Wire printing

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had success with wire printing? The closest I've gotten is this print of a standard cylinder. IMG_20150810_145715.thumb.jpg.ad8185484b6e777ab8d52221cd79798e.jpg

The first issue is I can't get it to print a nice bottom layer on which to build the print on. I tried adding a brim but it isn't showing up.

Also the tops of each triangle aren't drooping (if they're supposed to droop at all!) equally and so when the circle tries to connect the points, sometimes it can't find anything to stick to.

The wire printing is very experimental. Bagelorb is the engineer that made it, he should be able to give some pointers, but i'm not sure if he's on the forum. If you create an issue on the CuraEngine repo he should be able to help you.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
