LEARN THE BASICS OF 3D PRINTING


NOULEI FILAMENT

  • Noulei PLA FILAMENT

    Noulei PLA Filament is the best and most consistent filament optimized for use in Noulei 3D Printers. Safe for the classroom, office, or home, this filament is non-toxic and easy-to-print with minimal warping or curling.

  • Noulei SILK PLA FILAMENT

    Created for Unique work, Noulei Silk Filament allows you to print Excellent gloss. This filament is tested and optimized to print reliably. Gold, Copper, Bronze, Antique Gold close to metallic colors.


PRINTING WORKFLOW

To print on a Noulei 3D Printer, you must obtain a 3D file, prepare it in Noulei Print, and send it to your Noulei 3D printer.


STEP 1: 3D FILE

In order to 3D print, you must have a 3D file. Here are a few ways to get a file:

  • Design an object to print in a 3D modeling or CAD program.

  • Scan an existing object with a 3D scanner.

  • Find a file online from websites


STEP 2: PREPARE

Before sending a 3D file to your Noulei, you must prepare the file. Preparing an object in our softwares translates your objects into a language the 3D printer can understand. This is referred to as slicing.

Slicing Software like these Cura,Repitier-host,Simplify3D .etc


RAFTS AND SUPPORTS
  • PRINT WITH OVERHANGS

    An overhang is when a layer extends outward, potentially unsupported, over the previous layer.

    If the model of the MakerBot PLA printer has a large overhang angle (measured from the vertical axis), then you will need to print with support material.

  • WHAT ARE RAFTS & SUPPORTS?

    Supports are printed scaffolding for overhangs. You can turn on supports in Slicing Software.

    A Raft helps with adhesion to the build plate by laying down an even flat foundation.

  • COMPLETED PRINT

    Both rafts and supports are physically removed after the print is finished. Once rafts and supports are removed, your model is complete!


INFILL PERCENTAGE
  • 0% infill
  • 10% infill
  • 40% infill

NUMBER OF SHELLS

Shells are the outer layers that make up the surface of your prints. Adding more shells does not affect its external dimensions, but can make your object stronger.

  • 1 Shell
  • 2 Shells
  • 5 Shells

LAYER HEIGHT AND PRINT RESOLUTION

Layer Height, also known as Print Resolution, changes the surface quality of a 3D print. Low resolution means the layers are thicker, objects print faster, and the surface quality is rougher. High resolution means the layers are thinner, objects print slower, and the surface is smoother. We suggest printing at our standard print quality.

  • Low 0.3mm (300 microns)
  • Standard 0.2mm (200 microns)
  • High 0.1mm (100 microns)

STEP 3: PRINT

Follow these steps before printing: load the filament,Heating the print head and printing platform. If you have any questions about your specific model Noulei 3D printer, please refer to the manuals
