3D printing is an increasingly popular technology that allows us to create parts and objects with unprecedented precision and customization. One of the most important parts of a 3D printer is the nozzle, since it is in charge of extruding the material and shaping our design. In this informative technical post we are going to talk about the differen..

Klipper is a firmware for high performance 3D printers.How does Klipper work?Unlike most firmwares for 3D printers, Klipper is not installed on the 3D printer board, it is installed on a PC or micro-computer, usually on a Raspberry Pi 3, 4 or higher (it can also be installed on other devices). A small piece of software is installed on the controlle..

When we start in 3D printing we usually pay a lot of attention to eye-catching components, such as the extruder or the board. But until we delve a little deeper we do not begin to pay attention to other vital and fundamental elements, such as the case of fans and their role in cooling specific parts of our 3D printer.According to its funct..

Super Slicer is a "Laminator" or "Slicer" for 3D Printing. These programs generate the instructions (GCode) that our 3D printers interpret to print the parts. There are many alternatives on the market, but this laminator has some features that make it stand out: It is free. It is open source. Generate high-quality parts and instructions. Compared w..

Context - Origin of 3D printingWe have to go back to the 80s to talk about the origin of 3D printing. In these years this technology was born and the first patents emerged.As it is a new technology and is protected by patents, it is very far from the general public, reserved for large companies and organizations.2005 the year everything changedThe ..
