Looking for the best prices on 3D printer kits and accessories in Australia?

With the recent boom in at-home 3D printing across the globe, 3D printing has become a new hobby for people of all ages, from journeyman hobbyists to professional studios and industries, but even then, many people are unaware of what goes into 3D printing with some thinking you simply buy a printer and that’s that.

3D printers require a host of different parts and mechanisms to keep them efficient and to increase the life span of the printers, this can go as far down as to ‘simple’ nuts and bolts and in some cases require some technical and mechanical knowledge of 3D printers to keep them operating an optimal level for years to come.

There are numerous printers and printer kits available on the market that range from hobby grade to professional-grade as well as a whole host of information and technology that come with it that include both hardware and software, lets have a look below at some of the reasons it may pay off in the long run to buy quality professional parts.

They Last Longer.

Just like any machine, a 3D Printer is an assortment of various moving parts and mechanisms, as such, they may require changing, fixing, or general troubleshooting, much like a car tire may need new lug nuts even the smallest part of a 3D printer is crucial to its efficiency and longevity.

For example, sure you could fit plastic lug nuts on a tire, but they’re gonna break pretty quickly and lead to some series damage, the same principle applies to 3D printers, buying inexpensive parts often leads to inefficient production and end up damaging your entire system, suddenly what was meant to save you money, is now costing you more in the long run.

Now, we’re not talking about shelling out thousands for parts, we’re talking about sourcing and acquiring professional parts that not only help your 3D Printers achieve their maximum optimal function, but also work with your 3D Printer kit to ensure that every part is working in harmony with each other, as we’ve said above, you may have a Lamborghini, but if you put plastic lug nuts on it, you’re gonna be taking the bus pretty soon, that’s why it is of the utmost importance to find
high-quality parts for your printing kit.

However, while there may be some guesswork involved in 3D Printing, there are some parts of 3D Printers that are not, it’s also important to recognize these when it comes to keeping your projects flowing smoothly, the most important of these is the filament all those parts will be using to create your projects.

Strength, Flexibility, and Durability.

These three words are key when deciding what 3D Printer Filaments to use in your kit, much like parts, it often pays off in the long run to buy quality filaments and to do a little bit of research on which ones to grab, unlike the moving parts of a 3D Printer, the filament is the bread and butter of your machine and can be changed to different types depending on your desired outcome of the project.

When it comes to the “champion” of 3d printing filaments, most will say polylactic acid (PLA) is hands down the winner, PLA can be used for numerous 3D printing projects and is widely considered to be the best for value in terms of strength, flexibility, and durability, however, while it often considered the

best, it actually may not be when it comes to your specific project, while PLA is great for hobby crafting and making visual pieces, it’s durability is rather low and not generally used for things that serve a purpose in day to day life.

However, there is another type of filament that is, Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) is found in numerous household items, toys, and gadgets, ever wondered why stepping on a lego is so painful? You can blame ABS for that, ABS is noted for its astounding durability and modest flexibility, in reading this you may be thinking “doesn’t that mean ABS is better?” in theory that is true, but just as it is important to have high-quality parts for your printer, it is also important to have some research under your belt.

While ABS appears to be the strongest contender in the filament department, it actually needs to be printed at a higher temperature, a much higher temperature, PLA is printed a rather cozy 60 degrees celsius on the print bed and between 180 – 230°C as a standard print temperature, ABS, on the other hand, comes in at a scorching 80 to 110 degrees celsius on the print bed and a blistering 210 – 250°C standard print temperature.

This is why parts and knowledge are so crucial to 3D Printing and the longevity and output of your 3D Printer kit and its output, even down to simple things like bearings and what filaments to choose, there is an entire world out there when it comes to 3D Printing, thankfully, however, we have numerous years of experience to help you get through these obstacles in a timely and professional manner with our world-class customer service team and products you can trust every time you shop with us.

When we bought our first off the shelf 3D Printer in 2019, like many others, it wasn’t without its shortfalls.
