University Team Implements 3D Printing System for Electronic Circuits with Open Source Hardware

A team at Hamburg University has succeeded in demonstrating a fully automated production of 3D-printed electronic circuits. Over the course of several years, a Kühling&Kühling RepRap Industrial (a predecessor to today’s HT500.2) has been supplemented with a number of different tools and an adapted slicing engine has been developed, which orchestrates the complex manufacturing process.…

Improvements for Break-Away Support Structures with ABS Material

We recently challenged our team with a number of sophisticated, organic 3D models to print and further optimize our default slicing profiles in regard to break-away support performance. Since well working support structures can be considered the holy grail of the Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D printing, improvements in this field are on top of…
