Temperature



Enclosures Necessary for ABS to avoid warping (required ventilation?), but not PLA


Materials
Filaments PLA the most common

Additional Techniques
Improving Surfaces
– Combing
– 999 top vs 000 base


Print Efficiency
Injection Moulds; Poured Resins and Vaccum Boxes



Modeling Recomended Prints
