Achieve a resolution of 100 microns in xy

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody! I`m new in this field and I'm trying to make a piece with a resolution of 100 (or at least 150 microns) in the xy plane, I´m using CURA but I can't achieve this goal, Ithink that the problem is the parameters so someone can tell me which parameters I have to change and which values??

Thank you!!!

Hi @Alexrp92, thank you for your post and welcome to the forums!

The motors are capable of, I believe, 12micron, and the standard nozzle is 0.4mm nozzle.

So you would have to change your nozzle to a smaller nozzle if you want to print something at 100 micron in X and Y.

Why can't you achieve this goal so far? Have you made some test prints that did not come out well?

Thank you for the answer !

Yes, i did some test prints, but for example I tried to print a box with this dimensions: x=0.16 mm; y= 0.16mm; and z= 0.3. Just to now if this printer is capable to do that and the thing is that I saved in the SD card and later in the um2+ appears the message: there is no info in this file...

    • "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.
