|Printing tubes? [message #58831] Tue, 18 December 2012 19:36 UTC
Recently I designed some flowers posted here|
The stems i designed are simple tubes with internal diameter of 2.1mm , wall thickness is 1.1mm. The tube has printed correctly. It appears to have a hole running all the way through (I can drill to the length of the bit , and the material removed was in powder form).
After a few different attempt im still unsuccessful in removing the powder deeper within the tube.
My question is :
What is the minimum internal diameter for not only printing a tube but being able to clear it with ease?
Since SLS parts have a somewhat hydrophobic effect would bathing in something like Isopropanol help loosen the powder more?
Oh i got a new camera, and took this photo ..... shame to waste it
