About billyd

Makerbot R2 heavily modified with full enclosure and all aluminum upgrades from plastic. Also heated glass build plate. Can print in ABS, PLA, or Nylon. Use Garnier Fructese number 5 extreme hold hairspray on the glass for holding parts in place. 60 degrees C for PLA and 100 Degrees C for ABS. Outstanding. No more tape!

I use Keycreater for design work, and Simplify 3D for slicing and printing. Sailfish firmware on my R2. If you have a replicator and you aren't using sailfish and simplify 3D you are missing out. Check it out. Amazing software. Way beyond makerware. Best $140 I ever spent wrt to 3D printing.
