2. The value of the product
Effective use in hot weather or hot countries
New structures for easy assembling & printing stability
As the amount of the people who can use the 3D printer effectively increases, more people will be able to have a chance to develop their own high value-added product which has competitiveness within limited finance. We believe this can be one of several ways to enrich all our lives with technology development. But some of the printing problems (Speed, Adhesion, etc.) reduce the enjoyment of 3D printing.
The Opus 3D printer is also developed in the process of problem-solving (for heat-creep, bed adhesion, support removal, high-speed printing, odor, etc.), and we hope people can enjoy the 3D printing more conveniently, effectively, and regardless of their environment (such as location or weather) by our products.
1) Use in hot weather or hot countries
The actual value of Opus 3D printer can be found through the use in hot weather.
PLA is one of the most used material for 3D printing, because it is a biodegradable eco-frendly material with economic price, and it is easy to print. (Relatively less contraction and tolerable odor) But because the heat resistance of PLA is low, when we print PLA in too hot weather or in the chamber, we often experience the nozzle clogging caused by filament thermal expansion in the radiator.
To increase radiator cooling performance, powerful 5015 fan is installed with V6 radiator, and the fan guide is designed to condense the airflow to the radiator.
Opus-200(Single ver. with wall) can print faster although the room temperature falls 10 ℃ below. And also Opus-200 can print PLA slowly (50 mm/s, layer height: 0.1 mm with 2nd nozzle heating) for better printing quality even when the room temperature is around 36℃.
The Ideas about a product can be generated by anyone and anywhere. But the most of home users don't want to waste too much electricity for the air conditioner or heater for 3D printing. I hope this product can be a useful tool for them.
2) New structures for printing stability
The arrangement of the bushing in the print-head newly designed to reduce a print-head tilting angle caused by complex factors such as print-head inertia, force applied to the bushing for print-head movement, and bearing tolerance. And the guide rods structure located on each side of the printer for X, Y-axis movement is also newly designed to use this modified cross rod gentry is described above. ABS Injection molding parts are used for lightweight and parts toughness.
(※ The values in the drawing are assumed when the bushing tolerance is 0.2 mm, to prove the advantage of modified structure. The actual values can be lower.)
3) Easy assembling
All parts are designed to be located by contact with other parts and all guide rods are assembled by penetrating other parts. Time for frame assembling can be reduced with an electrical screwdriver.
4) Wall installable structure
Various sheet materials such as MDF, acrylic, steel, etc. can be used as a chamber wall for soundproofing, heat conservation or odor exhaust. All parts including spool holder are located inside of the 3D printer, and the filament can be dried by bed-heating.
