  • Publication number: 20190143453
    Abstract: In a three-dimensional printing method example, a metallic build material is applied. A positive masking agent is selectively applied on at least a portion of the metallic build material. The positive masking agent includes a radiation absorption amplifier that is compatible with the metallic build material. The metallic build material is exposed to radiation from a spatially broad, high energy light source to melt the portion of the metallic build material in contact with the positive masking agent to form a layer. The radiation absorption amplifier i) has an absorbance for the radiation that is higher than an absorbance for the radiation of the metallic build material, or ii) modifies a surface topography of the at least the portion of the metallic build material to reduce specular reflection of the radiation off of the at least the portion of the metallic build material, or both i) and ii).

  • Publication number: 20190149698
    Abstract: A method is described in which sets of corresponding colorimetric values are obtained. In a set, a colorimetric value is associated with a device color. A number of device colors are selected according to the color differences between colorimetric values associated with the same device color. A color calibration pattern is elaborated for a printer to be calibrated using the selected device colors and calibration is performed using the sets of colorimetric values.

  • Publication number: 20190143711
    Abstract: A printing device comprises a droplet generator for generating a droplet of printing fluid, a droplet detector for detecting a generated droplet of printing fluid, and a controller. The droplet detector is moveable along an axis. The controller is to cause the droplet detector to be positioned at a known location along the axis, cause the droplet generator to generate a droplet, receive a measurement signal from the droplet detector, and determine a location of the droplet generator based on the received measurement signal and the known location.

  • Publication number: 20190143672
    Abstract: The present subject matter describes a system for pumping ink. In an example implementation, the system includes a piston assembly having a lower chamber and an upper chamber. The lower chamber has an inlet port to receive ink. The upper chamber has a passage to receive ink from the lower chamber and an outlet port to dispense ink. The upper chamber is enclosed by a bellow. An actuating member is engaged with the piston assembly. The actuating member is configured to linearly move the piston assembly. The piston assembly is configured to compress and relax the bellow by the linear movement to pump ink from the lower chamber to the upper chamber and from the upper chamber to the outlet port.

  • Publication number: 20190143605
    Abstract: A 3D object is additively formed via arranging non-conductive material relative to a receiving surface. During additive formation of the 3D object, a conductive channel is formed as part of the 3D object. In some instances, non-destructive fracture sensing is performed via measurement of an electrical parameter of the conductive channel.

  • Publication number: 20190149953
    Abstract: In an example implementation, a method of tracking a mobile device includes determining by a tracked device, that a pairing status between the tracked device and a command device has changed from a paired status to an unpaired status. A timer is started on the tracked device in response to determining the unpaired status, and in response to the timer reaching a threshold time, a distress packet is transmitted from the tracked device that indicates the tracked device is lost.

  • Publication number: 20190146737
    Abstract: Web server based color management hosted by a web server is provided enabling a production device to produce a print job with a similar color appearance as a reference device. The web server receives a production device color management profile and a reference device color management profile. The web server creates an output color management profile based on the color management profile of the production device and the color management profile of the reference device. The output color management profile maps device-independent color values associated in the color management profile of the reference device to device-specific color values for colors reproducible by the production device.
