  • Patent number: 9757965
    Abstract: In some examples, printing device performance analysis may include actuating a motor to operate a first separation tire of a printing device in a first rotary direction. The first separation tire may be operable adjacent to a second separation tire rotatable in a second rotary direction that is opposite to the first rotary direction to separate physical media. Printing device performance analysis may further include actuating the motor to operate the first separation tire in the second rotary direction, and determining whether a motor torque difference of the motor between the first and second rotary directions is greater than a predetermined threshold.

  • Publication number: 20170252974
    Abstract: In an example of a three-dimensional (3D) printing method, a build material (consisting of an inorganic particle and a polymer attached thereto) is applied. The polymer is a continuous coating having a thickness from about 3 nm to about 1500 nm, or nano-beads having an average diameter from about 3 nm to about 1500 nm. The build material is heated to a temperature from about 5° C. to about 50° C. below the polymer's melting point. A coalescent dispersion (including a coalescent agent and inorganic nanoparticles) is selectively applied on a portion of the build material, and the applied build material and coalescent dispersion are exposed to electromagnetic radiation. The coalescent dispersion absorbs the electromagnetic radiation and heats up the portion of the build material in contact therewith to fuse the portion of the build material in contact with the coalescent dispersion and to form a layer of a 3D object.

  • Publication number: 20170252979
    Abstract: A method of diffusing an error in three-dimensional contone model data includes generating halftone data for a slice among a number of slices of the three-dimensional contone model data, generating compensatory error values based on the generated halftone data, and adding the generated compensatory error values to contone data for a successive slice.
