Fewer bad vibrations mean faster 3D printers

The same item printed at accelerated speed without the algorithms (top), at regular speed without them (bottom left), and at accelerated speed WITH them (bottom right) While the capabilities of today’s 3D printers may be impressive, the machines still take a long time to print all but the smallest of items. Led by associate professor Chinedum Okwudire, however, scientists at the University of Michigan have found a way of greatly reducing print times without any sacrifice in quality, and without any hardware upgrades. The faster that a 3D printer is working, the more it vibrates – this is particularly […]
