AM at Jabil: From 3D Printing Materials to Distributed Manufacturing

One of the largest manufacturers in the world has made a significant investment in 3D printing — both as a user and an advancer of this technology. Our original reporting dives into the what and why of additive manufacturing at Jabil.

Production

8 Times 3D Printing Built a Better Bracket

Brackets may not be the most exciting application for 3D printing, but they are one of the most important. Here are 8 instances where a 3D printed bracket offered advantages over a conventionally produced one.

Video: Topology Optimization versus Generative Design

Why do these strategies matter in design for additive manufacturing (DFAM), and what’s the difference? A conversation with PADT’s Eric Miller explores AM and design, including its human element.

Inspection

CT Scanning Reveals What Isn’t There in 3D Printed Parts

3D Engineering Solutions offers CT scanning as a powerful nondestructive testing (NDT) solution for inspection. For 3D printed parts, sometimes revealing the space inside can be just as valuable as mapping what was printed.
