As we all know, the accuracy of FDM 3D printers may actually be around 0.2mm. In theory, all manufacturers have standard 0.1mm. However, some people in the market say that the accuracy of their FDM 3D printers can reach 0.02mm. Is this worth thinking about? How to judge the accuracy of a 3D printer? The factors that affect 3d printing accuracy are as follows:
Discrete layers, stacked to form. Among them, each layer is layered by software. Stacking is done using a 3D printer, and our software can set the layer height to 0.05mm. The layer height here is 0.05mm, which does not mean it will be printed. The accuracy is 0.05mm, but it should be clearly pointed out that 0.05mm means that the 3D printer stacks 0.05mm layers.
Support processing 6 optical axes to move the nozzle. When processing these optical axes, there is a certain error range, and there are also errors in the combination of the optical axis and the nozzle, so these errors are inevitable and can be reduced as much as possible. Therefore, theoretically, even if the computer can control the 3D printer without error, it cannot actually achieve the accuracy of 0.05mm, and errors occur in the hardware.
Many people may disagree with this statement, but after a lot of experimentation, drawing errors have a major impact on printed parts. The high precision depends on it, and the 3D printer is directly formed with the set precision. Therefore, this also affects accuracy and cannot reach theoretical accuracy.
Mechanical vibration will cause larger print particles, and the accuracy will be relatively low. The above content is the method of judging the accuracy of FDM 3D printer, and it is also the factor that affects the accuracy of FDM 3D printer. Please pay more attention to the use of it to improve the accuracy of printed products.
