Never Jet Hot

Curator of Flotsam. Goes off on tangents.

3D Print resembles Overcooked Grilled Cheese

1 min read

I was puzzled by the odd “puddle” base and the bubbly texture when we printed this substitute keyboard key. Then, I realized that it reminds me of the time I cooked a grilled cheese sandwich too hot and wound up with a similar situations. So we’ll try it at maybe 180 celsius instead of 190. Maybe we’ll get some orange filament and just make some tomato soup to go with?

UPDATE: I am new at this! The puddle base is called a “brim” and helps the object you are printing adhere to the glass for that crucial first layer. I printed one at 195 today and it turned out solid looking, unfortunately the microphone symbol on top of the key is hard to see. Perhaps I should print a “blank” key and then laser-engrave the top.
