What are 3d printer components? From which parts is our 3D printer composed? This short guide will expose the individual components, where to find them for replacement and where to locate them in the machine.

3D Printer Components: EXTRUDER
First we find the extruder block. In the majority of cases it is precisely in this part where the majority of problems and failures in general occur.
Here are the components of the extruder:
3D Printer Components: PRINT BED
The printing bed is essential for the printing of ABS and more generally of all exotic hydrocarbon-based filaments. It is better if it can be heated quickly up to at least 110°. Here it is described:
3D Printer Components: FRAME
The frame is the framework of the printer, a good frame, with the same installed components can determine the difference between a mediocre print and a good print. Here it is presented:
3D Printer Components: MOTION AXIS
Sand the frame represents the framework of the printer, then the motors, belts and pulleys for a medical parallel are the muscles, tendons and cartilage. So they must be kept in perfect working order to make our printer an athlete.
3D Printer Components: ELECTRONIC
The electronics, the brain of the printer must be treated with care, more than all the other components is subject to mood swings. Unfortunately, with electronics you need luck. Above all failed electronics can give many headaches.
Electronic is composed by Mainboard, drivers and display:
3D Printer Components: POWER SUPPLY
In conclusion, last but not least, we find the power supply. Here it is described:
