PETG is a material type that is only available for Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) type printers. Those are limited in their achievable resolution by their nozzle size: the Smallest depression in a surface that is printable is about half a line width in XY and 1 layer height in Z. the smallest bulge from a flat surface that can reliably be produced by FDM ...

I assume you mean a resolution of 50 microns (0.05 mm step size) Most FDM printers can produce something useful upto 100 microns. If you want to print with more precision, try resin printers. The reason for this is that an FDM printer uses an extruder with a specific nozzle diameter (typically around 0.4mm and minimum around 0.25 mm). plastic has too much ...

The printer on picture looks like LulzBot TAZ. It could be some prototype or a self-made built or just inspired by it (as it is a digital rendition), because there is no sign of any branding on it. There are similar builds on Thingiverse.

Constriction PTFE-Tubes usually have enough stiffness to not require additional support and constriction from anything but the two end fittings and the stiffness the filament in them provides. In fact, they make great guides for cable management to the heater block! You might want to add some constricting clamps on very long tubes. To do so, zip ties and ...

Although metal casting has been briefly mentioned, another approach to your problem would be to create a silicone mold from your print and cast the part using epoxy or polyurethane, both of which have the desired strength and heat properties. Here is an example of this technique

Do the pieces created with the common 3D printing techniques melt at 100 °C? The problem here is the "common 3d printing techniques". If you mean END USER DESKTOP - yes. PLA, ABS etc. have all glass temperatures (where they get soft) around this number. Melting is not something you care about - because it will deform WAY earlier. Melting is when ...

This works for OctoPI (OctoPrint on a Raspberry Pi). Add the Samba package to your OctoPrint machine. open an SMB connection to that machine from your browser machine Save your STL to /home/pi/.octoprint/uploads on the Raspberry Pi. You can save directly from your slicer the same way.

If you hear it from a floor to the other the only thing to change is the base of the printer. Nothing else matters. CNC Kitchen performed measurements especially to avoid noise being transferred to other rooms, the result is that placing the printer not on elastic feet, but on a single slab of concrete which is placed on top of foam is the best solution and ...
