À propos Palmers Print Farm

Specialized in prototypes, to full CNC production runs. Experts with pneumatics and high pressure air systems.

ABS/PETG Customers .... My printing preference is strength over cosmetics. In order to create a strong part the temperature must be high enough to fuse the layers. In doing so, this can create artifacts, warpage and or strings coming from the parts. I will do my best to find a happy medium between quality and strength. If quality is of the utmost importance. I can lower the temperature and sacrifice a little bit of strength. If strength is important, we can double the wall thickness and increase the infill to 50%. Solid infill parts like to warp and take 5 times as long to print.

In FDM printing, its a game of give and take as no filament meets the requirements of every single project.
