    3D Printing Speed: How It Affects Build Time

    • May 1, 2020

    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

    What Is Permanent Mold Casting?

    • April 30, 2020

    Molding processes are used to create objects with the assistance of a die. The material — which is typically heated or molten — is poured or otherwise injected into the cavity of a die. As the material fills the surrounding space, it creates a casting in the same shape as the die. Not all molding

    The Role ‘Slicing’ Plays in 3D Printing

    • April 29, 2020

    When researching 3D printing processes, you’ll probably encounter slicing. There are many different forms of 3D printing, some of which use powder material to build objects, whereas others use liquid material to build objects. Regardless, nearly all of them require slicing. Slicing is an essential step in the 3D printing process that’s used to create

    What Is Selective Laser Sintering?

    • April 24, 2020

    When researching the different forms of 3D printing, you’ll probably come across selective laser sintering. A form of additive manufacturing, it uses a laser to “sinter” powder particles. In other words, the material used in laser sintering is fused together with the help of a laser. While laser sintering may sound highly technical, it’s actually

    How Plasma Spraying Works

    • April 24, 2020

    To protect against rust and corrosion, workpieces are often coated in a protective material. Thermal spraying, for instance, is a group of processes that involves the application of heated or melted material onto the surface of a workpiece. Once covered in the protective material, the underlying workpiece is protected from rust, corrosion and even physical

    What Is Binder Jet 3D Printing?

    • April 23, 2020

    With origins dating back to the mid-1990s, binder jet is one of the oldest forms of 3D printing. It’s able to produce a variety of custom-shaped and custom-sized objects by “printing” them. From small toys to complex manufacturing components, binder 3D printing supports a myriad of objects. So, what is binder jet 3D printing exactly?
