We have FDM and we make FDM machines. Today one of a customer asked me will these FDM can be used for making Engineering grade prototypes? He wanted to print parts and wanted to fit as it is without post-processing. I was stunned and unable to answer properly.
I wanted 3d printing experts opinion on building a higher grade FDM machine.
We use Hiwin linear guides, Wantai motors, Powge GT2 belts and pulleys, E3d original hot end, MKS Gen V1.4 boards, with CoreXY structure (4mm Aluminium for Top CoreXY & for X carriage) with Marlin, BL Touch bed sensor etc.
What are the components we can change or we can use to get those higher tolerance levels?
I will be ready for the price to get the higher levels of accuracy.
Thanks in advance.
