    How Object Models Are Designed for 3D Printing

    • April 22, 2020

    Modeling is an essential step in 3D printing. Before a 3D printer can build an object — a process that typically occurs layer by layer — a digital model of the respective object must be designed. Only after the model has been designed can the 3D printer begin to build the object. If you’re new

    Raft vs Brim in 3D Printing: What’s the Difference?

    • April 17, 2020

    3D printing applications often involve the use of either a raft or brim. Both components serve as a substrate on which the respective object or built. Using a 3D printer, manufacturing companies can build custom-shaped objects layer by later by depositing the material onto a raft or brim. Rafts and brims aren’t the same, however.
