3D Printing with MatterControl by Joan Horvath PDF

By Joan Horvath

In 3D Printing With MatterControl, Joan Horvath and wealthy Cameron, the crew at the back of Mastering 3D Printing, clarify step by step easy methods to use the MatterControl software, which lets you keep an eye on many universal forms of 3D printers (including either cartesian and delta sort machines). 3D Printing With MatterControl can stand by myself, or it may be a better half to Mastering 3D Printing to teach you ways to put in, configure, and use most sensible practices together with your printer and printing software program. The e-book contains either step-by-step software program walkthroughs and case experiences with average 3D revealed items.

Whether you're a "maker" or a instructor of makers, 3D Printing with MatterControl will allow you to get the main from your printer with the recent normal for open resource 3D printing software.

While there are books to be had on 3D printers, or even a couple of on software program to make versions for printers, there are few strong resources masking the software program that really controls those printers. MatterControl is rising because the top open resource software program for 3D printers, and 3D Printing With MatterControl covers this new normal during this short book.

What you’ll learn

  • 3D version fundamentals and cutting the model
  • Controlling the printer and utilizing G code

19 Chapter 2 ■ What Is MatterControl? Figure 2-4. 3D view of the layers of the whole print Figure 2-5 is a 2D view of one layer partway done (the slider on the bottom controls how far you are through a layer; the one on the side selects the layer). Being able to move around virtually within a print is very powerful, because sometimes a 3D model has subtle problems that are not handled correctly by later steps in the process, and you can avoid wasting materials and time by seeing what will happen first.

Rather than adjusting the platform to be parallel to the machine’s axes of movement, Automatic Print Leveling adjusts the coordinate system of the print to make the axes parallel to the platform. So if your platform is tilted, your print will be tilted to match. Some printers include sensors that are used to probe the height of the platform, and these perform auto-leveling internally, so they do not need this MatterControl feature. For printers that do not have sensors for auto-leveling, MatterControl is able to perform this compensation before sending G-code to the printer.

FreeCAD runs on Mac, Windows, and Linux machines. 45 Chapter 4 ■ Making a 3D Model A common (but expensive) engineering tool is the Solidworks program from Dassault Systèmes. Solidworks is designed to create real engineering projects and as such is a good end-to-end program to go from concept to final dimensioned parts. It does take a while to become proficient in Solidworks, however, and cost can be a barrier. Solidworks is only available for Windows. Google’s Sketchup program is focused on making it easy to lay out an architectural project, including a large library of many common home fixtures from various manufacturers.
