filaments can really run out in a short amount of time if you aren’t keeping track of how much you are using. In the first couple of weeks I had with the printer, I went through all of the filament that came with it. I printed a lot of small items based on cartoon characters.
I had to order some more filament online if I wanted to continue using the printer. I thought about using a different type of plastic in the place of the filament, but I wasn’t sure if it would melt correctly, and I didn’t want to break the machine that I only had for a couple of weeks. (more…)
