Leveling and calibration of the 3D printer base

Users of home 3D printers (FFF/FDM) can often find problems of various types, which may be due to poor filaments, improper printing parameters, poorly-suited conditions for the location of 3D printers (like humid environments, cold or drafts) and lack of maintenance, and calibration of the 3D printer.

Graphene in 3D printing: A world of possibilities

A year ago, and after more than three years of research and development, the world of 3D printing marveled at the world's first graphene conductive filament manufactured by the US company Graphene 3D Lab. Graphene filament is already a reality in FDM/FFF 3D printing which makes possible a world of possibilities.

3D printing costs

One of the first big questions that comes up when starting in 3D printing is; How much does it cost to make a piece in 3D? Well, let's try to explain the main costs that must be attributed to the printing of a piece to calculate its actual cost of impaction.

Densities and lengths in 3D printing filaments

One of the main doubts in the day to day among users of 3D printing is to know the density of the filament that they will use to know how much material they will consume, and therefore how much material they will need to print a piece in 3D. The (absolute) density is a scalar quantity referred to the amount of mass in a given volume of a substance.

How is it possible to avoid jams in the 3d printer extruder

The main areas of an extruder are the heating block and the dissipation area, although these are formed in turn by several parts. To understand the basic operation of the extrusion process of the filaments in 3D printers, it is essential to understand the functionality of both areas.

The importance of 3D printers lubrication

In the FDM 3D print the correct lubrication of the moving parts of the 3D printer is critical because it can directly affect the final quality of the printed pieces. If the rods or bearings are poorly lubricated 3D printer, the print carriage may tend to move to blows and generate an annoying noise. In this way you lose accuracy in positioning the print head.

Reflector-o-Lay: The first reflective filament for 3D printing

The prestigious engineer Kai-Parthy has passed a new barrier in the world of 3D printing filament to achieve develops the first reflective filament for 3D printing FDM. Reflect-o-Lay filament is created relying on the principle of retro-reflection of light.

Questions about the usual temperature and print speed of PLA and ABS

Since most users know 3D printing, one of the main parameters that directly affects the finished parts made with 3D printers FDM is the print speed. So the faster print speed will get worse finish and the smaller the better finish. Therefore, the finish can claim to be directly proportional to the time of printing.
