While some may argue that conventional manufacturing technologies have their benefits, various industries have witnessed the growth in their production rate with the application of advanced manufacturing techniques like Additive Manufacturing (3D Printing). One such example is the implementation of 3D Printing in the construction industry. As surprising as it may… Continue reading

Multijet Printing vs Polyjet technology: Are they similar?

With the gain in the popularity of 3D Printing technology, be it for domestic use or industrial purpose, there has been an introduction of various advanced 3D Printing techniques. These incorporate exceptional methods of 3D Printing, thus fabricating remarkable products. Multijet Printing and Polyjet technologies are well-known in the market for… Continue reading

Staircase Effect: Learn how layer thickness affects your part quality

Staircase effect is omnipresent in 3D printing irrespective of the technology chosen. 3D printing is a manufacturing technology where parts are fabricated layer by layer, thus layers form an integral part of the process. Staircase effect is a phenomena associated with 3D printing when the layer marks become distinctly visible… Continue reading

All you need to know about FDM 3D Printing

fdm 3d printing

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is one of the most commonly used 3D Printing technologies. FDM is colloquially often wrongly referred to as Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) which is basically a desktop version of FDM technology. Know more about the difference between FDM and FFF. For the purpose of this article,… Continue reading

ABS vs PLA filament : Which one is best for 3D Printing?

ABS vs PLA filament

It is important to determine the right material for obtaining the best 3D Printing results. So let’s say that you have selected a suitable 3D Printer, bought it at a reasonable price, and have also started creating comparatively simpler objects on it… But have you actually selected the right material… Continue reading

How do we interpret material properties and their units?

Sometimes, when we look at the data-sheet of a particular material, we take for granted the material properties and its associated units without understanding their physical relevance. For e.g., one of the most important properties associated with any material is its Tensile Strength, but how many of us really know… Continue reading

Want to buy a 3D printer? This is what Chizel recommends.

Chizel started off as a 3D Printing service bureau. In those days, we ourselves had bought some 3D printers (desktop and industrial) and we realized that we, too, had not bought the right ones. Over the years, we did get a knack of the technology and industry and today we… Continue reading

What is Shore Hardness? What does it signify?

Hardness may be defined as a material’s resistance to indentation. The durometer scale was defined by Albert Ferdinand Shore. The instrument as well as the unit of measurement is called as a Durometer. Durometer is used to measure the hardness of polymers, elastomers and rubbers. Today, the name usually refers to shore hardness.… Continue reading

How 3D Printing is changing the way Architectural models are prototyped?

Is Additive manufacturing helping the architectural industry? If so, then how? This article may clear some doubts you may be having pertaining to 3D printing and its impact on the architectural sector.  Before additive manufacturing, architects used a variety of methods to display prototypes of their creative designs, doing their… Continue reading
