Wonderful.

(Mike Kelly) #3

did you try and calculate the spring factor?

(Rashmi SB) #4

@Mike_Kelly_Mike_Make by using formula force÷ displacement= spring factor

I’m interested to know about 3D printer. Basically how it works?I’m thinking of giving this topic to my students for making project.

@Mike_Kelly_Mike_Make No, I never did that. For the project that I used this for I didn’t really need to know the spring factor.

@Rashmi_SB So what exactly would you like to know?

@Derek_Cameron I would like to know how 3D printer works?Product which we get with the help of this will have same working as that of actual one.Few days back I’ve attended open house at Delhi IIT.Presentation was given by one of the professor. That was only power point presentation. I found it very interesting

I know how to calculate it I was asking if he did.

Thanks @Derek_Cameron I wonder how strong it is…
