"hightec" sounds

Recommended Posts

euh, is it me or are there a lot of 'hightec' sounds while printing, like R2D2 is at work :) ? My wife and kid likes it but i'm not sure. Can you turn it of because i don't have the feeling its the the original sound of the motors... or am i wrong?

The mechanics "hum" at the frequency it get steps. So you get tones depending on the speed.

You can make music with it:

 

Nothing to worry about really. Actually, get used to the sound, you'll notice something is wrong when the sound suddenly changes :)

    • 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.
