Flexible Filament Printer Settings For Best Prints

When we talk about 3D printing materials plastics like PLA(polylactic acid), ABS (acrylonitrile butadiene styrene) pop up in our heads, but the one thing which is the same is that they are rigid. Fortunately, we have “flexible filament”, as the name suggests that it is malleable or not rigid i.e., can be bent into any …

Solving Bed Adhesion In Flexible Filaments

Solving Bed Adhesion In Flexible Filaments | Best Tips

Flexible filaments are plastics with rubbery properties like TPE(Thermoplastic elastomers), TPU(Thermoplastic Polyurethane), or TPC(Thermoplastic Copolyester). These are most commonly used for automotive parts, household appliances, or medical devices. The filaments are usually soft and elastic and can thus withstand high loads. These filaments are a great choice for gaskets or bumpers.  At times, there occurs …

FDM Calibration Print

FDM Calibration Print | Setup First Print For FDM Printer

Currently, many FDM technology-based 3d printer companies send their printers with pre-calibration. But they still require some calibration before the first print. Although if we design a custom-made 3d printer we could do both calibrations at once and save our time. Here we will discuss each aspect of calibrating related and required for 3d printer. …
