Technical Specs and FAQs For the Dimension SST 768 3D Printer
How are fashions made on a Dimension SST 768 3D Printer?
Practical 3D fashions are constructed from the underside up, one layer at a time. Layers construct upon one another to create a wonderfully correct 3D mannequin.
What materials is used?
The fabric is hard, sturdy acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic.
How are the layers created?
Layers are created via fused deposition molding (FDM). ABS plastic is fed into an extrusion head, heated to a semi-liquid state and precisely deposited in filament type to layers as nice as zero.007-inch (zero.178 mm) thick.
Do I want to change my 3D CAD information as a way to put together them for 3D printing?
The Dimension SST can work together with your 3D CAD fashions simply as they’re. No modifications are required in your finish. The Catalyst® EX software program mechanically imports STL information, orients the half, slices the file, generates help buildings (if essential), and creates a exact deposition path to construct your ABS mannequin.
How is the trail for every layer created?
The software program mechanically plots a exact deposition path for the printer to comply with.
What are the help buildings and the way do they work?
The help buildings are momentary layers of fabric used within the creation of speedy prototypes on a 3D printer. It’s used to fill voids and keep help as mandatory because the 3D mannequin is being constructed.
What occurs to the help buildings after the mannequin is accomplished?
After completion of the construct, help buildings are merely eliminated. An agitation system that makes use of scorching water and a cleaning soap tub routinely washes away the help buildings.
How can help buildings be used to create shifting elements?
Help buildings may be inserted into the 3D mannequin in locations that might in any other case be empty area in a shifting half, such because the areas between gear tooth. When the help construction is dissolved away, what was as soon as strong area connecting two elements is now empty, permitting motion of the 2 elements.
What are the advantages of ABS plastic?
Fashions made from ABS plastic are robust sufficient for use as working elements. ABS elements could be sanded, milled, drilled, tapped, painted and even electro-plated. ABS prototypes present a better degree of precision then fashions produced with photograph chemical compounds, wax or different types of 3D printing. Speedy prototypes of ABS plastic shall be sturdy and correct sufficient for items to truly snap or match collectively. ABS lets you construct sturdy and practical prototypes that may stand up to rigorous testing and will not warp, shrink or take in moisture.
What colours can be found?
Colours embrace normal white, blue, yellow, black, pink, inexperienced or metal grey colours. Customized colours additionally out there.
How thick are the layers of extruded plastic?
Every layer is between .010 in. (.245 mm) or .013 in. (.33 mm.) of exactly deposited extruded ABS plastic and help materials.
What measurement fashions might be created?
The utmost measurement of every construct is eight x eight x 12 inches (203 x 203 x 305 mm). Bigger items may be constructed in several layers, just like the tales of a constructing or multi-layered cake.
