Is it possible to print this?

Recommended Posts

What's the radius of curvature at the tip of each gear? That's the same as your needed nozzle radius. Measuring roughly with my fingers I'm going to guess 0.1mm.

That would mean you could print it on a UM Original if you bought a 0.2mm diameter nozzle. I'm not sure if it would be strong enough for your needs but probably it would be.

The normal nozzle for the UM Original and UM2 is .4mm.

.2mm nozzles work but they are more likely to clog. But many people have had good success. I don't think you can go any smaller than .2mm.

You could print this part on the b9creator easily but I don't know if the resulting material is strong enough - I have heard that the resin is somewhat brittle:

Or the Form1. You could print this part through shapeways.com also.

    • "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.
