XY-blocks fill print settings

Recommended Posts

After I noticed one of my UMO+ axle covers came loose due to friction from the axle, the plan to upgrade escalated into also wanting to replace my X/Y blocks while I'm at it. I was planning to go for the Lars' Ultralight ones.

But before I start printing I would love your input on one thing: what would be a good fill percentage for these parts? As I can imagine a high fill rate would be good for strength, but wouldn't that also make them heavier and thus harder to move around?

    • 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.
