|XY resolution for large WSF printer [message #62237] Sun, 17 February 2013 15:31 UTC
It says in the material page that the powder layer is roughly 0.12mm stepping (Z) but what are the dimensions on a minimum XY dot ?|
I assume because it is a laser it can theoretically be infinitely small, but in reality lets imagine we have just one layer of powder what is the smallest "dot" we can create ?
I assume it will be round, if so what is the distance between two of these dots where some form of fusion between the two will occur, and what is the distance between these two dots where they would no longer be even slightly fused ?
Is there an accuracy margin for XY ? ( i know it says 0.15mm, but i assume its for 3d objects, to account for stepping etc...)
Would the same properties propagate if we add layers but not move the dot, as in just building up a straight line (cylinder) into Z ?
I know it would instantly break once the powder is removed, but still...
