Deltaprintr Unveils Mini Hotend: Temperatures Up to 700°C

Recommended Posts

Example of some materials that in theory would be possible. Though in practice I don't think making magma would be high on my to do list lol.

Melting point of Tin = 231.9C

Melting point of lead = 327.5C

Melting point of aluminium alloy = 463 to 671C

Melting point of aluminium = 660.3C

Glass depending on composition melts at approximately = 500c to 1650c +

Natural rock depending on composition turns to magma at = 700c to 1300c +

Keep in mind the more temperature we apply and depending on the material the off gassing could be very toxic. Not to mention any toxic residue left by some metals.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
