  • A Glue and 3D Printer Question

    I am working on a project related to 3D printing. This would be limited to the small "home owner" printers. If one wanted to "Glue" some Brass or aluminum parts to a printed part what is the adhesive of choice. Realizing there are several choices for the printed material, what combinations would work the best? A further constraint would be that it be appropriate to use in a public school classroom.

    Thanks in advance

    Epoxy is the only thing that comes to mind for two different materials. Can't see any problem in a school environment. Bob.

      One of the gel type superglues made for model builders would be my first choice. Built a stich and glue boat model at makerfaire with it and it was fast work.

        How about hot glue for a glue gun? Just run it through the 3D printer.

          How about designing a snap-in feature to lock the part in place without adhesive?

            Depends on the 3D plastic material. Superglue works well - especially on flat smooth surfaces. Had an issue at work the other day. Someone accidentally super glued a 2" diameter aluminum disc to a granite work surface. Took a lot of acetone and careful effort to remove it.
