The Test your print package “Impact strength 3 specimens” includes the testing of 3 impact strength specimens and the creation of a test report. The STL file for the printing of the impact strenght specimens is available under Downloads. There you will also find a test report as a sample.
Impact strength explained
The impact resistance is a measure of how well the material can absorb shock and impact energy. kJ / m² (energy per cross-sectional area). An impact strength of 50 kJ / m² corresponds to the energy of a 1 kg heavy weight from a fall height of 20 cm, which is necessary to break a printed sample with a cross section of 40mm².
How it works
1.) Order the desired test package in the shop and download the test specimens.
2.) Print the test specimens with your settings – we offer the testing of three or five test specimens per test.
3.) Send us your test specimens. To protect your specimens from moisture, please send it vacuum packed or in a plastic bag. Fill out the test information sheet with your information.
4.) We will test your samples and send you the detailed test report. Sample reports can be found under Downloads.
5.) Now you know how good your settings are. Compare your values with others and compare the printer settings to optimize your printing process.
