Hello everybody

1- What's the smoothest linear motion system for a Z-axis that is used in a 3d printer?

2- Extruder mechanism that is geared to have stronger torque to push Flexible filament

Thanks in Advance

1- I have no idea. For the most part all the common printers have a Z system that is good enough to print any reasonable resolution - the problem is that with very thin z layers it can take days or weeks to make a print. So the problem is time, not Z accuracy. Usually.

2 = stronger doesn't help - the flexible filament if you push it hard at all will turn into a sine wave going back and forth in the bowden or maybe slipping out of the feeder without going to the nozzle at all.

    • "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.
