I don't usually print ABS, PLA has been more consistent. None of my printers have enclosures right now so I've been waiting to print anything other than a couple small things with ABS.

You don't really need the enclosure if it's something this size (I guess it's supposed to be handsize more or less). The important is really the kind of bed you have and if you have PEI or something similar on it, compare to glue, tape, spray, etc... the PEI is magic to hold the ABS while printing ^^ Trust me I've had to print without for a month or two and when I could finally put PEI... it was really like magic happened! Sticking with 0 problem and printing in good quality again Smile
But for sure ABS can be a bit more tricky to get the right settings I guess!
Good luck anyway Smile


I think I got some of that to try awhile ago but I din't have ABS filament at the time so it got packed away. I'll have to see if I can dig it out, thanks for the tip!

Attached the hose connectors to the belt using 1 inch webbing. I used a heavy duty singer sewing machine to attach the webbing.

Yes it still needs to be soaked in vinegar, I just haven't been to the store yet.

I started tailoring my version one and adding the extra seams. I added false seams to the pants, top and sleeves. They will be actual seams in the final version which will help with tailoring that one. The fit is better now and I'm about ready to take it apart to make my new pattern. I added the seam for the front yoke. The sleeve seams start at the front and back yoke.

I also soaked the belt buckle in vinegar. I took it off completely so I could fix the attachment.

I'm in the process of sewing everything back together, should be done this weekend.

But thanks to Kelly Marie Tran I now know how Rose ties her hair back. She is using electrical wire!
