Restarting a print with cheap laser scanning ($60USD)

Recommended Posts

Thats pretty cool. I would like to see it finish a print instead... Like resuming with the missing layers.

gr5 pointed me to Pronterface for this but did get time to look at it yet.

From GR5:

 

It's not too hard to continue a failed print - most important thing is to keep the bed hot so the part doesn't pop off when it cools.

 

First you need to use pronterface to find the exact layer to continue on. Pronterface is here:

Gr5's method works if you can keep the part attached to the bed.

I thought this one was interesting because they used (double sided I presume) tape to reattach the part to the bed to continue.

Yeah, it would be interesting to see how well the system handles the translation when finishing a failed print instead of printing on top of another print. You can see that the point data isn't perfect so you wonder about the accuracy.

    • "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.
