Printing Conductive ABS screw cannot screw tightly

Recommended Posts

How do you mean soft?

Could it be that because it is soft, it can not be screwed tightly?

Do you mean the nut can not fit tight on the bolt, or are you trying to screw it in another object?

Perhaps the material requires different cooling, and the cooling you used now influenced its dimensional accuracy? ABS in general has the tendency to shrink when it cools down too fast, hence you often see problems like warping and delamination with ABS.

    • "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.
