What is Arachne?It is the new perimeter generator, developed by Ultimaker for Cura, and implemented also in Slic3r-based programs like Super Slicer and Prusa Slicer.What advantages does it have over classic perimeter generators?Until now, the perimeter generators used a static extrusion width, linked to the nozzle width, this generated in some area..

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..

To be able to speak properly about Warping, it is important to understand a physical property, "thermal dilatation" and how this physical phenomenon influences our 3D prints.Thermal expansionThe definition is:"Thermal expansion is called the increase in length, volume or some other metric dimension that a physical body undergoes due to the increase..

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 ..

PID vs Bang BangIf we want to control the temperature of an element of our 3D printer through a heater and a switch, the first thing one could think of is:Select a setpoint temperature.Heat when the actual temperature is below the setpoint.Do not heat when the temperature is equal to or greater than this value.This simple method is the "Bang Bang" ..

In this post we want to explain in a complete, clear and concise way the main aspects to calibrate your 3DSteel and obtain professional results. We will go a little beyond the basic concepts, but we will try to reel it as much as possible so that it does not turn out to be an overly technical reading.It should be noted that sometimes there are two ..

Perhaps at first glance this update may seem like a minor update, since visually the changes are not very visible, but in reality it is a great update, since we went from 8 to 32 bits, and from 12 to 24 volts. Additionally, we upgraded the controllers from the TMC2130 to the TMC2209 and the bed from an aluminum MK3 to a magnetic bed with inserted m..

3DSteel V2, the ideal 3D printer for educational centers3D printing is becoming increasingly important in our world. From individuals who can manufacture custom objects to new forms of manufacturing for companies, which makes production more flexible. Therefore, the knowledge of its operation and use will be a very useful tool in the future of chil..

Heated Bed and Printing SurfaceThe heated bed and the printing surface is a very important part of our 3D printer. It is where the printed part is printed or manufactured, so a good choice will make our lives easier in our experience with 3D printing, avoiding problems such as warping.As 3D printers evolve new electronic and mechanical components a..
