Fontys University Students Experiment with Filament Extrusion and 3D Printing

Fontys University Students Experiment with Filament Extrusion and 3D Printing

One of the most promising aspects of 3D printing is the fact that additive manufacturing adds material and only uses what is necessary through building structures up (albeit with any required supports), whereas through traditional subtractive methodologies, greater amounts of raw materials are required in order to cut away what is required. While the sheer […]
