Product Description

Complete Shock Absorber

Disclaimer: Note that 3D printed products are not intended for intensive use, and lack the capabilities of production objects. Moreover, the print tolerances are a bit tight and printed parts may require a bit of cleaning and sanding.

Welcome to my garage!

I wanted to check the equivalence between theoretical mechanical values of the Strong&Flexible material and the real outcome.

For this, I edited a new material with the mechanical features of Strong Flexible and transposed these into the Finite Element Method (FEM) program, I designed a printable shock absorber and finally I tested both, the FEM an the real spring.

Take a look at video! :-)

There is a ~18% gap between theoretical (FEM results, see above image) and practical results. This is an acceptable result when we consider the nature of the manufacturing process and the precision of this (spring section is only 4 mm2!).

Amortiguador Completo

Advertencia: Tenga en cuenta que los productos impresos en 3D no están destinados para un uso intensivo, y carecen de las capacidades de los objetos de producción. Por otra parte, las tolerancias de impresión son relativas y las piezas pueden requerir de un poco de limpieza y lijado.

Bienvenido a mi garaje!

Quería comprobar la equivalencia entre los valores mecánicos teóricos y reales del material Stong&Flexible.

Para ello, he editado un nuevo material con las características mecánicas de Strong Flexible y los he pasado al programa de elementos finitos (FEM), diseñé un amortiguador para imprimirlo y, por último, he probado el resorte con el FEM y con el modelo real.

Échale un vistazo al video! :-)

Finalmente, encontré un desfase del orden del ~18% entre los resultados teóricos (ver imagen superior) y los prácticos. Esto es un resultado aceptable si tenemos en cuenta la naturaleza del proceso de fabricación, la precisión de este y las diferencias entre el modelo ensayado y el real (la sección del muelle es de sólo 4 mm2!).
