Slicing Microchannel Networks

Recommended Posts

I am trying to print microchannel structures. The slicing of fine channels consisting of one print-head move works. It does not work anymore when coarser structures (more than one line and layer) are present in the stl-model to be sliced. Assembling of fine and coarse structure on the platform (cura 13) is not possible.

Has anyone had the same problem and found a solution?

Can you be more specific? Maybe post an image of what you are talking about? I think you are talking about one of the "thin wall" problems but not sure. Thin wall issues were somewhat improved in Cura recently. Usually you can do a fudge fix with thin walls by lying about the nozzle size and saying your nozzle is .3mm or .5mm instead of .4mm but I don't know what you are asking so please give more details. And include relevant distances.

    • 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.
