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.

    • 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.
