  • How Extrusion Works in Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF)

    How Extrusion Works in Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF)0

    Extrusion is a core component of fused filament fabrication (FFF). During this 3D printing process, a printer will extrude raw material to build the desired object. Most FFF printers use rods or filaments of material. As the material is extruded out of the printer, it’s deposited onto or into the object. To learn more about

    CO2 vs Nd Laser Cutting: What’s the Difference?0

    Not all cutting processes involve the use of a physical cutting tool. While lathes and milling machines do, in fact, use a physical cutting tool, laser machines do not. Laser cutting is a cutting process in which a machine projects a focused beam of light onto a workpiece to selectively cut in the workpiece in

    Rotocasting vs Rotational Molding: What’s the Difference?0

    Molding processes are used in the manufacturing industry to create products and components by filling a mold cavity with material. The material is typically heated, and as it fills the mold cavity, it takes the shape of the mold. Once cooled, the casting can be removed from the mold cavity. There are many different types

  • What Causes Stringing in 3D Printing?

    What Causes Stringing in 3D Printing?0

    3D printing methods, including fused filament fabrication (FFF), offer an easy and effective way for manufacturing companies to produce objects in custom sizes and custom shapes. Using a 3D printer, manufacturing companies can build objects using a digitally created model of the respective object. With that said, some manufacturing companies may encounter stringing when performing

    5 Common Myths About 3D Printing0

    The advent of 3D printers has revolutionized the manufacturing industry. A form of additive manufacturing, it allows manufacturing companies to quickly build objects of nearly all shapes and sizes with the help of a material-depositing machine known as a 3D printer. While you’ve probably heard of 3D printing before, you can’t believe everything you read

  • 3D Printing Speed: How It Affects Build Time

    3D Printing Speed: How It Affects Build Time0

    3D printers typically build objects at different rates of speed, depending primarily on the speed for which they are configured. Some 3D printers are able to build objects more quickly than others, which can prove invaluable for manufacturing companies. The good news is that most 3D printers allow users to control the printing speed. For
