    Showcase prints?

    Hey! Would be cool to see how your prints have turned out, especially if you've used non new matter store stl-files and / or used some other filament than the new matter one.

    So for the few of you that have received your printers - Please share

    Printed this Frankenstein light switch plate...
    http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:649284

    Printed with Inland silver PLA from MicroCenter.
    Spool fits well on the holder and turns easily. Same size as sample Mew Matter Roll, except deeper (1kg)

    I printed this by uploading the STL to my library, so it used all New Matter settings. Temp was fine.
    I have also printed by uploading GCode from Cura through the desktop utility. Some models I have are support free, and the New Matter slicer added support in the middle of parts that don't need it, making holes for attaching pins difficult to clean.

    I am very happy so far.

    Looks great! Very smooth! Did you sand it?
    Didn't know about Cura, downloading now - Been playing around with tinkercad, will try Cura as well

    The Inland "silver" is pretty much a grey. Hatchbox silver PLA is a bit darker, and more silvery.

    I didn't do any post processing Came off the printer like that. It did have support under the plate, as there is a recess in the middle over the switch, so I removed those, but thats it. I did have to glue back one of the small prongs that broke while removing it from the bed. But that is probably a PLA thing, more than a printer thing. More brittle, and parts made vertically will always be weaker due to the layers.

    Read about Cura that you need to set up your printer's profile with settings for that specific printer. Is this something you needed to do? If so, mind sharing?

    New Matter posted some settings in their FAQs on the website.
    http://support.newmatter.com/

    Basic machine settings to set up the right machine, and Start/End code to add (theres a tab in Cura for that) that adds the same calibration as New Matter software.

    Here is a test part I made to see if the printer could print to its claimed envelope (150mm x 100mm x 125mm).

    The prints definitely can use some tuning. The overall surface quality is kind of like felt.
