How to Estimate Deflection in Your Open Builds ProjectsUpdate: maleuffy created this handy
While designing buildings and structures, engineers calculate the amount a beam will bend, or deflect under load. The same formulas can be used to estimate how much a V-slot profile will bend, which could be an important consideration for 3D printers and other builds.
Please download the included how to file to learn how you can calculate these values for your Builds.
Thanks goes out to OpenBuilds Team Member Rob Stehlik for putting this Resource paper together
