  • Maritime: Yep that's where there is a honey comb of plastic that can break up from age and then you get all the wrinkled vinyl mess
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:24:43
  • Maritime: both my doors looked like that, the shit gets brittle and when you pound on the panel to get it seated at the window you can crack it all. I found out the hard way
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:25:43
  • Kamn: its been too many years since I pulled a door panel off a civic.....dont recall the honey comb plastic
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:25:44
  • Tune-A-Fishİ: yep its like a foam base honeycomb and it smashes but you can replace it with better after market pannels
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:26:05
  • Maritime: It may not be honey comb per say but similar and its kind of soft when new but gets brittle as it ages
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:26:33
  • Tune-A-Fishİ: some sound deadening shite
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:27:28
  • Maritime: When I crashed mine and had to replace the drivers window and get the regulator and crank adjusted I was pulling it off and on over and over and it didn't survive
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:27:31
  • Maritime: I didn't really care though as it was my beater commuter car
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:28:01
  • Maritime: Just read the install and setup for the Printer,. Need to find a star wars model to do the first print with LOL
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:28:50
  • advCo: Mike, check out this site: [link]
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:30:25
  • Maritime: Thanks. I found another like that and a free 3D file for the McCree blaster he needs to make for his cosplay suit. I think we will be printing up a storm on X-Mass day
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:40:14
  • advCo: Its a kit right?
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:45:43
  • Maritime: Man I got to learn some stuff from the looks of it. Better study up a bit so I don't look like a doofus on Xmass morning
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:45:45
  • Maritime: The printer?
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:45:54
  • advCo: Yeah
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:46:28
  • advCo: Like you have to assemble it?
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:46:34
  • Maritime: Yep but barely
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:46:43
  • advCo: Just make sure you get the bed height and corner offsets setup, and the backlash set right and you'll be good to go
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:47:18
  • Maritime: I looked at more complicated kits that might have save 50 bucks but this is just 6 screws. and some wire connections. Less than 10 min and i read the manual so it looks simple
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:47:31
  • Maritime: Yep, Then figure out how to cut and load the 3d files and start printing
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:48:11
  • advCo: Yeah once you get past the setup its pretty straightforward
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:49:54
  • Maritime: Going to have to set up a table in the basement with a fan and window for the smell I think. Jill doesn't like smelly stuff in the house. So I am glad you can just load the file to the SD and print without PC connection
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:49:54
  • advCo: I use PLA only and you can barely smell it even up close
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:50:18
  • Maritime: I read that so we should be ok then
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:50:39
  • Maritime: I want to be able to do ABS for some things and that stinks. I got a KG of PLA to go with the printer so we can use that to start
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:51:17
  • Maritime: That site has a lot of neat things to 3D print
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:52:20
  • advCo: I haven't tried ABS yet, waiting to run out of the PLA i have when I bought the machine. I got 5 free rolls
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:52:26
  • Maritime: Cool, what Machine do you have?
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:52:51
  • Maritime: ABS is a little sturdier, so want to be able to use it for possible bike bits and bobs
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:53:32
  • Maritime: Need to dust off my CAD modeling skills though
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:53:49
  • advCo: I've found from trial and error that its not so much the material as the direction of the layers
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:54:26
  • advCo: for strength. think of it like wood grain, except much more pronounced.
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:55:08
  • Maritime: Cool. that comes with practice in the setting up the slices etc.
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:55:08
  • advCo: [link]  - thats the printer I've got
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:55:14
  • Maritime: Gotcha
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:55:19
  • advCo: Yeah its fun though. I've been 3d modeling for about 10 years now so its pretty cool that the technology has gotten affordable
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:56:47
  • advCo: also checkout - a print farm they have the capability to do large scale prints and metal
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:57:13
  • Maritime: Neat, that one is a good price too.
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:57:38
  • advCo: Yeah i had a deal for the basic that came with 5 spools
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:57:55
  • advCo: Took me a long ass time to get it to print right since their software is still in beta
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:58:08
  • Maritime: Didn't check shipping though. that made the difference on the one I picked as it was free
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:58:17
  • Maritime: flat box vs a cube
    Dec 07, 2016, 14:58:40
  • advCo: I think it was free when I bought it. Not sureabout Canada though
    Dec 07, 2016, 15:01:13
  • advCo: I just printed a bunch of sliders for the table saw fence
    Dec 07, 2016, 15:01:25
  • Maritime: Cool, I am sure I will be finding all kinds of things to print. I had the one I bought shipped to Maine and will pick it up. Save almost 150 over shipping to Here
    Dec 07, 2016, 15:06:28
  • Maritime: I got in all in delivered 15 mins away for 400 CAD to order it here it was 500 CAD and 50 shipping.
    Dec 07, 2016, 15:07:23
  • Maritime: We had a budget of 500 CAD so the 100 I saved on the printer I had 8 GIG of memory added to the order for the PC
    Dec 07, 2016, 15:08:12
  • Maritime: Plus a roll of PLA
    Dec 07, 2016, 15:08:23
  • Maritime: So he gets his PC memory doubled as well
    Dec 07, 2016, 15:08:43
  • Maritime: His Aunt pitched in half the cost to make it happen.
