3D Printer inserts

January 26, 2016

I have been having a few issues with printed inserts on my nas case. Today I was working on the latest print and sure enough, the guides just came off. I have just gotten a few set screws that I had ordered and I ended up trying one in the place of where the guide was. It was smaller in diameter but once I got to all four it worked just fine in helping me align the top piece. I also just learned about what are called PEM inserts. Check these out, they are pretty neat.

Another blog post I just found which looks really neat. This sort of component will really give those tough to keep together components a whole new life and look.
