The Kossel 3D printer is new in Mixshop stone! Kossel 3D printer is an elegant full-featured 3D Printer built in what is called a Delta design. Delta 3D Printers have three Stepper Motors rather than the two most 3D Printers have in order to move the Extruder Print Nozzle along the Printers usable range of motion. The “extra” Stepper Motor allows smoother and faster operation especially over large Print volumes; the Printing of a large object. As you can see from the picture of the Kossel 3D printer, due to its design you can perform tall Print jobs. Though elegant, the Kossel 3D printer is not high maintenance and can adapt to the bumps you may subject it to while traveling. The Kossel 3D printer incorporates and automatic calibration feature in which each time you move or setup your Printer the Print Bed will automatically level itself to ensure accurate Prints.

What are PLA and ABS filaments?

Besides the 3D printers that are using the laser and the power, the most of the 3D printers are using plastic filament as consumable. PLA and ABS plastic are most commonly used filaments in 3D printing, and 1.75mm and 3mm are the sizes available in the market.

Comparison of PLA and ABS: 

ABS

- oil based

- melts at a little higher temperature than PLA

- better choice for warmer applications (such as extruders)

- a little stronger than PLA (this is unsupported evidence for me, I haven’t really seen the numbers on this, but this is a common point)

PLA

- starch based (corn/plants/goats milk etc.)

- more environmentally friendly

 - from a renewable resource

 - if disposed of properly it will biodegrade

- melts at a lower temperature than ABS

- not as suitable for applications where heat is a concern

- a little weaker than ABS

For personal perspective, don’t use ABS in a enclosed space because it smells horrible, and it will affect your health, so use PLA if you have the printer near you and your family.

What is 3d printing and the process?

What is 3d printing and the process?

   3d printing is a process of building up a three dimensional solid object layer by layer from any digital model with commonly used material as plastic filament, resin, and powder. And nowadays, it’s mostly used for rapidly prototyping in architecture, industrial design, automotive, engineering, civil engineering, dental and medical industries, fashion, footwear, jewelry, eyewear, education, geographic, and many other fields. 

   The 3D printer that we are talking about today, is the desktop low-end 3D printer that uses plastic filament, the technology is known as fused deposition modeling. Firstly the extruder grabs the plastic filament and pushes the filament to an extrusion nozzle, which can be heated to melt the plastic filament. Secondly, the software controls the printer to move in both horizontal (X axis) and vertical (Y axis) directions, and laying down the material to create a layer. When a layer has finished, the printer will raise up ( Z axis) to stack another layer on top of the layer, then a solid object will be created layer by layer.
