The hotend. Operation and thermal performance

The hotend is, together with the extruder, one of the most important parts of a FFF 3D printer. Although at first glance it may appear to be one of the simplest elements, it is one of the most complex, as it has to achieve optimum thermal performance.

How to parameterise and optimise a resin

Setting the printing parameters correctly is a complex process that requires several trials. Values such as exposure (both 1st layer and the rest), speed and delay time will have to be changed several times until the right ones are found. The use of calibration models will help in assessing the quality and accuracy of these parameters.

Maintenance and conservation of resins

Light, temperature, oxygen and humidity are elements that affect the correct preservation of resins. It is advisable to store it in the container supplied by the manufacturer when not in use, and at a temperature below 20ºC, is recommended. In the case of resins with a biocompatibility certificate, special recommendations should be followed.

SLS Printing: Fundamentals and functioning

SLS (Selective Laser Sintering) technology uses powder as the printing material. The powder is spread in thin layers and the laser selectively "burns" the design into the layers. Some of the advantages offered by this 3D printing technology are high precision, isotropy of the prints, no need for supports, a great finish and a wide range of materials available for SLS 3D printing.

Preservation of 3D printing materials

The final quality of the printed parts is strongly influenced by the quality of the raw material used in the production of the filament, as well as by its conservation. This is because the more homogeneous and constant the filament properties are, the more uniform the extrusion will be and the better surface quality the final part will have.
