Drifting of print in 3D printers and RepRaps

Published on in Category 3DPriting

Here are the some of the most common reasaon why 3D Prints are drifting MOTOR BELT OR PULLEY: First thing you need to check is motor pulley. it may be slipping from time to time. You could mark your motor axis and your pulley so it’s easier to identify a slipping pulley. LOSE BELT: Make sure the belt is not too lose, so it slips. ENDSTOPS/LIMIT SWITCH FAULTY: Does the limit switchs are hit during print.

How stepper motor works

Published on in Category Electronics

A stepper motor is nothing but a special DC, So Understanding DC motors Construction and working will help us understand the Stepper Motor. DC Motor Typical DC motors use a permanent magnet in stator and a electromagnet (electrical coil) as rotor. The armature experiences a force described by the left hand rule. The current flows in the coil causes it to becomes electro magnet (its field runs from its north to south poles).
