Advances in 3D printing materials are making it possible to 3D print jigs and fixtures that can withstand the rigors of manufacturing to reduce costs, shorten development time and create more efficient production workflows from design engineer to manufacturing floor technician, according to 3D printer manufacturer Formlabs.

In a free webinar taking place Tuesday, May 22, 2018, at 2 p.m. ET, the company will address how companies can leverage low-cost, high-resolution desktop 3D printers and advanced 3D printing materials to produce jigs and fixtures in-house, shortening supply chains, and bringing innovation closer to the production floor. The webinar is presented by Andrew Edman, applications engineer at Formlabs.

  • The Aircraft Imperative

    Reduce cost, reduce weight—to the extent that additive manufacturing can do these things, it represents a promising method for making aircraft parts. While important constraints currently prevent additive manufacturing from seeing more widespread use in aircraft production, these constraints might not be what you think. Here is a look at additive manufacturing within Boeing.

  • 3D-Printed Tooling Offers Durability for Precast Concrete

    As an alternative to wooden tooling, 3D-printed forms for precast concrete are proving to be more durable and better able to support a large-scale renovation project. 

  • 3D Printing’s Expanding Role

    By providing solid prototypes of proposed part designs, one company has saved enough money in avoided rework to pay for its new 3D printer several times over.
