On the journey from product idea to production, when does the “mold moment” come? That is, the moment of needing to invest in tooling and make design commitments. 3D printing can delay this step on the journey or even avoid it altogether.
Three separate software tools from Siemens attempt to control some of the most challenging variables within metal AM: build orientation, distortion and deposition paths. Part of software video series.
The online store utilizes open capacity at its sister 3D printer farms for on-demand production with no startup costs, allowing designers to sell physical products as easily as digital ones.
Speed Is Relative in AM: A Data-Driven Comparison of Multi-Laser Powder Bed Fusion and Binder Jet Processing
There is a difference between the effective print speed and the actual cost to produce the component with AM. John Barnes compares binder jet processing with powder bed fusion for metal parts.
The San Francisco startup is changing designer lighting with a designer-forward online marketplace and just-in-time delivery enabled by 3D printing.
A medical device maker establishes a center of excellence for product and process development in which additive manufacturing and CNC machining both challenge and complement one another.
