Comparing FDM 3D Printed Parts with Carbon Nanotubes, Continuous Carbon Fiber and Short Carbon Fiber

Comparing FDM 3D Printed Parts with Carbon Nanotubes, Continuous Carbon Fiber and Short Carbon Fiber

Fused deposition modeling, or FDM, 3D printing has several advantages – thermoplastics can be used, which are easy to handle and are strong and durable enough to be used for producing both prototypes and practical parts. Additionally, FDM 3D printers use a simple mechanism to melt and extrude resin that doesn’t need expensive parts, like […]

AFPALM: A New 3D Printing Technology Combines 3D Printing with Automated Fiber Placement

AFPALM: A New 3D Printing Technology Combines 3D Printing with Automated Fiber Placement

Several methods have been developed for the creation of lightweight composite structures. Two of the most commonly used are automated fiber placement (AFP) and automated tape laying (ATL). These two techniques are well-suited for large and/or geometrically complex structures, and their advantages over manual laydown include productivity and reproducibility. These methods hold a lot of […]

colorFabb Presents a Highly Printable Nylon and Carbon Fiber 3D Printing Filament

Nylon is a difficult material to 3D print with, especially for extrusion-based systems. The material tends to warp with maddening frequency, and it’s one of the biggest culprits in regards to absorbing moisture from the air, which causes numerous problems. Its benefits, however, make the material worth trying to overcome its drawbacks. It’s incredibly strong, […]

3DXTech Unleashes New High-Modulus Carbon Fiber PETG 3D Printing Filament

Doesn’t it seem as though it was just several months ago that we were limited to 3D printing objects in just two materials–PLA or ABS? It certainly does to me! Just a couple years ago, FFF/FDM-based desktop 3D printing had appeared to hit a road block, while other technologies like stereolithography (SLA) seemed to be […]
