3D printer jerk acceleration

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.

How to remove Z Seam 3D print

Very intuitively we can deduct from the name where the problem derives, and that is a matter of layer changes. Is this the only thing that matters? No, not really, In fact, the change of layer is at best only 50% of the problem.

How to calculate VREF

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.
