Optimizing cooling

Hi, are there any solutions to optimize cooling. I am thinking about 3D printing parts, external fans or other solutions.

Any tips are welcome.

Hi Gerd,

We indeed have developed an STL file for a 3D-printed 'circular cooling' add-on, as also mentioned in paragraph 2.4 of the Article about oval filament.

Attached you can find the STL file. This can be printed with any material, but bear in mind that it could happen that it gets in contact with hot filament (so a higher temperature resistance would always be beneficial). What materials are you currently working with and which problems are you encountering?

Please let me know if you have further questions about this!

Kind regards,

Timo van der Laak

Best regards,

Timo

Hi Timo,

many thanks for the .stl, I'll give it a try.

I want to increase extrusion speed of PLA (1.75), at moment 6 rpm. Goal > 10 rpm, but filament become oval.

Kind regards

Gerd
