Printing 3D HDPE

We did it!  Today Big Red printed multiple layers in HDPE.  Great job everyone, you guys have worked so hard.  However, we still have obstacles to over come. 

In the mean time, for all of you who had to miss it, below are two videos and some pictures of the day's events.

Hot HDPE is some stinky stuff.  
Only our beloved President had an appropriate respirator for the gases.

  1. Nice! Might not be a bad idea to post the pics/vids to the WOOF Facebook page as well to show off to our fans. Gotta keep those respirator companies in business after all.
