    I love him haha! I am making my foundry like his too . And in the past I have always just used sand casting. If you get a fine enough sand you can get all the detail you need. Standard play sand will give you a lot of detail, but if you want to spend a little more you can buy actual casting green sand. The King of Random has some good vids about creating casting molds and goes into good detail. This link pretty much has the steps I always followed when I would cast things: http://www.foundry101.com/new_page_7.htm

    Hi. I work in an equipment factory with machining capabilities that can produce the parts. In the next days I can check how much would it cost. But I've been using the original plastic parts drilled with the round nut for some time. The main problem is the lack of the nozzle itself. Anyone tried to manufacture it?

    Has anyone tried printing Flex Filament through the Cube 3? I found some nice Flex Filament that has a low melting point almost the same as PLA might have to give it a try.
    Sun comes up on Wednesday.

    Problem is that flex filament on bowden setup is really hard to control, and it requires slooooooow printing speeds....
