PP3DP Ball Bearing

Can anyone find the PP3DP Ball Bearing? I found it on Thingiverse and printed it out about a month ago and it seems I didn't save the file. I have looked everywhere and I cant find it now. I even remember it had instructions with layer thickness settings etc. I wonder what happened to it?

Re: Printed toys: Safe for infants?

My 1 year old niece loves the pp3dp ball bearing! It makes a little noise and has been very durable.

Re: Improvements I've made in the last year

Thanks for all your hard work! I have been working on a couple of different designs to build a similar part. Are you going to upload the new cooling shroud to thingiverse? After your positive results I am really eager to try this.

Re: UP! Canadian Dealer

I have worked with a good number of the other units on the market and though you can get some very good results from them I think it would be safe to say they are not as consistent. I am very happy with my UP! and it will print almost anything I ask it to. It is not quite as good as the Stratasys sy...

Re: Improvements I've made in the last year

I am very interested in getting the upgraded extruder mount. I would expect it to be a very good upgrade. I was wandering if you had gotten feedback from Edward or any one else from PP3DP? I would expect they would be able to leverage their manufacturing capabilities to offer these parts as an optio...

Re: UP! Canadian Dealer

I believe the dealer in Canada is the same dealer here in the states. I believe they had a different address but the same phone number. I don't think I got much response by email but they were responsive by phone. I don't know how big they are but I called 6 or more times over a period of a couple o...

Re: Question for existing UP users

If you want I can print the same files and then you can have a true comparison. The material properties are a little different between UP! and Stratasys but for many parts the UP! compares very well. It just depends what you are making.

Re: Up or Thing o Matic?

I spent weeks and weeks researching different printers, pluses and minuses, etc. I chose the UP!. I spent time with the Thing-O-Matic and there are definately some things I like. Same for BFB 3000, Makergear etc. The reasons I chose the UP! are below. Print quality! I work with a Stratasys machine a...

Re: Request for features in the UP software.

This is an old thread but hopefully this is the best place to post a couple of ideas. I have been surprised what the software is capable of and I have to say I am pretty impressed. There do seem to be a couple of things missing that I think would be easy to add. 1: Re-size is a great feature. Add a ...

Re: raft print problem

I received my new UP!Plus a couple of days ago and on the Fast print setting with a layer thickness of .35 I see the same behavior. As mentioned above the next layer prints smooth and if you were not watching it, you would never know it happened.
