When preparing to 3D print your design, a key step is to ensure that it has as few problems, such as unintended holes or missed data, as possible. Not all CAD programs offer tools to aid you with this step, but that is beginning to … [Read more...] about SpaceClaim makes it easier to prepare your design for 3D printing
What do you think will be the top developments in 3D printing in 2013? Tuan Tranpham, North American Channel Manager, Stratasys Ltd., recently posted some of his predictions. I agree with many of them. Consumer 3D printers probably have … [Read more...] about 10 predictions for 3D printing
The processes involved in Additive manufacturing (AM), including 3D printing, stereolithography, polyjet, and fused filament fabrication, all promise design freedom. This technology has not replaced traditional manufacturing yet. So, many parts will … [Read more...] about If you draw it, will it “print”?
I’ve been involved in a discussion on a LinkedIn group about the need to more clearly note when a design is suitable for one of the 3D additive manufacturing/rapid prototyping (AM/RP) process. Some of the comments indicate that more training is … [Read more...] about New: Design Guide for SLS systems
