Gyroid infill is another trick to use wisely, which can be really helpful if you want to reinforce the prints without excessive use of material. Moreover, like any natural structure, besides having amazing mechanical properties, it is also beautiful to the eye. In the photos, you can see the harmony of the shapes that gives the feeling of lightness and amazing resistance. This is nature!
Essentially non-planar 3d printing makes your printer move on all 3 axes at the time. When it reaches the concave area the printer will go up and down on the y-axis, following the curve, and it will also move the x and y-axis to create a curved surface, as opposed to using discrete layers in the z-axis.
When it comes to optimizing your 3D printer, one of the aspects to consider is definitely the printing speed. The duration of a print is already eternal, so why not optimize this parameter properly? You may be wondering, “just raise the speed in the slicer”, yes ok you are right. But how far can we raise it without imploding the printer? Take some time and calmly follow these basic concepts related to movement speeds.
Learn how to compile Marlin 2.0 easily with this guide. I will go through all sections and explain every detail on how to configure it properly for the Tevo Tarantula and the new Homers Printers
The literal translation of the term is a voltage reference. Stepper motors drivers have a device designed to maintain an accurate, low noise, constant output voltage. This is the exact description of what the driver does. The driver is the electronic device that takes care of guiding the stepper motor through the translation of the signals(an electric current) that are given to it by a processor.
Even if it’s the most known platform to find STL files for 3D printing it isn’t the only one and for some of you, there are far way better alternatives than Thingiverse. You will find that some will accommodate your needs better.
It’s important these days to help and contribute every way it’s possible to fight against Coronavirus. Lots of makers started printing medical devices to protect the persons that are in the front line.
In this article I will describe the most common issues when printing with these 2 materials and how they react with different buildplates.
Making your miniatures is amazing, I’ve met lots of hobbyists that use 3D printing particularly to create models and paint them. But if you don’t have a resin printer it can be a hard challenge achieving good quality prints…
If you want flawless prints then you need to adjust properly your retraction settings.
This is because the most common aesthetic issues originate from oozing, this effect occurs when the hotend shifts from one place to another letting behind strings on our printed design…
Increasingly, a question arises among makers and in 3D printing communities: Which 3D material is suitable to use regularly for food and beverages?
