Decrease Print Time: Designing

The most common issue with Additive Manufacturing is the printing time compared to subtractive manufacturing (rapid machining).  While AM saves time in the long run (especially in situations where specialized prototyping or significant machining time are required), subtractive manufacturing has been known to be faster in some situations with proper resources.  There are several strategies that users can put in place to improve their print time without altering the print quality. In this post, we will go over what adds [...]

Increase Capabilities

Increase Possibilities with 3D Printing Industries using 3D printing have experienced cost effective benefits, solutions and quality functional parts. Ocean Alliance + Olin College of Engineering By using 3D technologies, Ocean Alliance and Olin College of Engineering teamed up to create a lightweight, durable drone to observe whales and collect samples. However, of the various drones they built, none compared to the carbon fiber 3D printed technology. With the Mark Two they were able to print carbon fiber parts at $34.79 (material) [...]
