Be Safe This Fourth! Flames and ABS / PLA Don’t Mix!
With so many amazing resolution and reliability advancements in MakerBotting technology, it can be easy to forget that 3D printed objects don’t belong in every kind of application.
Please do not use ABS or PLA near any kind of heat source or flame including fireworks or even incense. ABS will catch fire and keep burning with a thick black smoke. 1 2 PLA becomes very soft even at low-ish heat and can deform and melt, losing it’s stability and structural integrity. 3
So, this Fourth of July, please be safe and keep your awesome MakerBotted goodies away from flame or heat!
Remember, only you can prevent bunny fires.
That said, Tealids’ incense holder IS pretty awesome.
