• What is the difference between polycarbonate and Acrylic?

    Polycarbonate and acrylic are both types of plastic materials with similar characteristics, but they have some distinct differences. Here are the key differences between polycarbonate and acrylic: Strength and Impact Resistance: Polycarbonate is significantly stronger and more impact-resistant than acrylic. It is known for its exceptional toughness and can withstand high levels of impact without shattering. Acrylic, on the other hand, is more brittle...
  • Why should I enclose my 3D printer?

    Enclosing a 3D printer, especially if it is an open-frame design, offers several benefits and can be advantageous in many situations. Here are some reasons why you might consider enclosing your 3D printer: Improved Temperature Control: By enclosing the 3D printer, you can create a controlled environment with more stable temperature conditions. This is particularly important when printing materials like ABS, which are prone...
