3D printing technology is used to print 3D models with very different geometries. For being able to print parts within
parts quality metrics, it is necessary to use an accurate & repeatable thermo‐camera sensor. To calibrate and
characterize this sensor is used an equipment named Blackbody, which represents an ideal reference source, with
uniform temperature at many defined setpoints and known emissivity coefficient. This equipment is expensive and
has limitations which makes impossible to integrate them in the printer.
