Fill out this quick 3D printing related survey

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a high school senior currently working on a science fair project involving 3D printing. The survey is a way for me to conduct a quick and simple market study that will help add credibility to my project. The survey is only 6 questions so it shouldn't take longer than a minute. Also, the survey is only for those of you that use FDM 3D printers. The survey is only 6 questions so it shouldn't take longer than a minute. Thanks in advance! Link to the survey

Didn't fill it in but here my 5 cent.

I own an enclosure. My opinion is that putting the printer with all the hardware inside an enclosure will cause overheating problems. The steppers will run hot and the electronics as well. I closed the printer area not the whole machine and placed the motors outside. Since electronics are at the bottom they still get fresh cool air. A enclosure only makes sense when printing abs. For pla it is not needed and it might get too hot.

When printing abs (110 degrees build plate) the air in the enclosure gets to at least 45 degrees.

    • "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.
