PostProcess Technologies Closes $4 Million Seed Round as Investors Look to Scalable Industrial 3D Printing

PostProcess Technologies Closes $4 Million Seed Round as Investors Look to Scalable Industrial 3D Printing

It shouldn’t take much convincing for anyone to see how valuable PostProcess’ technology is. Considering the headache involved in removing support materials from 3D printed objects and then smoothing them and making them ready, it’s no surprise that PostProcess Technologies, headquartered in Buffalo, has clients from a wide range of industries today. It’s also not […]

Further Developments Made in Dissolvable Supports for Metal 3D Printed Parts

It’s hard enough to remove supports from many plastic 3D printed parts, but more than one company has been working on developing ways to make plastic support removal easier, to the delight of many. Metal supports are a different story. The laborious machining required to remove metal support structures can take days – often longer than […]

3D Print Smoothing Made Easy with New 3D-CMF Process from Waseda University

I admit that I actually kind of love print lines. I think it’s really neat to be able to see the grooves that indicate where each layer of filament was laid down to create a fully shaped object out of nothing more than plastic string. My 3D printing has mostly been for fun, though; I […]

Innovate UK Awards Consortium £624,000 to Develop Next-Gen Automated Intelligent Post-Processing for 3D Printing

Innovate UK Awards Consortium £624,000 to Develop Next-Gen Automated Intelligent Post-Processing for 3D Printing

As noted by Additive Manufacturing Technologies Ltd (AMT), the post-processing market for 3D printed parts is estimated to grow to £450 million by 2020. We all know that 3D printing technology is shaking up the way objects are manufactured in many fields, and in 2014 the worldwide market for AM services and projects was worth about £3.3 […]

A Four-Step Guide for a Successful 3D Project

A Four-Step Guide for a Successful 3D Project

My first 3D printed project was a little bit disappointing. My new innovation looked rough and weak and the 3D model was not functioning well. Obviously, in 2006 we had fewer options for a 3D printed prototype, but the path was similar to what we have today. Therefore, my first experience was very similar to what I saw over the years with […]

PostProcess Technologies Releases the Hybrid Series Automated 3D Print Post-Processing System

While 3D printing has dramatically sped up the production and manufacturing of prototypes, consumer products and medical implants, that doesn’t mean that there isn’t room for improvement. Most metal or industrial-grade thermoplastic 3D printers produce parts with geometries too complex to be free-standing until the object is complete, so support material is added to keep […]
