3D Printing | Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF/FDM)
Steady Filament Flow
The Fused Filament Fabrication is a form of additive manufacturing where filament is fused together to fabricate a solid part. It is an extrusion process where the object is built by depositing molten material layer-by-layer and frequently makes use of Carbon Fiber Composites. The building platform is raised by a small distance and a new layer of filament is deposited.
One issue for a good 3D printed product is the heat distribution of the base. Uneven temperature distribution may lead to unwanted shrinking effects, especially for large scale objects. Measuring the nozzle of the extruder gives feedback of the function itself, if the filament is still moving and it can also provide the control of extruder temperature for steady and even filament flow.
