3D printing tolerances

Posted 19 Dec 2018 |
3D printing is not a perfect process. As in any other manufacturing system, there are differences between what we design and the physical object we manufacture. These small differences between the computer and the real world are called tolerances.Obtaining a tolerance 0 in the physical world is impossible, that is why there are certain tolerance values ​​that are acceptable and do not affect the functioning of the designed piece. Knowing the ...
If something stands out 3D printing is to be able to reduce costs and manufacturing times compared to traditional processes.

3D Scanner beginners guide

Posted 22 Aug 2018 |
When it comes to printing in 3D it is very likely that we design our own 3D models or download them from the network. But what if we want to print an exact copy of an object from the real world? This is where the 3D scanner comes into play ....
La impresión 3D no solo esta cambiando la vida de la gente, también esta cambiando la vida de los animales. Hoy venimos a hablaros de un proyecto con el que hemos estado colaborando que busca crear prótesis para ayudar a animales y que puedan poder volver a andar, correr, saltar o vivir como debidamente es posible. Un proyecto llamado Photo Cross Corp...
As you will all know in 3D printing, objects are built layer by layer. This implies that each layer supports the next layer. This next layer may not coincide exactly with the previous one, which means that part of the layer remains in the air, that is to say without being supported on the previous layer.There is a point where this is not possible since the upper layers do not have enough support in the lower layers. This happens when we excee ...
When we are used to design for other manufacturing technologies it is very likely that we do not take into account certain aspects of the design that can make our 3D printed parts improve their finish and functionality.That's why in this blog article we're going to collect 6 design tricks that will help you get the most out of your 3D printer. ...
The other day opened a debate in the official Telegram group of 3Dfils about which models were the most difficult to print and get a perfect finish. We wanted to compile 10 models that we find very complicated to print. Can you with them? ...
Just like when we print on paper we need a file that contains the information of the text to be printed, when we do it with our 3D printer we need a file that contains the three-dimensional information that will be reproduced.This is where the STL files come in . These files contain information about a three-dimensional object. Unlike other 3D files , this format only contains information about the geometry of the surfaces of the object, leav ...
The PLA filament is the most consumed material for 3D printing .
