Under the magnifying glass
We are testing the print capability of the new BadPrinter2 and, in particular, we are trying to make a systematic work to check every single aspect of the quality of a 3D printed parts, so we will check retraction, oozing, dimensional precision, minimum layer height, bridging, speed etc..
Today we concentrate on X, Y position precision, but in particular regarding layer stacking precision and consistency of layer extrusion. We made some very simple and small test pieces with 0.2 mm resolution and check the pieces under a 20X magnifying glass and the resulting photos are very interesting.
The layer stacking is clearly visible and the result is very good with a very good consistency in the deposition of the material, so we are very happy with these first tests, next step to reduce the layer heigth and find the limit.
