3D Printing and CNC Machining Complement Each Other in the Ooznest OX

3D Printing and CNC Machining Complement Each Other in the Ooznest OX

While CNC machining and 3D printing may seem to be the opposite of each other – one removes material, the other adds material – the two technologies complement each other well, as the growing number of CNC mill/3D printer hybrid machines demonstrates. In fact, one might even say that the two technologies make each other. […]

3D Printed Spot Welder Increases Prototyping Capabilities

3D Printed Spot Welder Increases Prototyping Capabilities

Spot welding is a process by which two pieces of metal are joined together in a permanent manner at a number of points (aka ‘spots’). This is done when an electrical current is passed through the point at which the weld is desired and the resistance creates heat, thereby melting the two points together. Frankly, […]
