Don’t want your parts to break? Watch this video.
If you’ve ever dabbled in 3D printing, you’ve probably heard that the Z axis is weaker compared to the XY plane.
This can cause parts to break or crack when high pressure or impact is applied.
And if you’re not prepared for it, it can mess up the day or your plans.
In this video you will learn how to design your 3D printed parts so that they are strong enough to do the job you want them to do.
