EXTRUDER IS NOT "LOADED" BEFORE START PRINTING

EXTRUDER IS NOT "LOADED" BEFORE START PRINTING
Most extruders have a bad habit of squeeze out a little 'of melted plastic when they are still at the start due to high temperature. The hot plastic within the nozzle tends to leak from the tip, creating a vacuum within the nozzle. Read more

3D PRINT: Vespers by Neri Oxman

3D PRINT: Vespers by Neri Oxman
A real collection of works of art printed in 3D. That's Vespers, an art project and design that purposefully combines the new and the old.

At the moment the collection, which was officially presented two days ago, on the occasion of the reopening of the Design Museum of London, includes a series of death masks designed by Blacks Oxman and his team in order to play with the complexity and computational techniques the resolution that are found in nature.

3D PRINT: SETTING THE COOLING TEMPERATURE

3D PRINT: SETTING THE COOLING TEMPERATURE
The plastic tends to shrink as it cools from a hot temperature to a colder temperature. To make a useful example, imagine a large part 100 mm which is printed using ABS plastic. If the extruder was printing this plastic to 230 degrees Celsius, but it has been deposited on a cold platform construction, it is likely that the plastic cools down too quickly after leaving the nozzle still very hot.

POETRY4: TURBO SPEED AND MASS PRODUCTION

POETRY4: TURBO SPEED AND MASS PRODUCTION

3D technology and its production potential truly fascinate collective imaginary.  Up till now, creating an efficient production system was unthinkable. IRA3D worked hard to achieve this objective and now it has succeeded and has launched the new 3D printer with FLD technology: Poetry4.

Mass production is the creation of large quantities of products, one of the objectives of Poetry4, IRA3D’s latest addition. The use of 3D printing by manufacturing and design companies has become increasing more frequent and is now expanding to the architecture, construction, defence and biomedical sectors, just to mention a few.
