Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology in 3D printing has beendeveloped for many years. In this paper, a robot FDM 3D printingsystem is proposed and the nozzle temperature control issue isfocused primarily. The temperature measurement adopts a data driven modeling method andthe parameters of the measurement model are trained by the particle swarm optimization algorithm. A practical temperature control method is presented in which thetemperature control of nozzle is divided into two periods. Duringthe temperature flying period, the heating voltage is givenaccording to the current temperature value and its varying trend. In thefalling time of nozzle temperature, the corresponding controlvoltage value is provided correspondingly. Based on this practical control strategy, a partdesigned with Solidworks software is printed using the robot FDM printing system which validates theeffectiveness of the practical temperature control method.
