The printing files were adjusted for next class' print. Our group received a tutorial from one of the TA's in how to setup the printing settings and programing new specifications.
The "Big Red" printer used had a broken pulley. Our idea for the next class was to print a pulley which had a greater material strength. In order to do that, we configured the printer settings so that the temperature and the diameter of the filament was adjusted.
The printer we were handling had a variety of heating problems. The printer we were using, in this case Beta, did not maintain a fixed heating temperature of 190 Celsius.
The gold printer was broken. The z axis was fixed by our team member Luiz Southier.
The professor hosted a presenter who showed his experiences in additive manufacturing. Several General Design principles were presented in order to make new components.
