Pete-Bot (P-Bot) Print Time

Written by Railan Oviedo (Manufacturing)

Introduction

For this semester’s version of the Paper-Bot (now dubbed “P-Bot”), one of the design requirements is to have the chassis 3D-printed as a single piece. After creating the 3D models, the approximate print time for the chassis are approximated through the use of Cura software. All print time estimations are made under the assumption that a Prusa i3 is used with the Coarse Quality (0.4 mm) and 20% infill. For information on the differences between the version, see the Rapid Prototype, Motor Assembly, Print Optimization post.
