Vibration-Mitigating Algorithm Increases Speed of 3D Printing - DesignNews

The average 3D printer is a hardworking machine. While the print head zips along the X, Y, and Z axis, it can’t zip too fast, or vibration will cause degradation in the print quality. This is particularly true of smaller, more lightweight printers used by consumers and small businesses. Motors have gotten faster in recent years, but there’s only so fast they can go before the machine begins to “skip counts,” which results in layer registration errors. This can result in wavy “ghosted” surfaces on the printed item at best and comically (and costly) misprinted mistakes at worst. There are limits to what can be done mechanically to reduce vibration. Mechanical fixes involve the addition of material to increase stiffness or damping. This additional material, however, increases the weight and cost of the printer. Stiffer, higher quality parts can also help, but they drive up co...
