  • What Is a 3D Printing Marketplace?

    What Is a 3D Printing Marketplace?0

    Have you heard of 3D printing marketplaces? In recent years, they’ve become a popular destination for consumers and businesses in search of 3D printing files. Rather than exhausting countless works designing objects from the ground up, many consumers and businesses will buy predesigned object model files from a web-based platform. Known as a 3D printing

    An Introduction to Directed Energy Deposition (DED) 3D Printing0

    Some 3D printing processes are more complex than others. While fused filament fabrication (FFF) is a relatively simple process, the opposite can be said for directed energy deposition (DED). When compared to FFF, as well as many other 3D printing processes, DED is considered highly complex. It still involves building objects layer by layer, but

  • Rods vs Slurries vs Pellets in 3D Printing

    Rods vs Slurries vs Pellets in 3D Printing0

    Fused filament fabrication (FFF) printers are designed to build objects by depositing material onto a print bed. They don’t deposit all the material at once. Rather, they deposit material layer by layer. FFF printers, however, may use one of three types of materials: rods, slurries or pellets. The material itself usually consists of plastic or

    5 Facts About STL Files0

    Stereolithic (STL) files have become synonymous with 3D printing. Also known as “Standard Triangle Language,” this otherwise common file format is used in countless 3D printing applications. Both consumers and businesses alike use it to design objects for 3D printing. Even if you’re familiar with the term, though, there are probably some things about STL

    Infill vs Shell in 3D Printing: What’s the Difference?0

    When researching 3D printing, you’ll probably encounter some otherwise confusing terms, including infill and shell. 3D printing is a complex manufacturing technique. Although there are a variety of 3D printing processes, they all involve building three-dimensional objects from a computer-generated file. Infill and shell are two key components of 3D printing processes. They provide the

    The 3 Stages of 3D Printing and How They Work0

    3D printing is a form of additive manufacturing that involves the use of a machine, known as a 3D printer, to build objects using raw material. 3D printers contain a nozzle through which raw material is extruded. The extruded material is released onto a print bed layer by layer, allowing for the construction of an
