Material feeder

Recommended Posts

Where should the indicator block be on the material feeder? Currently it seems like it too much and the heater block is not melting the material fast enough(standard PLA settings), I'm getting a lot of that clicking sound. Currently mine has been at the top line since I got the printer.

    • 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.
