What are some of the most popular 3D printer parts?2022-12-06T18:39:22+11:00

There are a variety of companies in the 3D printing space producing many different machines. While they are complex many printers do have components they share in common.

Motors, belts, pulleys, bearings, linear rails and many others parts are frequently used as the foundation for the kinematic (motion) systems that many printers use.

Print surfaces are another essential component as every printer needs a surface to print onto that will hold the part in place during the printing process. These include glass, buildtak and the more advanced flexible spring steel sheets that are coated with a PEI film or PEI powder coating.

Hotends – every filament-based printer requires a hotend to feed the filament into which heats up and melts the filament as it is being printed.

Extruders – the extruder is responsible for pulling the filament from the spool and feeding it into the hotend to be melted and deposited during the printing process extruders are available for either a bowden or direct drive configuration.

Mechanical calibration generally only needs to be tuned once and will stay the same as long as everything is fastened tightly.

Brand new belts can sometimes ‘break in’ and stretch a little during their first 10-20 hours of use, once tension is readjusted once after this period they should not change again.

What are some of the most popular types of 3D printers?2022-12-06T18:39:22+11:00

Some of the most popular types of 3D printers include FFF (fused filament fabrication) printers, SLA (stereolithography) printers, and DLP (digital light processing) printers.

FDM/FFF printers are generally the most common. While some SLA printers have come down in price a lot, the materials required for use as well as the hazards posed by the resins they use make them less appropriate for a person that is new to 3D printing. Filament-based printers are just as affordable, come in many varieties and have significantly cheaper materials.

What is the difference between an FFF and an SLA printer?2022-12-06T18:39:22+11:00

An FFF printer uses filaments made of plastic that are melted and extruded through a nozzle in a layer by layer fasion, to create the printed object. An SLA printer uses a laser to cure a photosensitive resin, layer by layer, to create the desired object.

What is the difference between an FFF and a DLP printer?2022-12-06T18:39:22+11:00

An FFF printer uses filaments of plastic that are melted and extruded through a nozzle to create the desired object. A DLP printer projects an image of the desired object onto a build platform, curing a photosensitive resin with each exposure.

Do I need to use a special filament with my 3D printer?2022-12-06T18:39:22+11:00

The type of filament you need to use with your 3D printer will depend on the type of machine you have as well as your specific use case for the part being printed.
