SV3DPrinter and our friends together we are learning about 3D printing since 2014. 3D printing started long before SV3DPrinter. Now it’s time to take a brief test about the 3D printer and their anatomy.
According to the comments and Thomas Sanladerer I am using some part to write my post so, we can learn more about the 3D printing and vocabulary,”
An “extruder” is the thing that converts feed material to usable output, the entire machine at the highest level, or just the part that does the final output at the lowest level. So, in minimal terms, only the “hot-end” does any “extrusion”, specifically the nozzle.
The thing that pushes the filament should more properly be called a “feeder” or just “the feed”, and includes the entire path between the spool (material source) and the hot-end (conversion to output).
If you start with the plastic beads, then 3D printing can be viewed as a double-extrusion process: Once to make the thick filament, then again to make the thin lines used to form the printed part.
Two different kinds of feeder are needed (generally a screw for beads vs. a hobbed gear for filament), but the hot-ends are remarkably similar. The extruder is the system/assembly from the feeder or driver to the hot end all encompassed. the feeder is a component of the extruder at the hot end is a component of the extruder. V-slot bearings as an alternative to linear bearings. Bridges are unsupported horizontal structures. The “extruder” is a mechanism which gives a form to a material, pushing it through the hot hole. 3D printers, the “extruder” should include and the stepper motor with gears, and the hot end, and the Bowden’s tube, if any.
But I often see the term “extruder” is applied only to the motor, and do not include the hot end”.:)
According to Sanjay and Rory as they demonstrate Titan Aqua, a two-in-one water-cooled Hot End and Extruder,” ‘water’ interchangeably with ‘coolant’ indeed, the product description. ‘Well which is it!?’ they recommend using a water-based coolant with Titan Aqua and the E3D water-cooling kit. You could use plain water and it would work, but it would also go moldy and lime-scaley and generally gross and gunked-up quite quickly. Water-based commercial coolants contain all the anti-fungal salts and distillation that the system needs. Plus they’re often UV-colour tinted, which looks much cooler than boring old transparent H2O. “.
Also featuring the fully compatible, integrated E3D Water Cooling Kit.
Titan has 4 nozzles with 8 thread filament inserts for true multi-color multi-threading printing to achieve true multi-color and high-resolution printing. upgrade-able up to 4 more powerful stepper driver running in SLI, and can be overclocked to 2.0 Vref for truly more powerful faster print. not to mention, it has RGB lighting.
Titan has the best performance to weight ratio on the market at a competitive price and fits perfectly with E3D’s V6 ecosystem. A 3:1 gear ratio, lightweight but with BIG push, Titan gets its teeth into your filament and won’t let go, improving the accuracy, speed, resolution, and quality of your prints.:)
Micron3DP Develops Technology for 3D Printing Using Molten Glass
According to the Israel based company Micron3DP,” they have announced that they have developed technology for 3D printing objects using molten glass. Micron3DP specializes in high-end extruders, hot ends, and accessories for 3d printing. They have developed an extruder for extruding extremely hot molten glass. The extruder can 3D print objects using soft glass or soda-lime glass at a temperature of 850 degrees Celsius. The extruder can even extrude hard glass or borosilicate glass at a temperature of 1640 degrees Celsius. Micron3DP is looking for investors to invest in their glass 3D printing technology”.:)
