  • What Is the 3D Manufacturing Format?

    What Is the 3D Manufacturing Format?0

    3D printers rely on files to build objects using raw material. There are many different types of 3D printers, including fused filament fabrication (FFF), selective laser melting, selective laser sintering and electron beam melting. Regardless of the type, though, they are all guided via a model file. These files can’t use just any format. Rather,

  • FFF 3D Printers: 5 Things You Need to Know

    FFF 3D Printers: 5 Things You Need to Know0

    Fused filament fabrication (FFF) has become synonymous with 3D printing. There are FFF 3D printers that, like other 3D printers, build objects from raw material. Available in consumer- and commercial-grade models, they are the single most popular type of 3D printers. FFF 3D printers offer an effective building solution for nearly all types of objects,

  • Additive Manufacturing vs Subtractive Manufacturing

    Additive Manufacturing vs Subtractive Manufacturing0

    Manufacturing processes can often be classified as either additive or subtractive. In both types of processes, companies build objects from materials. Materials can include plastics, thermoplastics, iron, steel, carbon and more. While both additive and subtractive manufacturing processes are used to build objects from materials, though, they aren’t the same. So, what’s the difference between

  • What Is a ‘Road’ In 3D Printing?

    What Is a ‘Road’ In 3D Printing?0

    3D printing is a complex manufacturing process that uses a machine, known as a 3D printer, to build three-dimensional objects from raw material. 3D printers take the raw material and deposit it onto a print bed, slowly building the object layer by layer. When researching 3D printers, however, you’ll encounter some otherwise confusing terms, one

  • Why 3D Printing Is on the Rise

    Why 3D Printing Is on the Rise0

    There’s no denying the fact that 3D printing is on the rise. Research shows that global sales for 3D printers have increased by approximately 80% over the past few years. This isn’t expected to change anytime soon, either. On the contrary, both businesses and consumers will continue to buy 3D printers at an ever-increasing rate.

  • How 3D Printers Build Metal Objects

    How 3D Printers Build Metal Objects0

    3D printers aren’t restricted to the use of plastics or thermoplastics. While most fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printers do, in fact, build objects using these materials, others are capable of building objects with raw metal. Being that metal is obviously harder and stronger than plastic, you might be wondering how they work. After all,
