Exploring the Spongy Properties of Foaming PLA @CNC_Kitchen
In this episode of CNC Kitchen, Stefan does some experimenting with Colorfabb Light-Weight PLA filament.
LW-PLA is a type of PLA filament that creates microscopic bubbles in the material during the printing process. This can lower the density of your prints by almost 60%. Stefan tests for printability and strength of the LW-PLA at different degrees of foaming to determine which applications this material might be useful for.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
