What Do We Need for Production Scale 3D Printing? Amateur Hour is Over.

What Do We Need for Production Scale 3D Printing? Amateur Hour is Over.

Whereas most of the media focus around 3D printing was initially directed at desktop 3D printing, a lot of the opportunity is actually in industry. Industrial 3D printing can unlock value for manufacturers by making their supply chains more flexible. Part count reduction and weight reduction in parts can lower costs. By using 3D printing […]

Olaf Diegel's Desktop Distillery Proves Metal 3D Printing is More Fun without Post-Processing

Post-processing. No one wants to talk about it, but everyone working with metal additive manufacturing has to do it. …Right? While Rize is working to remove the pain of post-processing from plastic 3D printing processes, and Desktop Metal has been making headway with easily removable supports on the metals side, as of today there’s no […]

3D Printing with Essentially No Post-Processing: Rize Rises at RAPID, Sees Future in Growth with New Company President

It’s okay to admit it: you hate post-processing. It’s easier once you’ve admitted it. It’s easier still if you can virtually eliminate the need for it — or at least that’s one foundational belief at Rize, which emerged from the ether last summer to present the Rize One 3D printer, said to essentially cut out the […]

PostProcess Technologies Closes $4 Million Seed Round as Investors Look to Scalable Industrial 3D Printing

It shouldn’t take much convincing for anyone to see how valuable PostProcess’ technology is. Considering the headache involved in removing support materials from 3D printed objects and then smoothing them and making them ready, it’s no surprise that PostProcess Technologies, headquartered in Buffalo, has clients from a wide range of industries today. It’s also not […]

Further Developments Made in Dissolvable Supports for Metal 3D Printed Parts

It’s hard enough to remove supports from many plastic 3D printed parts, but more than one company has been working on developing ways to make plastic support removal easier, to the delight of many. Metal supports are a different story. The laborious machining required to remove metal support structures can take days – often longer than […]

Omegasonics Makes 3D Print Post-Processing Fast and Easy with Ultrasonic Technology

There’s one aspect of 3D printing technology that is consistently glossed over by many, and that is post-processing. Even as more and more people become familiar with 3D printing, there’s still a startling number of people who believe that it’s a push-button technology: you push a button, wait a while, and voila! You’ve got a […]

3D Print Smoothing Made Easy with New 3D-CMF Process from Waseda University

I admit that I actually kind of love print lines. I think it’s really neat to be able to see the grooves that indicate where each layer of filament was laid down to create a fully shaped object out of nothing more than plastic string. My 3D printing has mostly been for fun, though; I […]

A Four-Step Guide for a Successful 3D Project

A Four-Step Guide for a Successful 3D Project

My first 3D printed project was a little bit disappointing. My new innovation looked rough and weak and the 3D model was not functioning well. Obviously, in 2006 we had fewer options for a 3D printed prototype, but the path was similar to what we have today. Therefore, my first experience was very similar to what I saw over the years with […]

Artists and Makers Say Goodbye to Sanding & Hello to Glossy 3D Prints with PolySmooth & Polysher

When we look at works of art, it’s rare that we consider how many hours—often challenging and painstaking ones—went into making something so exclusive. We are drawn to authentic, handcrafted pieces that someone with a unique talent has poured their creativity into because they we know they were thoughtfully and carefully considered from beginning to […]
