Markforged Workshop Series – Custom Belt Guard

Adding safety guards to equipment that is non-standard, legacy, or customized can be a challenge. Additive manufacturing is perfect for one-of-a-kind parts like these. In this video the part is designed and modified several times to get a part that will print optimally and cost as little as possible given the short development cycle.

Like any piece of equipment or process, there will be some inevitable issues with certain parts or processes, and in this case an uneven print bed caused 90 seconds of additional work to remove the supports from one side. This workshop video series is being presented chronologically, with lessons learned and mistakes being included in the videos to help you learn what to realistically expect and how to best overcome challenges when they arise.

If parts of this size or larger are expected, step up to an Industrial printer for larger capacity printing and more accurate bed leveling routines.
