Seeking a potential of low carbon-based energy use for additive
manufacturing, we present a preliminary experimental test using open source IoT
tools on FDM (Fused Deposit Modelling) type of 3D printing. In our test we
determine and categorize the electricity consumption of processes of a commercial
grade FDM printer using a custom-built energy monitor. Our tests indicate
that this model of FDM type 3D printer consumes between 22%-33% more energy
when printing vertical volumes (Z-axis on 3D printing plate). Based on these
tests we present a potential for IoT based low carbon FDM 3D printing using
open-source data, hardware and software. With this the article’s contribution is
two-fold. One as a study on energy and environmental impact of additive manufacturing
and secondly as a potential and scope for IoT applications for facilitating
low carbon additive manufacturing.
