Abstract

Additive manufacturing (AM) offers a broad variety of applications in numerous areas of personal and industrial use. Nevertheless, there are numerous issues that occur throughout the 3D printing process, including the typical faults of printed parts, anomalous printing state that is difficult to detect in real-time, low printing precision, and unstable printing state. This research focuses on a method for real-time state monitoring of a fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing process using vibro-acoustic signals. As one of the important aspects of a printing process, nozzle temperature has been recommended to indicate the printing state. Impact hammer test and COMSOL simulation are used to examine the frequency domain of the printing bed. In this research, the link between the frequency domain of the printing bed and the temperature of the nozzle based on vibro-acoustic signals is examined. Consequently, the strategy can serve as a benchmark for monitoring an FFF 3D printing process.
