Tech tip: Setting different settings packages within a component
Reasons & Benefits
When it comes to 3D printing, it is always necessary to optimize the settings for the production of a component. Usually, the same settings are used for the whole part. However, sometimes it is advantageous to use different settings within a component. This can be off different Found be necessary, e.g. for individual distribution of strength and density, for a change in rigidity (especially in the case of TPU) or for a different position of the centre of gravity.
By using individual settings packages within a 3D printed component different Advantages develop. For one, it can lead to a reduction in the cost of the part. By adapting the settings to the needs of the component, the material can be saved, which is then reflected in a lower price. On the other hand, the printing time can also be reduced. For example, if only certain areas of the part need to be printed at a higher density, the printing process can be completed more quickly. In addition, more visually beautiful parts can be created using different settings to improve aesthetic properties.
Overall, the use of individual settings packages within a 3D-printed component offers many advantages. It can lead to better matching to the part’s requirements, helping to save material and time.
We currently have the option of setting a settings package for a component in Eiger, which is made up as follows:
Composition of a setting package
- Different types of infill:
- Triangular Infill
- Hexagonal Infill
- Rectangular Infill
- Gyroid Infill
- Solid Fill
- Anzahl der Wand-Layer von 1-10
- Anzahl der Boden- und Decken-Layer von 0-15
- Individuelles Legen der verschiedenen Langfasern:
- Glass fiber
How do I proceed? (step-by-step instructions)
If you want to integrate different settings packages into one component, proceed as follows:
In your CAD design software, cut the component into two individual sections along an individual surface.
Exportieren der einzelnen Teilstücke des Bauteils als STL. aus der Konstruktions-Software. (Der Rahmen muss bei jedem Teilstück mit exportiert werden).
The final component
