Interviews with 3D Printing Experts

Video: Survey of AM Users Finds Machine Shops Employing 3D Printing for Plastic Part Production

Additive manufacturing provides an option for low-quantity production in polymer. One implication is that machine shops are liable to be less strictly metalworking businesses.

Video: Periscope Case Shows 3D Printing for Niche Manufacturing

Manufacturing without mold tooling allows the production quantity to be tailored to the market size.

Video: Additive Manufacturing Offers a Tooling Alternative

3D printing can offer a cost-effective alternative to conventionally produced tooling for those processes that depend on it.

Cool Stuff We Discovered at Rapid + TCT 2019 (See Our Video Collection)

AI for process improvement, 3D printing with metal paste, droids for build change—here are six innovations we wanted to share with you straight from the show floor.

Video: 3D-Printed Brackets Are Key to Automated Coolant Delivery for Lights-Out Machining

An on-site look at the different elements of the coolant-delivery system developed by a machine shop committed to running unattended.

Video: Additive Manufacturing Will Change How We Design

Geometric freedom is just the start. AM will also change how design happens.

Video: In Conventional Manufacturing, 3D Printing Is a Solution for Tooling

Tooling for conventional operations doesn't have to made conventionally. Rather than being made through machining, these welding fixtures are now made via 3D printing.

Video: This Custom Part Illustrates the Promise of Polymer 3D Printing

A low-quantity plastic part used instead of metal components saved weight for a motorcycle. The application illustrates the expanding opportunities for polymer manufacturing.

Video: HP on Additive Manufacturing for Production

HP’s Timothy Weber discusses VW’s plans for making metal parts via AM and the way forward to implementing additive as a production process.

Video: What is Selective Laser Sintering?

SLS is a powder-bed process for building polymer parts. How does it work and what can it do? AM talks SLS with Farsoon.

Video: Selective Laser Sintering for Production of Large Parts

SLS offers a production option enabling large, precise plastic parts to be made cost-effectively in quantities generally too low for injection molding.
