Do you know what an R_E_R_F file is used for in 3D printing?
Ultimaker announced a new version of Ultimaker Cura, which seems to offer much more rapid 3D printing.
DyeMansion announced a new program they call “TryMansion”.
3D Platform has published a set of simple benchmarks that anyone could easily use.
Researchers at the University of Leiden have been 3D printing microswimmers and are testing all options.
This week’s selection is “Mechanical Behavior of Materials” by Norman Dowling, Stephen Kampe, and Milo Kral.
Benchmarking samples are often produced to ensure a 3D printed part delivers the required engineering performance. However, miniFactory has introduced a new twist on the process.
A new online service has emerged that hopes to guide 3D printer operators to better printing parameters: 3DOptimizer.
The difficulty in 3D printing a particular type of industrial part suggests an idea for a type of benchmark object for metal 3D printing.
Everyone talks about “3D printer calibration”, but what is it really? We believe the process varies considerably depending on a number of factors.
This week’s selection is the extremely useful Variable Retraction Test by designer Viet Nguyen.
Charles Goulding of R&D Tax Savers discusses benchmarking in 3D printing.
Kickstarter announced a new set of tests for 3D printers that appear on their site.
I read some posts proposing an alternate test print for 3D printing.
A reader asked if a print speed benchmark existed. I’m not sure such a thing could exist.
The ever popular #3DBenchy benchmarking object has received a slight upgrade.
We 3D printed two popular benchmark 3D models on a top quality industrial 3D printer, the Stratasys Objet Connex260.
As reported yesterday, T. A. Grimm & Associates has published a very extensive benchmarking report on a selection of common commercial 3D printers. We’ve been looking forward to something like this because we all too often hear statements from vendors such as: “lowest cost of materials” and “five times better resolution” or “suitable for office… Continue reading 3D Printer Benchmark Results
We’ve been waiting for this one: a real, honest to goodness benchmark for 3D printers. T. A. Grimm & Associates announced a new benchmark specifically designed for 3D printers. TAG’s approach is to produce four challenging and specifically designed models on each of the tested printers. Each printer is then measured against a series… Continue reading 3D Printer Benchmark Announced
