Tips for 3D Printer Thermoplastic Extruder Operation

One critical part of 3D printing is the software used to design, output (or convert), repair, and then process 3D models into code that can be understood by the 3D printer.

Slic3r, designed by Alessandro Ranellucci, is an open-source conversion tool for 3D-model processing for printing. The Slic3r software can be downloaded for PC, Mac, and Linux at Slic3r is in a constant state of upgrade, which makes it an ideal choice for the rapid developments in 3D printing. Many enhancements are constantly proposed and produced by the community; check back often to find out whats new or improved.

The main task for any 3D print-slicing program is to cut up a model into fine layers all geometrically and dimensionally correct and plan paths for the extruded material used on each layer. When the print-slicing program does its job correctly, the 3D printers firmware processes this data and controls the movement of the printers components to print out the finished model.

The slicing program also analyzes the model for printability, and can then decide whether additional commands are needed whether to print extra material to help support a bridge, for example. Further, if you select to use support material, the slicer will do best to add the required breakaway support material without your needing to change the model.

Thus a slicing program must apply some intelligence to slicing a model; providing overhangs of material and sections of bridging may require changing the perimeter outlines of the object or detecting when solid layers that go in a specific direction must bridge a gap in an object to keep the print strong and appealing in its final appearance.

RepRap 3D printers use a control language calledG-code, as do the full commercial 3D printers that cost upwards of $50,000. G-code is an industry standard set of commands and codes used to script the path that a 3D printer (or even a CNC milling machine) uses to produce a 3D object. Thus all the software tools used for RepRap can also be used for high-end machines.

The difference with RepRap is that the further development of G-code is highly dynamic; new codes and commands can easily be added to the G-code set as the technology develops further. Many different slicing programs exist for 3D printing, but Slic3r is a favorite with RepRap users all over the world. Other slicing programs you may wish to investigate include Cura, Repetier host, and Kisslicer.

Netfabb is a very powerful commercial software package that is ideal for many aspects of 3D file manipulation. Its not open-source, but a basic version thats still amazingly functional is available for free download from

RepRap users favor Netfabb basic for checking model files prior to sending them to the slicing program. Netfabb allows you to rotate, scale, and modify (or fix) your object models. Loading a model into Netfabb before loading it into Slic3r enables you to ensure that the model looks 3D-printable, that it is in the correct orientation, and that it will print out at the size you expect and require.

Netfabb basic is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux. A cloud-based version is also available and is often even better at fixing issues with 3D model meshes that have errors or refuse to slice correctly.

Professional versions along with specific packages of Netfabb tailored for different 3D printers (including the Ultimaker) are available to buy.

Pronterface is an open-source RepRap user interface for controlling your 3D printer and sending G-code files off to print. The complete Printrun package of software was developmed by Kliment Yanev and is widely used in the RepRap home 3D-printing community.

The Printrun package is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux from

Pronterface is an essential program for the easy use of your 3D printer.

Pronterface can also be linked with Slic3r. Doing so allows you to load model files and run background slicing into G-code with Slic3r from the set profiles youve already defined.

Repetier-Host is an alternative slicing engine and control panel for your 3D printer. Its similar to Pronterface and Slic3r in function, and can be linked to Slic3r.

Repetier-Host is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and can be downloaded here:

ReplicatorG is another well-established open-source package for both model slicing and 3D printer control. It has been widely used by some closed-source manufacturers of 3D printers, but has yet to attain wide popularity with RepRap users and developers.

ReplicatorG is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, and can be downloaded from

Stratasys worth the price over RepRap style 3d printers?(self.3Dprinting)

submitted5 years agobyfly2future

if you had a budget of 30k to get involved with 3dprinting would you buy 1x professional Stratasys machine or buy multiple RepRap style machines?

Im wondering what exactly you are paying all this money for with a Stratasys machine besides the soluble support system? is the software on the Stratasys machine so much better than the opensource software used on these RepRap style machines?

From researching it appears that the Makerbot/Rep-rap derived printers are producing parts just as good as the Stratasys systems… or is this just a lot of hype and the reality is that the parts quality is way different amongest these machines?

Being the technology is so new, Im just unsure if right now is the right time to buy a printer or give it another few months or so to see what other options come up with higher resolution, faster printing, etc.?

1 point2 points3 points5 years ago(0 children)

The difference is how much time toy want to put into the printer. I convinced my last company to purchase a u print (one of Stratasys lower end models). It was awesome. No matter what designs i sent to it, they would come out fine (within the limitations of layer thickness, xy tolerance, and minimum feature size). Literally, the only thing that i needed to do were reload filament and occasionally change print heads. I still long for the soluble Support system as i sit here with my reprap.

With that being said, you trade off the ability to refine the machine for ease of operation. You get the layer heights and tolerances that stratasys offers. You pay 10x for filament over reprap. You will probably want to buy into a service contact as well.

The bottom line is that stratasys is plug and play while reprap requires much tinkering. Stratasys is EXPENSIVE while reprap is cheap.

If i had 10k to blow, i would get a strstasys mojo but i would continue working with my reprap as well.

Sorry for formatting or word errors. This is from my phone and i may have missed a few auto corrects

MendelMax 2.00 points1 point2 points5 years ago(5 children)

Hello! My school actually has a Dimension printer, and I actually believe Statasys and Dimension have merged into one now.

Here are some critiques from my point of view, as a student who has used it for 3 years now, and someone building their own reprap.

Large Build Area (ours has 12x12x12 inches)

Heated build environment is better for ABS prints, stops ABS shrinkage

Pretty much print and go, easier to operate

Filament swapping is easy, usually cartridges.

Can use soluble support material, and non-soluble break-away support that also works well

Not as good layer heights. Not bad tolerances mind you, but just not quite as good as a reprap

Commonly much slower than the higher end reprap designs

Material is crazy expensive. $250 for 5lbs of ABS, where it costs 95$ for filament for repraps. And no, you cant get around that. Due to a serial code and electronic filament level tracker in every spool, each one gets a unique ID and memory of its fill level. Respooling it would lock the spool out, I believe. There are firmware hacks, but that tosses the warranty fully out the window

Restrictive software. Our layer heights are limited to 0.23mm and 0.25mm. I have heard it can do much better, but again, this requires firmware hacks

In short, big machines are expensive but reliable, with massive build volumes and ease-of-use in mind

Repraps are the antithesis of this, with smaller build volumes (commonly 8x8x8 for bigger printers), higher precision and speeds, but require software and hardware tuning to achieve the best results.

I personally favor RepRaps, but I will avoid introducing bias as much as I can

0 points1 point2 points5 years ago(3 children)

do the rep raps use soluble support material like the srarasys?

MendelMax 2.00 points1 point2 points5 years ago(2 children)

You can buy it, yes. Its called PVA but is about $56/lb instead of $21/lb. But Im sure the price from Stratasys is not cheap either

0 points1 point2 points5 years ago(1 child)

my work is looking at the stratasys u prints, which more expensive seem the best solution for an education setting, nice and enclosed no chopped off fingers

MendelMax 2.00 points1 point2 points5 years ago(0 children)

Well, chopped off fingers arent a worry, but burns are. The hot end reachers 165 Celsius, and the bed 65-100 Celsius depending on material. Some can be bought with enclosures; I recommend Solidoodle 2 or 3 with enclosure. And it pains me to say this, but even the Replicator 1 with dual extrusion or Replicator 2 with dual extrusion (if you wait for it to be released) would be a better choice. Just about any enclosed 3D printer would be best, I guess. And cheaper for material, so would allow you to use it for more stuff in education.

0 points1 point2 points4 years ago(0 children)

Dimension and Stratasys are one and the same. Dimension is a line of their printers.

0 points1 point2 points5 years ago(0 children)

If you have 30k to play with, why not look into photopolymer-style printers? You can get far better resolution (generally), and in some cases excellent build envelopes as well.

0 points1 point2 points4 years ago(0 children)

Im a salesman for Stratasys printers, and I just recently went to an event where I got to see all the Makerbots/RepRaps/LulzBots working, and every part I saw printed was either severely warped or had some other bizarre quirk that forced them to reprint. So, I mean, if youve got the budget, then Id save yourself the pain of dicking around with a lower end printer.

And for the record, Stratasys Mojo printer is only about $10,000 🙂

3D Printing for Mass Production

3D printing speeds are likely to ramp up over the next decade or so, bringing material costs down as they do.getmedia/37913475-cd40-400b-8f40-9fae8f5d40e9/3D-Printing-for-Mass-Production_thumb.jpg.aspx?width=60&height=60&ext=.jpg

Despite the fact that it can be used to make pretty much anything, 3D printing has already been pigeon-holed. In the public imagination, the technology belongs in a science museum, or sitting on some DIY hobbyists desk. When put to work in industry, its limited to whipping out a few prototype variations, one-off pieces, or parts that require only a very short print run. The cars, guns, and oddball chess sets made by 3D printers are mere curios, made by the handful. When it comes to the world of mass production, manufacturers continue to turn to other technologies.

Thats the story so far. But it wont be the story for long. People are beginning to see the potential for high volume, says Neil Hopkinson, a professor of mechanical engineering at theUniversity of Sheffield, in the U.K. The biggest resistor is the cost of a part.

A recentpaperin the U.K. pointed to just what needs to change to exploit that potential, and for the cost of the part to come down: if additive techniques could pick up the pace, to the tune of somewhere between four and ten times as fast as the current rate of3D printingproduction, the technology would become competitive with anything else found on a factory floor.

Laser sintering is a bottleneck to the whole process, says Hopkinson of the method that stacks one layer on top another, fusing them with a laser. If you want to make big parts or lots of really small parts, its prohibitively slow and expensive. Hopkins has shown an alternative with a much wider neck. His method usesinkjet technologyto print an infrared absorbing ink onto the bed, and use that to center the material. Behind the print head is a lamp, which heats the infrared ink and melts the particles beneath it.

As costs come down, manufacturers who used to rely on machining will turn to 3D printing.

Depending on the size of the printing bed and the size and complexity of the object, Hopkinsons method has the potential to be ten to 100 times faster than current laser centering technology.

As the speed increases and the cost comes down, manufacturers who used to rely on machining and injection molding will turn to 3D printing, and those with a lower production volume are likely to make the switch first. Where companies currently use machining for a few thousand parts, the material is restricted to metal. By turning to 3D printing, plastics become an option.

With increased production, the cost of those plastics will come way down as well, making the whole technology easier on the budget. Its only because 3D printing remains a niche means of production that the cost of materials is so high. The same materials cost much less when slated for injection molding, but only because of the size of the market. As 3D technology speeds up and spreads out, materials companies are likely to drop the costs as they rise to meet the demand. A lot of material suppliers have historically not been interested in the field of rapid prototyping, says Hopkinson, They can see that high-volume additive manufacturing is on the way, and they are preparing to get those materials ready for market.

Many injection-molding companies recognize that 3D printing may soon take a bite out of their business and are investing in their own 3D printing machines. But they neednt worry that injection molding will go the way of linotype. 3D printing has a much narrower range of materials available to it.

Already 3D printing is on the rise for consumer products. Today, iPhone cases have been printed by the thousands and companies like Nike have turned to 3D printing for complex, limited run shapesboth using current with laser centering techniques. Once inkjet or other methods replace laser centering the world will be filled with printed products. Just as the last here years have seen a boom 3D printing in the home, the next five years will be characterized by a much bigger growth of industrialadditive manufacturing, says Hopkinson.

Over ten years ago I predicted wed start using laser centering to make products in the low thousands. I think most people thought that was rubbish and would never happen, says Hopkinson. But its happening. The manufacturing world is now more accepting of the next leap. I would say the majority of people believe its going to happen, he claims.

Who wouldnt want a 3D-printed Toyota 22RE inline-four and W56 transmission?

Ever since3D printingbroke into the mainstream, its become possible not only to download and make reproductions of small parts for your car (hopefully nothing crucial that will encounter a lot of heat or friction), but also to download, print and assemble miniatures of entire powertrains.

MakerBots Thingiverse website has thousands of items 3D printer owners can download and print out using plastic filament on a variety of printers — the 3D files can work with several different 3D modeling software programs and printers.

ConsiderThingiverse item number 713815– a working W56 five-speed transmission for aToyota22RE engine, a 2.4-liter 8-valve SOHC inline-four that was in production from 1981 through 1997 and that was used in vehicles like the 4Runner, Hilux, Celica and Corona. Thingiverse user Eric Harrell reverse-engineered this working five-speed transmission to approximately 1:3 scale.

This is the 4WD version of the transmission so it has a mounting surface to bolt a transfer case to, Harrell says. Ill work to get a 2wd housing designed up, since the only difference is the rear section of the transmission.

Oh, and theres a 3D model of the engine itself,available for download as Thingiverse item number 644933. No, it doesnt run on gasoline like other model engines weve recently watched — the fuel would make a quick meal of that plastic.

This model was reverse engineered from a 22RE Toyota engine, all modeling was done in SolidWorks and the STL files were scaled to 35% for printing since that was the biggest my printer could print, Harrell writes. All parts were printed in PLA on my RepRap original Prusa. There are 80 printed parts in this assembly, not including any fasteners or bearings. Probably a whole 1kg roll of plastic. The model can be built in different stages, if you only want the short block then only print those parts. The head is completely removable so you can see the pistons moving and also the valves opening and closing. The oil pan is attached with magnets so you can take it off and see the crankshaft moving.

The 3D model engines creator cautions that this is not an easy or quick item to build. So if you try this one, youll need to stock up on filament.

Building an engine from scratch in 1:1 scale is difficult enough and requires more precision tools that are available to the average hobbyist. Now imagine what it takes to build a moving, functional …

Total print time of the block at 35 percent scale of the original was just over 34 hours, Harrell says. Just the head print time was 20 hours. Make sure you have a well calibrated and robust machine if you want to print this. Its definitely is a challenge for you and your printer.

Now, if we only had enough filament to 3D print a 1:3 scale Toyota Hilux pickup…
