3D Printing is one of the most exciting hobbies for people who love to make things, as it’s a beautiful culmination of almost all of the different fields of engineering, from electrical to mechanical and even chemical engineering as well. And despite how complex most 3D Printers seem to be from an outside perspective, once you go into the inner workings it gets a lot more complicated, with these TL-Smoother Plus Stepper Filter Modules being an excellent example of just how complex it can get.

Compared to the other TL-Smoother Plus Modules that we stock, these particular models are supplied by Trianglelab, who are awesome manufacturers that focus on quality and the end-user experience. As such, these TL Smoother Plus Modules have been equipped with higher quality Vishay Semiconductor S3M Freewheeling Diodes. This translates to more reliability with tighter tolerances, resulting in a longer lifespan, as well as more time enjoying smoothened, noise-free prints and beautiful surface finishes.

These simple but very cleverly-designed modules are built with diodes that help to filter out induction voltages and feedback so as to smoothen the electrical signal waves for smoother acceleration, movement and stopping times. In 3D Printing, this can make a big difference in the quality of prints produced, as it ensures the Stepper Drivers and motors always deliver the exact electrical signals, and in turn mechanical movements, that you’re expecting – resulting in prints that look and feel great without any signs of motor jerking or the common “Salmon Skin” problem.

Please Note: If you are currently using Trinamic Drivers with SpreadCycle, or are considering upgrading to such drivers, then these TL-Smoothers may not offer the big benefit you're expecting. This is because Trinamic's patented SpreadCycle performs a very similar (albeit more efficient) smoothing/filtering process, with extra features like stealthChop that also assist in this regard.

Although the term “clone” has become somewhat synonymous with “low quality” within the industry of hobbyist 3D Printing, Trianglelab is company that rises above this notion, as they are dedicated to producing clones that are more than just carbon-copies, but actually equal to or sometimes even better than the original designs. This focus on genuine quality has garnered Trianglelab worldwide attention as the “Go-To-Chinese-Suppliers” for clones of some of the best 3D Printing Parts in the world, which includes parts from leading brands like E3D, BMG, Capricorn and even ANTCLABS.

As some of you awesome Makers will know, we often test out clones and copies of popular products to see if they are worth stocking for customers, but more often than not we are unhappy with the results, and this is why we typically only have a small collection of clones that managed to pass our stringent quality tests. With Trianglelab, however, we have been very impressed with the quality of the “clones” that they produce, and after testing a good range of different products from them, we are pleased with the great quality and careful consideration towards the end user experience that goes into each product they make. Rest assured though, that we will still thoroughly test each and every item we get from Trianglelab, as we are still dedicated to ensuring only excellent quality products wherever and whenever possible, meaning that you can rely on the quality of Trianglelab 3D Printing Parts, Spares and Supplies.
