Thermwood Introduces New Universal Print Head for LSAM 3D Printer

Thermwood Introduces New Universal Print Head for LSAM 3D Printer

3D printing, particularly FDM 3D printing, involves a lot of heat. Heated print head, heated build chamber, heated build platform – it’s all necessary to melt plastic filament and ensure that it stays soft enough to adhere to the build plate and to each subsequent layer before hardening. But Thermwood Corporation, which introduced the Large […]

Before additive manufacturing, there was subtractive manufacturing, which, like its name suggests, is the process of “subtracting” or cutting away material from a solid amount to create a new object. While it’s the opposite of additive manufacturing, which adds material layer by layer to build an object, one hasn’t replaced the other, and, in fact, they often go hand […]
