    3D Printing Beds: An Overview of How They Work0

    3D printing has become an increasingly popular solution for manufacturing-related processes, some of which include prototyping, production and the creation of proof-of-concept models. Using a 3D printer, manufacturing companies can build objects from a digitally created model. The object model is created using computer-aided design (CAD) software, after which the CAD file is uploaded or

  • What Is a Countersunk Screw?

    What Is a Countersunk Screw?0

    Featuring exterior helical ridges, screws are among the world’s most commonly used fasteners. The exterior ridges, or threading, allow screws to remove material from the object or surface in which they are inserted. As you drive a screw into a wall, for example, some of the excess material will ride up along the ridges to

  • Retraction: How It Works in 3D Printing

    Retraction: How It Works in 3D Printing0

    It’s not uncommon for 3D printers to drip or leak filament. In fused deposition modeling (FDM) — the most common type of 3D printing — the nozzle at the end of the 3D printer’s head will release filament to build the desired object. The nozzle is typically heated, thereby lowering the viscosity of the filament.

  • Pros and Cons of Lost-Foam Casting

    Pros and Cons of Lost-Foam Casting0

    Not to be confused with investment casting, lost-foam casting is a molding process used to create objects or “castings” from a mold. It involves the use of a polystyrene pellets, which are inserted into the mold cavity. Molten metal is then poured into the mold cavity, which causes the polystyrene pellets to expand. As the

  • A Crash Course on Rapid Prototyping in Manufacturing

    A Crash Course on Rapid Prototyping in Manufacturing0

    Manufacturing companies often use computer-aided design (CAD) files to design, as well as fabricate, products and components. After designing a model and saving it as a CAD file, a worker will upload it to a 3D printer. The 3D printer will then build the product or component using raw material. Rapid prototyping is one such
