The Optimization of FDM 3D Printer’s Structure Based on Finite Element Analysis
Hangzhou Dianzi University, Hangzhou, China
2 Hangzhou Dianzi University Library, Hangzhou, China
In view of the forming accuracy of the 3D printer, the paper, from the structure of the printer itself, discussed the influence on the precision of the printer via improving the structure of 3D printer. A typical 3D printer, such as a common type of FDM, was selected, and SOLIDWORKS software was used for solid modeling, after establishing the model, the finite element analysis was carried out on the whole structure model to obtain the deformation characteristics and the main vibration model of the printer. On the basis of finite element analysis, the influence of the level shaft bearing diameter, material properties and symmetry of the parts on the overall mechanical properties of the printer was discussed respectively. On this basis, the overall structure of the machine has been optimized and achieved remarkable results.
