The Adverse Effects of PTFE Restrictions

Nozzle clogging and extruder slipping are the main factors causing extrusion problems. But what about restrictions in the PTFE tubing? Might it cause extrusion problems or, in the very least, losses in the extrusion process?  

How the Pulsar™ pellet extruder improved art & architectural design fabrication

Using the Pulsar pellet extruder, Eventscape managed to print a large table in only 8 hours, improving their workflow and reducing lead time and material waste.

Plastic Pellets Mixing: Can the Pulsar­™ extruder mix polymers while extruding?

Pulsar™ has no mixing section, but experiments have shown that there's a good shear in the screw, mostly in the later section of the extruder. This section which is very close to the nozzle adds some mixing path and fixed separation of the melt before it exits, which greatly improves the mixing.

Water Cooling and Peltier Cooling in 3D Printers

Why would you need liquid cooling? How is it any good? Why not use a Peltier cooler? Learn everything we learned about water-cooling in 3d printers since we released our first liquid cooling solution back in 2015.

Our Cube Pro Total Conversion: Part 4

A lot of questions were asked in our Cube Pro conversion blog series. We decided to go into more detail about the steps of wiring and finalizing the printer in this new blog part.

What are the differences between a 12V and 24V 3D printer?

If you are building your own printer, you'll surely have to make a decision between a 12V  or 24V system. One has many advantages over the other, and we'll try to explain why in this small guide. Of course, other voltages exist such as 36V and 48V. We'll also cover where these could be used.
