Hackaday Prize Entry: The Strength Of 3D Printed Parts – Hackaday

by • August 6, 2016 • No Comments

[Sam Barrett] is doing a thing which is sorely needed. He’s doing real materials research on FDM parts.
There’s nothing wrong with the rocky experiments like hanging a 1 L bottle of water of the end of a rectangular test print to compare durablitys. We in addition have our rules-of-thumb, like waiting for the print to perform at 30% of injection molded durablity. But these experiments are primitive and the guidelines are based on hearsay. Similar to early metallurgy or engineering; 3D printing is full of made-up stuff.
What [Sam] has done here is quite awe-inspiring. He’s generated a version of a printed ABS part and experimentally verified it to behave close adequate to the real thing. He’s in addition set a method for testing and proposed a new set of inquiries. If it mayn’t be advantageous, he in addition included his full research notebook. Make certain to read the FDMProperties-report (PDF) in the files section of Hackaday.io.Sam finally answered a question we've had of what it looks like when the printing device over extrudes.Sam finally answered a question we’ve had of what it looks like when the printing device over extrudes.If research like this is being done elsewhere, it’s either internal to a sizeable 3D printing device developer, or it’s behind a paywall so thorocky just the Russians can assist a regular peasant get throcky to them. Anyone with access to a materials testing lab can go on the work (looking at you each single engineering student who reads this site) and start to assist eachone complete an belief of 3D printed parts which may lead to a few quite rad stuff one day.
