3D Scanning and Printing

Group Assignment:

  • Test the design rules for your 3D printer(s)

  • Document your work on the group work page

3d printing

we had taken this file on the internet because it answers directly to the tests we want to bring out for 3D printing. download link

1. slicer

we will first slice the file on PRUSA SLICER

les paramètres :

  1. choice of quality
  2. choice of material or filament
  3.choice of printer 
  4.choice of filling 
  5.calculate the slicing

 1. amount of substance in grams
 2. amount of matter in meter 
 3. printing time 
 4. export to your sd to pass on the printer

### 2. printing

After printing, we will try to turn the different knobs. In case, the knob will not turn will remain our tolerance limit. Here all the knobs turn but the 0.1mm clearance one does not turn. So the last one I can turn is a tolerance of 0.15mm, this is the tolerance we will use in the design when this part is printed.
