Rotary 3D Print

Benefits:
Process (more details in manual):‚Äč

Generate CAD file of the final part

  • Must be the same ID as the print bed/mandrel (can be any diameter, but must match)

  • Fully compatible with multi-material printing

  • Compatible with hybrid operations, with additional steps

1.

Use the Diabase Wizard to assist toolpath generation

  • Automatically "unwrap" CAD file

  • Slice normally in Simplify3D

  • Automatically re-map onto correct machine axes

2.

Configure machine for rotary operations

  • Install rotary axis and optional tailstock (30 seconds install)

  • Install round stock in ER32 collet or rotary vise

  • Run macro to configure A-axis for printing and auto bed levelling

  • Home axis and level bed/mandrel

3.

Print then remove part from mandrel

  • TPU can be released directly from mandrel with solvent and a long prying tool

  • Rigid material will require a sacrificial layer - either a layer on the mandrel, or a layer of printed support material (preferably soluble)

4.
