Hi Gregh, Stijn from 3D Hubs here. It seems that someone is reselling one copy of the book for $6.99. The correct price in the US is $29. I'm in touch with Amazon to remove the reseller from the listing, apologies for the confusion.

I understand your concerns @Perry_1 and I'll definitely make sure the article communicates the capabilities and limitations of FDM printers fairly. 

 

The article won't insinuate that the shapes you mention cannot be printed with FDM. Instead, the article will explain why printing such models with FDM is more challenging and requires experience from the hub.

Thanks Perry. Indeed looks like a tough print for a desktop FDM printer. This model could be a good example of an intricate shape.

Thanks, added threads and tall / narrow objects to the list. Watertightness I think is less of a shape characteristic.

For the knowledge base we're writing an article about printing complex shapes. What I'm looking for is a comprehensive list of complex shapes and fits. These shapes and fits will then be covered per technology (e.g. how FDM deals with large overhangs).   What I have now: Large overhangs Intricate shapes Thin walled structures Integrated assemblies Living hinges

Thanks, something that will be covered

Interesting. You say anything more rigid than PLA is not a good idea but on the other hand you did have good success with Colorfab-XT and polycarbonate which are both very rigid materials. Wondering when rigidness does become an obstacle for push-fit parts?

For what types of push-fits a more flexible (e.g. TPU) or soft (e.g. nylon) material would be better?

Stijn here from 3D Hubs. As some of you already know we are working on a knowledge base: An extensive 3D printing resource for professionals.    One article we are working on, written by a hub, discusses the key 3D printing technology (FDM, SLA, SLS, Polyjet) selection- and design considerations for clearance, transitional & interference push-fits.
