Single layer raft on UP!

The UP! software doesn't allow for raft smaller than 2mm. But you can still disable it.

Compared to other slicers I have used (Kisslicer, Skeinforge) the UP! raft is very thick !

The UP! raft structure is made of tunnels and so far it has proved to be efficient. But making such a thick raft is a big waste of material ! (could it be a commercial strategy ?)

Let's see how to print with just a single layer raft...

Building UP! a new filament spool holder

One of the thing I liked on the different videos of the UP! I've seen is it's original filament unrolling system. It used a very clever system with a dedicated motor that could free some filament from the spool when needed. It seems that this feature has disappeared, or maybe it's an option.

The fact is that the UP! I'm testing doesn't come with it and the way the spool gets hold could be improved...

So I decided to build up a better spool holder.

Everybody get UP!

I have the opportunity to test a UP! printer from PP3DP.
In the next days/weeks I will tell you what I think about it...

But now I'd like to show you my first print with the UP!
It's a case I designed for my Raspberry Pi...
