Printer sound levels, test print?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printer sound levels, test print?

Hi Guys,


 I'm asking this question in relation to sound testing my Tronxy X5SA Pro 330 x 330.


 This might seem like a ridiculous question, But I'm looking for a stl model and or settings to create the most noise my printer can make as a domestic/hobby type of use.


 I recently moved house to a flat, and I need to test the sound levels with regards to possible soundproofing so my neighbours won't be disturbed if a print runs overnight.


 Like I say above, I'll only be using my printer as a hobby, so it should really ever be running at full tilt.


 What would you guys recommend? I was thinking about printing something like very large calibration cube with 100% ZigZag infill so the steppers are working hard.


 What else should I consider?


 I'd be grateful for your input.
