I needed a solution to ship tiny SMT parts... So I thought what a better way to use those last two turns on the real of blue filament, and print out some tiny shipping boxes! So I put my square box mastery skills into play....

EDIT:

So now I spent the entire time printing in ABS... for the filament I have is PLA, which I have not setup any profiles for yet :roll:

First prints in PLA. Seems a lot more "blobby" than ABS.. but I never printed in PLA before anyway.. so might take some fiddling get the profiles correct..

Experimenting with the dual head printing... First attempt on the left there was a lot of oozing, but it was mostly rectified in the second print..
