3D Printer Filament

A few weeks ago we ran out of 3D printer filament for the Ultimaker after Nick printed a large bust of Admiral Ackbar - the print failed. (Plastic filament is what most 3D printers use to print objects.)

So we ordered some more from OZ RepRap Supplies. It's a 2.3 kg roll of blue. It took a week and a bit to arrive, but the quality is great. With the old grey filament that came with the printer, every second print was a failure. We haven't had a single failure with this stuff.

The next project is a desktop trebuchet! I'm thinking of building a competing design and we can have a war.
