Reducing High Porosity and Improving Sealing Properties in Extrusion-Based 3D Printing

Reducing High Porosity and Improving Sealing Properties in Extrusion-Based 3D Printing

While there’s been a lot of ongoing research into what causes structural defects (porosity) and other flaws in metal 3D printed parts, let’s not forget that 3D printed objects made with other kinds of materials can also suffer from issues. A small team of researchers from the Russian Academy of Sciences’ N.D. Zelinsky Institute of Organic […]

MIT and Binghamton Researchers Find Possible Way to Make FDM 3D Printer Speeds Faster

MIT and Binghamton Researchers Find Possible Way to Make FDM 3D Printer Speeds Faster

One of the most frustrating parts of 3D printing – other than failed prints – is print speed, or lack thereof. 3D printers are getting progressively faster, but overall, they’re still slower than most people would consider ideal, especially when it comes to large prints. I, personally, have never really paused to consider the mechanics […]
