How to Give Your 3D Printed FDM Part the Smoothness of Injection Molding

3 3 Intermediate
This tutorial will demonstrate how you can give your FDM printed part the finishing smoothness of injection molding. The Finishing Touch Smoothing Station can dramatically improve the surface finish of ABS parts that are built using FDM technology. The semi-automated smoothing process is compatible with FDM’s entire line of ABS plastics. The following is brought to you by Stratasys.

How to Orient Parts for Strenth, Speed or Surface Finish

2 0 Intermediate
Build optimization is dependent on a part’s function (conceptual model, functional prototype, manufacturing tool or end-use part). Based on the part’s function, the user must select the appropriate orientation to balance or optimize surface finish, strength, or build time of the part. By following these best practices, you can cut down on time and waste.

How to go From 3D Scanning to 3D Printing

2 0 Intermediate
A 3D scanner is a device that analyzes and captures the geometry and colors of physical objects to transform them into digital 3D models. The scanning process collects sample points from the object’s surface and generates its geometric shape through extrapolation. There are many different 3D scanning technologies and each one comes with its own advantages, limitations and cost. Stratasys tested two types of Creaform 3D scanners: the HandyScan 700 and the Go!SCAN 20. These portable 3D scanners can be used for a wide range of applications, offering a simple and intuitive scanning experience, providing fast and reliable results. The Go!Scan 20 scanner can capture 3D data in color. It provides a very fast measurement rate and requires minimal data post-processing. The HandySCAN 700 is used mainly for taking measurements and reverse engineering. This scanner is fast at delivering accurate and high resolution 3D scans while remaining simple to use. All phases of product design, from concept through manufacturing, can benefit from the workflow combination of 3D scanning and printing. This process can reduce the number of design iterations and the time between each, lowering the total cost of each prototype. The following is brought to you by Stratasys:

Printing printing and only researching more in 3D printing. I made another one live, My cool case model which i donated to world as free. The AP team were similar to Nokia team and they are telling them as the EXPERT designer?? Ha ha ha. Live them there, and about me is to do the best like always. They are not a competitor, just a obstacle.
