MakerBot Print is our newest print-prepration software, which supports native CAD files and STL assemblies,
allows you to interact with all your printers via the Cloud, and many other exciting new features.
Hi, I am developing a reference part that can be printed on FDM machines and as well other techniques. I would like share my ideas an hear your comments on my reference part.
A.S.M.E. uses a specific part design to test C.N.C. machines, the A.S.M.E. standard it considers all capabilities one might need to understand in the process of validation such as performance. Some variation of this may be just what is needed for 3D printers. I always choose something simple to evaluate any vertical machining center. I always want to know sizing capabilities, how concentric it can produce a circle and repeat-ability. Angles in all three axis is also evaluated.
It was your question and in looking at your reference part it is unknown what the print would be evaluated to.
