new 3d printing technique friction welding

During the design and structure of the custom 14.5 liter (3.8 mill) aquaponic systems, a huge platform and also insure was printed out. The parts have been too large to publish whole, and so that the platform, the case’s faces, and the cover were printed in loops.

The platform and top cover proved easily attached by way of a process known as friction welding (clarified in detail within this Hackaday link). Where two pieces must be welded together A rotary tool having a short period of 3 d printing filament can be spun. The friction from the filament fuses the plastic and also a bead could be formed into one other out of one side of the weld.
