Test Prints Gallery

I had to wait a long time before I could start this photo gallery, but finally it’s here. I will keep adding test prints here to show you what can be printed on my printer and in what quality.

I printed all the printouts below from the Formlabs PA12 Nylon powder. I used the common mix ratio 70/30 which means that I always add 30% of the fresh powder into the used one.

Key print parameters are as follows:

  • Printer preheating time: <45 minutes
  • Temperature while printing: approx. 175°C
  • Layer height: 100µm
  • Max. scanning speed: about 2,800mm/s
  • Parts weren’t blasted

Some of the presented 3D designs are my own – usually parts of the printer – some were downloaded from Thingiverse.com or Printables.com.
