Introducing GiantArm D200 cloud 3D printer-part 5–Filament detector

Believe that many 3D printer users, either beginners or professionals, are not alien to this frustrating scene: when you are excited about almost finishing your complicated or large model, the filament unexpectedly runs out, forcing you to restart the long-long print journey. At this moment, the only words escaping from your lips should and could be “Dame it!!” How we wish there would be a defect detector to save your beloved prints and our fragile and strong hearts tortured by constant printing failures!

Estimating whether you have enough filament left on the spool to finish the print has always be a difficult task. More often than not, we find ourselves with an uncompleted print and the printer is always left printing in the air caused by filament outage or fracture.

To get you out of the dilemma, a simple practical filament detector is added to GiantArm D200 3D Printer.It is designed to enable your printer temporally pause when it tests the un-present of the filament and saves the uncompleted printing file. The extruder will move away after paused to avoid destroying the printed model under high temperature, combined with our resurrection system, you can then change the spool and resume the printing job.


The implementation of this new filament detector involves some simple technical elements. Its core component is a detection module. The following makes a brief introduction of this additional function. When the filament goes through the detection module smoothly, the mechanical endstop is triggered, sending a [1] signal to the control board. Under this circumstance, the filament icon will be shown on the LCD screen. In contrast, when the filament runs out or is broken, the mechanical endstop in the detection module is not triggered, giving the signal [0] of filament outage to the control board, and the LCD screen will display filament outage to users and the buzzer will go off. In this case, the print will automatically enter pause mode and wait for reinsertion of filament.

The employment of filament detector would, in a large measure, decrease the time spent on repetitive printing and the cost of filament. Most importantly, with this auxiliary function, 3D printing fanciers would really get themselves out of those annoying situations and enjoy smooth and quality printing.

Unexpected power failure?

Need to stop and change filament?

Filament fracture or outage?

Printing in your fragmentation time?

Want your printer to take a nap?

Looking after your printer as a printer-sitter?

You may have suffered all of the above troubles during printing.

To solve the above issues, a resurrection system, that is, the break-resuming capability has been added to GiantArm D200 3D printer.

Active or passive interrupt, the break-resuming capability enables you to restart the printer and resume the interrupted printing job at the same place as if it never stopped.

When power failure takes place, electrical system will trigger the break-resuming loop. The energy storage unit will provide enough power for saving the current printing status.

Meanwhile, the printing will stop and the building platform will drop down to keep away from the object. In this way, the unfinished print will not be melted and destroyed by the nozzle.

Change filament easily: multiple-color printing and sectioned printing enabled; even single extruder can deliver multiple-color printout.

Large models=long printing time???

Rome is not built in a day! Prints do not have to be finished at one time.

Break-resuming capability helps to continue your printing in your spare time.

Now you can totally say good buy to a printer sitter and your prints will never be destroyed by power failure.

Enjoy 3D printing!

3D printing postgrad course will be offer this September in UK university

Anglia Ruskin has become the first university in the UK to offer a dedicated Additive Manufacturing(3D printing) postgraduate course. The MSc, available to graduates from a range of STEM backgrounds, is being supported by a grant from the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE).

Earlier this month, former Education Secretary Lord Baker called upon Britain to put a 3D printer in every primary school. Although that proposal is unlikely to be realized in the immediate future, 3D printers are being taken very seriously at the other end of the education ladder. Anglia Ruskin, a public university with campuses in Cambridge, Chelmsford, and Peterborough, will this year offer a 1-2 year Additive Manufacturing(3D printing) postgraduate course aimed at engineering and physical sciences graduates. Students enrolled on the course will be able to access workshops and engineering labs which have seen over £2 million of investment over the last three years.

The new course will take place at The Faculty of Science & Technology at Anglia Ruskin’s Chelmsford campus, which boasts a number of additive manufacturing(3D printing) facilities at its MedBIC Innovation Centre. These include desktop and commercial 3D printers, as well as direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) equipment. Students working and researching in the Innovation Centre will be able to design, develop, and test engineering solutions using state-of-the-art design software and printing equipment, and will have access to a range of 3D printing materials, from plastics to high-end metal compounds.

The Additive Manufacturing (3D printing) MSc will teach students theoretical and technical courses, but will also be highly vocational, challenging students to carry out a project within a real business to solve real-world manufacturing problems. The course will therefore equip students with both technical 3D printing skills and first-hand business experience, both of which will help the postgraduate learners with their future careers in additive manufacturing. An understanding of the business and production issues surrounding additive manufacturing will be made paramount, while emphasis will also be placed on the development of problem-solving, critical, analytical, interpersonal, and computational skills.

“Our course, which begins this September, will help students to develop a career in advanced manufacturing engineering, or improve their skills if they are already working in the industry,” said Dr Habtom Mebrahtu, Deputy Head of Engineering and the Built Environment at Anglia Ruskin and Course Leader for the MSc in Additive Manufacturing(3D printing) . “Students may want to work as a production or research engineer, mechanical designer, or technical lead working directly in engineering and design, or use this degree as a step towards a career in operations, project management, or consultancy.”

The course will cover a range of topics, including 3D CAD modeling, business strategy, and engineering management, and will teach students to produce functional 3D printed products and prototypes for use in the biomedical and aviation sectors, amongst others. Students can choose to take the course in one year (full time) or two years (part time), at a total cost of £7,100 (UK/EU) or £11,700 (international).

Core Modules of Anglia Ruskin’s Additive Manufacturing(3D printing) MSc:

  • 3D CAD and Digital Techniques
  • Additive Manufacturing(3D printing) Strategy
  • Computer Aided Engineering Analysis
  • Innovative Product Design and Manufacture
  • Engineering Management Systems
  • Post Processing of Additive Manufactured (AM) products
  • Industrially Based Project

To help get the new Additive Manufacturing(3D printing) program off the ground, Anglia Ruskin received funding from HEFCE as part of a pilot scheme to promote engineering and computer science conversion courses.

3D printing is many things, and one of them, much like the Internet, is a generational marker. Today’s kids are growing up with 3D printing in their classrooms, and by the time they reach the workforce, I imagine it’ll be second nature to them – again, much like the Internet. However, 3D printing is becoming ubiquitous in the workforce now, and many of the current generation of professionals are faced with learning a brand new skill, one they may just have heard of for the first time a year ago. It can be a bit daunting to say the least, but thankfully that learning doesn’t have to be on the job, under pressure – there are plenty of 3D printing courses out there that are open to anyone.

Colorado State University is offering an online Foundations of 3D Printing course open to students and non-students of the school alike. A collaboration between CSU Online and the Idea-2-Product 3D Printing Laboratory, the course is being led by Dr. David Prawel, a mechanical engineering professor and the founder of the Idea-2-Product lab. Dr. Prawel has been working with 3D technology for 36 years and has taught several 3D printing courses at CSU. He believes that the online course can help companies to learn how to implement the technology to its full potential.

“We think we can reach so many more people and help so many more people get up to speed on this technology by making it available in a much easier-to-consume format…It’s not hands-on, of course, but it offers a lot of detail about what it takes to do 3D printing, the software tools required, and the major types of machines out there,” Dr. Prawel said.

The course is offered as four modules: Basic Principles I, Basic Principles II, Additive Processing I, and Additive Processing II. For each course completed, participants will earn a digital badge that can be added to résumés or LinkedIn profiles; completion of all four modules will result in a Mastery Badge, which is intended to show employers that the participant possesses full competency in the technology.

As 3D printing becomes more of a presence in many industries, proof of fluency in the technology can be a significant advantage in the workforce. Each module is a week long and can be taken at your convenience; tuition for Basic Principles I and II is $165 each. Additive Processing I and II cost $185 each. For the entire “Mastery Bundle,” the cost is $650.

“Rather than being thrown a whole full-semester class, you meander through all the different modules and assemble your own class, and your own expertise level according to the types of technology that best fit your organization,” said Dr. Prawel.
