The part of the extruder that has all the impression of being a heat sink is just that! Its function is to keep the wire cold. The contact with the hot end if not mitigated could melt the wire for several centimeters and then block the extrusion process. The radiator must be accompanied by a […]
Category in which they are tested, reviewed, described various upgrades that can be applied to 3D printing. These are electronic, electrical or even printed objects. Anything as long as our prints are better.
In this section we will analyze level probes, extruders, feeders, drivers. In reality, any electronic and mechanical component that can help eliminate problems and raise quality.
The “bulkiest” part of the extruder consists of the motor and wire pusher combination. Therefore these are the ghost of printer, you can see any problem here directly on the print! Motor of wire pusher If we talk about motors of a 3D printer we are talking about stepper motors. What differentiates them from other […]
Present on “more complete” printers and optional on “basic” kit, the fanduct for cooling the freshly extruded filament is a fundamental component to obtain excellent prints. Ventilation is very important to instantly cool the filament and thus prevent it from deforming while it cools itself. The lack of cooling can lead to overheating problems already […]
The printing bed (or buiding surface) is the physical place where the filament is physically laid and where our creations come to life, can vary in size. Among the smallest we can get to have plates of 10×10 cm up to the largest on the market that are around 40×40 cm, with a maximum spread […]
The frame is a bit like the structure of the printer, there are a lot of them, varying in design and materials, technology of functioning and more. At first glance, even without being mechanical experts, you realize that printers differ from each other in terms of construction technology. In this article we review all the […]
3D printer axis movement is done by stepper motors, pulleys, belts and threaded rods. Components of 3d printer. Axis Movement: Stepper motor If we talk about motors of a 3D printer we are talking about electric stepper motors. What differentiates them from other types of electric motors is the ability to rotate their shaft in […]
The 3D printer electronic consists of a motherboard, motor control drivers and a control screen. COME BACK TO 3D PRINTER COMPONENTS Electronic: Motherboard The motherboards mounted on the printers are many and very different, many manufacturers produce the priorities. The in-house production of the motherboard ensures that the electronics do exactly what they need to […]
The power supply feed energy to the printer, used for moving and “thinking” parts, electronics and mechanics. It is a component to be kept in perfect efficiency and fundamental for the correct and long-lasting operation of the machine, in this Guide we explain how to test the outputs of the power supply to ensure that […]
