Welcome to the 3D Printing Section

This section deals with 3D Printing specifically FFF or Fused filament fabrication. FFF is a process that uses a continuous coil of plastic material that is heated this softened plastic is forced out of the print head's nozzle.

The printer nozzle behaves like a pen drawing the image on the print surface except the ink is melted plastic. Stepper motors precisely move the nozzle to trace out the layer being done, once a full layer is drawn the next layer starts above it and the nozzle draws the next layer. The print is created in 'slices' the thickness of each slice depends on the settings used by the 'slicing' software to prepare the 3D model for printing.
see video

FFF is just one method of creating 3D prints and the printers that use it vary in size also the 3 main axis directions X, Y and Z are defined differently depending on the style of printer/design choices.
