How Close Are We to Full Color 3D Printing?

How Close Are We to Full Color 3D Printing?

Full color 3D printing is the holy grail of 3D printing. To be able to 3D print an object in any color whatsoever with clear definition and no bleed would really make prototyping with 3D printing more valuable. If prototypes coming off the printer would look almost exactly like the final object, then the technology […]

Investment Casting and 3D Printing: BFFs

Investment Casting and 3D Printing: BFFs

Investment casting has been used for millennia. In this process a wax pattern is made. This is hardened, then the wax is vaporized. The resulting mold is then hardened once again and surrounded by sand. The ceramic shell that emerges from this process is then filled with molten metal before being broken away. Investment casting […]
