Title: 3D printed screw nuts - horizontal or vertical printing position is better?. Watch on youtube: https://youtu.be/KoO-1Inj06g
In this video I am testing optimal position for screw nuts, to find out, which one is stronger - horizontal or vertical position. In my previous video I was testing optimal 3D printing position for bolts and there was significant difference, horizontal printing was stronger, but let's find out will it be the case with the nuts too. In this video I am testing torque with M10 nuts and pulling test with M6.
1:32 Analyzing in Slicer
2:51 3D printing
4:01 Torque test
7:29 Pulling test
Materials and methods:
Prusa MK3 3D printer, 0.4mm nozzle, 0.15mm layer height, 220-225°C temperature (too much for PLA, but I wanted strongest layer adhesion). Printed with 6 perimeters and 100% infill. Software I used: PrusaSlicer and Fusion360. 150 kg hanging scale.
