3D Printing Timing Pulleys

3D Printing Timing Pulleys


Over the last few months several friends and myself have been planning and launching a startup that is focused on building a high-end props for haunted houses using the latest technology available. One of the bigger challenges we have faced is prototyping on the fly. One of our props utilizes a timing belt to supply its motion, and nailing down the speed / torque ratio is crucial for the props functionality.

Quick review of Voltivo's Excelfil 3mm Candy Yellow ABS filament

I spent some time tonight with Voltivo's Excelfil 3mm Candy Yellow ABS and the word amazing does not begin to describe it. I printed out two of these faceted vases in about an hour total. Each vase cosisted of a three-layer base and a two-wall verticle shell. I was expecting the Excelfil Candy Yellow ABS to perform well, but I can honestly say that this filament prints better than anything I have tried before. It measures a consistant 3.01mm and fits in my Lulzbot Taz 3 snugly.
