How to 3D Print in Full Color (Part 2)

15 3 Intermediate
This is the second in a series of tutorials to help printer operators who are NOT graphic artists get the absolute most out of their multi-color, multi-material 3D printers, like the Stratasys J750. We will cover how to look deeper inside our VRML files to predict if they will import correctly and how to choose the resolution of VRML files from Rhino and other artistic CAD programs to make sure they are capturing the information you want.

How to Get the Most Out of 3D Metal Printing

12 0 Intermediate
The impact of metal 3D printing on the manufacturing landscape has become significantly more measurable within the last decade. Material developments and concentrated research into producing fully dense additive metal parts has led to recent widespread adoption of the technology for end-use production. This tutorial will cover metal 3D printing design constraints and freedoms, available metal materials, quality and process controls, surface finishes, and heat treatment methods that truly empower metals to overcome conventional manufacturing challenges and deliver incredible parts impossible to achieve through other production means.

Inserting Hardware Post-Build

0 0 Intermediate
Various types of hardware are commonly used in plastic parts to withstand the torque and load applied when joining parts to create assemblies. Like machined or molded plastics parts, components made with FDM technology can also have hardware inserted into them. Inserts may be added during an FDM build or in a secondary, post-build operation. This Best Practice covers secondary insertion of hardware with common methods such as adhesive bonding, pressing, and heat setting.
