Project Development and Results

Documenting Results

Document your results based on these parameters. 

Size Total size of the printer (length x width x height).
Materials/Components List of materials used in building the prototype.
Print materials List and type of print materials used for printing.
Extruders List each type of extruder used.
3D software  Name of the 3D application.
Time to build

Time taken to build the prototype (in Engineering Days - including research and meetings). 

Tip: Use Clockify or any other time management tool.

Time to design object Time taken to design the 3D model.
Time to print Time to print the complete 3D object.

Documenting Recommendations

A detailed report of the recommendation must accompany the results. The recommendation must specify the following:

  • Types of print materials that are suitable for 3D printing
  • Types of extruders that each print material should use
  • Design specifications document for the printer build
  • Recommended 3D software to use
  • Precautions to be taken when setting up the 3D printer
  • Comparison of time taken to print the object on this printer versus a regular 3D printer.
