Title (EN) CALIBRATION AND ALIGNMENT OF ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING DEPOSITION HEADS
(FR) ÉTALONNAGE ET ALIGNEMENT DE TÊTES D'IMPRESSION 3D
Abstract:
(EN) A three-dimensional (3D) printer for additive manufacturing includes a frame (200), a first calibration device (122) coupled to the frame, a dispensing system (120) having a cartridge holder (224) with a sensor (114, 116) mounted at a location relative to the cartridge holder (224), and a multi-axis positioning system (118) for moving the dispensing system (120) relative to the frame (200). Methods for calibrating the 3D printer are also disclosed.
(FR) L'invention concerne une imprimante en trois dimensions (3D), qui comprend un cadre (200), un premier dispositif d'étalonnage (122) accouplé au cadre, un système de distribution (120) pourvu d'un support de cartouche (224) avec un capteur (114, 116) monté à un emplacement par rapport au support de cartouche (224), et un système de positionnement (118) à axes multiples pour déplacer le système de distribution (120) par rapport au cadre (200). L'invention concerne également des procédés pour étalonner l'imprimante 3D.
