Somehow I hadn’t seen the FDM Assessment Protocol for quite a while, but maybe you haven’t either.
The eternal question of those using filament-powered 3D printers needs an answer.
Researchers have developed an approach for measuring 3D printed part quality over multiple machines.
The question of measuring an amount of 3D printer filament seems straightforward, but there’s more to the story.
Researchers in the US military have developed a set of tests to determine the strength of 3D printed parts that could aid in future metal 3D printing quality control.
QIF is the Quality Information Framework, and additive manufacturing will see a lot more of it in the future.
Measurement is often seen as non-value-added work. However, if we properly account for the expected costs involved in passing defects on to customers, then the increased value of the product can be clearly shown.
This week’s question deals with arithmetic.
