Topic: Coex3D filaments
so while at the Milwaukee Maker Faire we got our hands on some samples from Wisconsin based Coex3D - really nice folks, too.
In all I got 5 different colors in ABS - I think Azerate got 6, one of them being PLA...
as with any new filament, I broke out the calipers and started measuring to get average diameters...
Black = 1.77mm average
Grey = 1.79mm average
Pink = 1.80mm average
Red = 1.82mm average
Turquoise = 1.77mm average
All a little on the large side for a 1.75mm filament
loaded up the black and did my usual calibration cubes, no problems, got it dialed in pretty well and did a test print of the Companion Cube w/flat bottom that can be found on thingiverse. The resulting print looks quite nice.
a comparison with one done in Octave green...
so I am currently running a print that I plan to use all 5 colors on to get an idea of how well each prints. That print is an Advanced Marvin at double scale. Just finished swapping out to the 3rd color and so far so good.
will post a picture when completed.
the red is a bit too on the orange side - the color could be better, but it seems to be printing well enough
the pink is a nice shade - Bazooka bubble gum pink is what i would call it - that is what it reminds me of, anyway.
SD4 #2 - basically the same as SD4 #1 now...
