A study of Ultimaker ?


Recommended Posts

Posted · A study of Ultimaker ?

I have not found yet a paper about Ultimaker. I mean :

- a study of the mechanics with a lot of sinuses and cosinuses.

- about the stiffness of the frame

- the electronics and the programming

- thermodynamics

    Posted · A study of Ultimaker ?

    There are plenty of published papers about REPRAP printers, covering all the aspects

    you are asking about.

    Just learn to use google. In the first 5mins I found (specifically containing references to Ultimakers)

    An Investigation of the Methods and Applications of Personal 3D Printing Technology

    William Barksdale, Steven Daniel, Sandeep Dinesh, Nick Daniel, Kyle Pierce, Sean Smiley


    A new Paradigm for Open Robotics Research with the C++ Object Oriented Mechanics Library

    http://www.iearobotics.com/downloads/pa ... city12.pdf

    Exploration of Multi-Material Additive Manufacturing

    http://shelley.sakuda.us/files/ME495%20 ... Report.pdf

    On the viability of the open source development model for the design of physical objects

    Lessons learned from the RepRap project

    http://fablabeindhoven.nl/wp-content/up ... n-2010.pdf

    The thermodynamics are the same for all repraps so any paper on that will help (there are loads)

    The electronics is Arduino, for which you can find anything you want to know about with google

    The mechanics are just an implimenntation of very standard designs, so there must be hundreds of papers on that

    if you look.
