  • Powder Bed Fusion: An Innovative Form of 3D Printing

    Powder Bed Fusion: An Innovative Form of 3D Printing0

    3D printing is a manufacturing process that involves the use of a machine, known as a 3D printer, to build an object from a computer-designed model. The object is designed in a computer program, after which the model file is uploaded or transferred to the 3D printer. While most 3D printing processes build objects by

    5 Fun Facts About Rapid Prototyping0

    Manufacturers often use 3D printers to build prototypes of new products from a computer-aided design (CAD) file. Known as rapid prototyping, it’s become an increasingly popular alternative to traditional prototyping methods in recent years. As its name suggests, rapid prototyping emphasizes speed to allow for blazing-fast production times. Here are fun facts about rapid prototyping

    What Is Robocasting in 3D Printing?0

    From simple toys to complex automotive components, 3D printing is used to create a diverse range of products. It’s called “3D printing” because it builds three-dimensional objects by printing them. Rather than ink, of course, 3D printers use raw material. Robocasting is a unique form of 3D printing, however, that’s commonly used in the manufacturing

  • Selective Heat Sintering vs Laser Melting in 3D Printing

    Selective Heat Sintering vs Laser Melting in 3D Printing0

    Selective heat sintering (SHS) and selective laser melting (SLM) are two common types of 3D printing used in the manufacturing industry. While not as popular as fused deposition modeling (FDM), they offer many advantages for commercial applications. With SHS and SLM, the raw material isn’t deposited. Rather, the raw material is “selectively” joined via heat.

    An Introduction to Laminated Object Manufacturing (LOM)0

    Laminated object manufacturing (LOM) is frequently performed for rapid prototyping in the manufacturing industry. Manufacturing companies use it to quickly build prototypes of products from an object model. The object model is designed in a computer program, after which it’s converted into a tangible product prototype. LOM is distinguished from other rapid prototyping processes, however,

    What Causes Layer Shifting in 3D Printing?0

    3D printing is a manufacturing process that leverages the use of a machine, known as a 3D printer, to build an object layer by layer. The object model is first designed using computer-aided design (CAD) software, after which it’s uploaded or transferred to the 3D printer. The 3D printer will then build the object from
