Olaf Diegel's Desktop Distillery Proves Metal 3D Printing is More Fun without Post-Processing

Post-processing. No one wants to talk about it, but everyone working with metal additive manufacturing has to do it. …Right? While Rize is working to remove the pain of post-processing from plastic 3D printing processes, and Desktop Metal has been making headway with easily removable supports on the metals side, as of today there’s no […]

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 […]

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 […]
