Black as night, Evil as Darthvader!

Afternoon on this glorious sunny day!

i thought i would start printing with my black ABS to see whgat it is like. and results are good!

Unfortunatly i have had a few flossing issues - but i will sort that out later.

The first thing i needed to do was to feed through the black abs. This would be odd as i have been using white ABS so it was interesting to see a fhite filament turn grey as it mixed with the black ABS.

The next thing to do ws to use my Darf Vader i had previously Skeinforged... sadly i had deleted it when i was sorting out my hard drive, thereofre i opened skeinforge and redid it. Sadly skeinforge seems to get stuck and freeze half way through the process, therefore i tried my already skeinforged piece - the clean whistle.

First results seem to be good except the raft came off the build base, therefore i had to abbort, but it looks good so far!

It was a good opportunity to see the 'pea' of the whistle up close...

Anyways i need to close down now as im going to Portsmouth for my dentist appointment tomorrow! NHS for ya! cant loose an NHS dentist! (Im currently in plymouth!)
