Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) Design Guidelines

23 0 Beginner
This tutorial is designed to give you a foundation of what to consider when designing and printing a part for Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). FDM is an additive manufacturing technology that extrudes thin layers of thermoplastic layer by layer until a part is completed. FDM produces robust production parts in engineer-grade thermoplastic, with the added benefits of speed and design freedom possible with 3D printing. The cutting-edge technology is utilized across industries like aerospace, energy and transportation for production components.

Finishing Options for FDM and PolyJet 3D Printed Parts

22 1 Beginner
Finishing or secondary operations encompasses a broad range of processes that change a manufactured part’s properties. Engineers can employ finishing simply to improve part’s appearance and reshape it to meet certain dimensions, or use it to enhance functionality, such as increasing strength, chemical resistance, electrical conductivity and more. Secondary operations basically turn raw parts into finished goods and this isn’t limited to traditional manufactured parts. 3D printed parts can also be enhanced with secondary operations, but much like designing for additive manufacturing, different processes and best practices apply. Throughout the product design and manufacturing process, engineers should also be thinking about how 3D printed parts can be finished. Determining the appropriate finishing operations depends on the additive process, material and geometry as well as the desired aesthetics and functionality. This guide explains the primary finishing operations additive manufacturing service providers implement for FDM and PolyJet 3D printing technologies, grouped by possible finishing objectives, and compatible materials and applicable design considerations.

If not done right, metal that is inserted in FDM parts can look sloppy and unprofessional. With a few easy steps, a metal part can be inserted seamlessly and damage-free.

PolyJet Materials and Uses: Tips and Tricks

12 4 Intermediate
Materials are critical to prototyping and production success. At the heart of any great application is the right material: one that performs as needed under the application’s conditions. This is just as true for 3D printing as it has always been for molding, machining, and casting. While the 3D printing industry has a wide variety of materials to choose from, ranging from plastic to metal and wax to paper, the selection is often quite limited for a given technology. It is even more restricted for specific 3D printers, with one exception.

How to Solvent Smooth 3D Printed FDM Parts

12 1 Beginner
The normal surface finish of FDM parts is suitable for most purposes, but in applications where a smoother surface is required, solvent smoothing is an alternative to sanding, filling, and mass finishing.

How to Print Remotely on the Stratasys F123 Series Using Wait For Part Mode

9 7 Beginner
The new Stratasys® F123™ Series can print industrial-grade, reliable concept models, functional prototypes, jigs, and fixtures. In applications such as these, printer operators will often want to print parts quickly, remotely, and on-demand. That is why this series has a Wait for Part Mode, letting you send files straight to the printer to start building immediately, without needing to select the job manually from the Queue. This tutorial will explain how to use this mode.
