Shrink Compensation for VisiJet Part Material
Material shrinkage occurs in thermoplastics as they transition from liquid state to solid (change in density). In the case of photo-polymers used in the Multi-Jet building process, this shrinkage can occur during the curing stage of printing. 3DSPRINT has features built in to allow a user to compensate for the natural shrinkage of the material and also fine tune the accuracy of a part. The VisiJet Material Shrink Compensation Tools, (see 3DS Central) are provided for this purpose. The kit includes instructions, a worksheet, two .STL files and will explain the process for entering shrink compensation and fine tuning part accuracy using scaling factors.
