3D Printing Stacks Hackaday | Makemetechie.com Summary
- The technique produces one side that isn’t as nice a finish as the other side, but it isn’t bad, and for many applications, you don’t care, anyway.Before you get too excited about your own designs, you might try a simple test file and get your print settings dialed in..
- But if you need to maximize your throughput or make multiple copies of large objects, this might be the technique for you.Looks like an interesting technique that doesn’t require you to do anything strange like, say, waterproof your printer..
- But [Keep Making] wants to encourage you to think in three dimensions and fill up your build volume in the Z axis, as well.When you fill your X and Y axes, it is easy to see how the parts separate..
- I am all of a sudden using half the material and 3/4 or less time.This seems like a good idea but isn’t really in practice, you are greatly increasing the points of failure, all it takes is one to not stick right and the rest is ruined..
- Obviously, if you need just two or three copies of something small, it is easier to step and repeat them across the build surface..
- It isn’t surprising, then, that 3D printing in bulk differs from printing one object at a time..
There is a big difference between building one of something and building, say, 100 of the same item. It isnt surprising, then, that 3D printing in bulk differs from printing one object at a time. Of [+1188 chars]
