Determine Quiver print profiles necessary for release
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

We will need to determine how many profiles we want at release. Do we need three profiles per material? How many and what combinations do we need to support the dual tool head?

Talked to @anolen today about what profiles and materials we need to support at release. We came up with a list based on what we think, but we need to have that verified by what we will say in marketing materials and in how we are planning to sell this printer's capabilities (e.g. we can't talk about how useful living hinges are if we don't support a rigid/flexible material combination).

Here's what's listed in the spec sheet:

Priority order:
All standard filaments – ABS, PLA, Co-polyester, Polymides, PVA, BVOH, PETG
Flexy filaments
Abrasive filaments – Glass filled, Carbon Fiber (stretch)

The spec sheet is on own if this information is needed in the future.

Here is a rough draft of the list I plan to test out, please comment any additions, adjustments or advice!

PLA + PLA (different colors)
PVA + PLA
ABS + ABS (different colors)
ABS + HIPS
PLA + NINJAFLEX
ABS + NINJAFLEX
NINJAFLEX + NINJAFLEX (different colors)
PETG +PETG (different colors)
PETG + PVA
PETG + NINJAFLEX
NYLON + ???????

I would like to clarify that the NYLON + ??? means that we want to test which materials in the list above will bond well to polyamides (nylons) in order to produce unique engineering solutions as single prints. e.g. a rigid body with abrasion resistant/smoother bushings/contact surfaces printed in nylon.

Status Update: Waiting for tested data to determine.

@anolen are we gonna test any filaments with the water soluble material? Like the abrasive filaments with water soluble.

@MikeR Not to my knowledge at this time. I am not sure if Quiver is going to have HS nozzles or Nickle plated copper. And even if we do HS, we may run into an issue with the smaller extrusion diameter (0.5 vs 0.8 and 1.2)

@anolen Quiver will have HS nozzles and a HS hob

It sounds like something I would want to test then. We will have to recommend they bake the part after soaking it tho since its nylon and it will get weak once it absorbs all the moisture it can. Testing all that will depend on time but I'll add it to the list!

Water Solubles should work really well with the filled PA's. It sticks very well to all our existing nylons
