What is the influence of color, printing speed, extrusion temperature and ageing on my 3D prints?
In February 2015, 3D Matter conducted a study on infill %, layer height, and infill pattern. We wanted to continue this initial effort by studying another set of very important FDM 3D printing parameters: filament color, printing speed, extrusion temperature and ageing. These are parameters that 3D printer users have frequently singled out as making a difference on the outcome of prints. So the goal of this study is to distinguish the factors that have a large influence on the printed parts from those that have limited influence. This helps users optimize their prints by focusing on the important parameters.
ps. I'm thinking we might expand this board of the section to be "Developers, Makers, and Entrepreneurs". Thoughts?
