There are several different 3D printing technologies and each has their advantages and disadvantages. Because each technology are appropriate for different use cases, the primary 3D printing technologies and their ideal uses are not widely understood. Whether your goals are around surface finish, speed, functional parts, or implementation costs, one technology could make more sense than the other.
This webinar covers topics including:
- A brief history of the primary 3D printing technologies – FDM, SLA, and SLS
- Suggested usage scenarios for each process
- Design guidelines to make the most of each technology
- Example use cases and applications
