Americas president Rich Garrity describes how the two additive manufacturing technology companies came together (COVID-19 helped), along with the value of protecting one culture while allowing another to change.
Identifying the right part to begin your AM path can demonstrate and validate the AM workflow, provide a benchmark for future work and more.
Professor of additive manufacturing Tim Simpson joins me to talk about 3D printing fails and what they teach. Follow #AMWTF on LinkedIn, where we will debut each new failed build ahead of every episode.

Surface finish for 3D printed mold tooling has a direct effect on the pull-out force needed to remove the final part. Why molders should consider tool roughness along with geometry and materials.

3D printed polymer-derived ceramics (PDCs) could find wider application through a process developed at the University of Texas at Dallas that extrudes preceramic material in a self-healing bath for support through printing and curing.
The startup’s cloud-based artificial intelligence tool is designed to help companies adopting additive manufacturing make fast, easy decisions about what and how to 3D print.
