Infill Hash
GXR A12, 50mm (35equiv), ISO 200, 1/125s, f/2.5, 2012-09-02

This is worth mentioning. The picture here is a partial print of the extruder body. The original extruder body I got wasn’t the greatest print and it’s a high wear part so I decided to print a new one. This is a failed attempt, I forget why I aborted this particular print but it shows the infill hash well. To reduce print time and save plastic the printer can be set to only partially fill the inside of “solid” objects, this is a 50% fill. You can also see the solid border around the infill.

Thanks, for your Printrbot info. I forwarded them to a fitter/machinist friend interested in getting a 3D printer.

One thing I would say, is if your friend is willing to spend a little more and is only interested in the printing and not the exercise of assembling and tuning the printer then they should look at this one: http://store.makerbot.com/replicator-404.html
