ABS

Complete ABS Profile Print Settings

By | 3D Printing, Cura, FIlaments, Rapid Prototyping, Software | No Comments
Through trial and error we have slowly honed in our profile settings for different 3D printing materials.   This is our second profile tutorial and today we will be taking a look at the settings and profiles that have worked for us while printing in ABS.

Further than just explaining preferred temperature settings, we will be taking an indepth look at advanced support and infill settings, as well as many other factors that go into making a clean and successful print.

ABS is quite unique to PLA for a few reasons.  The first is the difficulty to print.  Small items are quite easy, and the printer can handle ABS without any issues.  The problem arises when printing large parts.  Since ABS has a high shrinkage rate which causes warping, we will only print larger ABS jobs on our TAZ5 with our proprietary enclosure or on our fully enclosed 3DGenie.

Technology Update: Filament Monitor

By | Hardware, Rapid Prototyping, Software | No Comments

Since releasing our technology and innovation infographic a few weeks ago we have been hard at work to display some of these hardware and software advancements in action.  The first to display is our revolutionary filament monitor.

The filament monitor senses the physical position of the filament to provide closed loop motion control for the extrusion axis when used with our encoded stepper motors.  This provides a solution for filament jams, material shearing and under/over extrusion.  This monitor also provides feedback for automated inventory control systems, including our RFID material tracking module.
