By now, we have clearly understood that there are a plethora of advantages that 3D printing offers to its customers. Let us now discuss its another aspect which has time and again proved effective and dynamic in achieving growth. Being able to manufacture parts in small batches is now a huge advantage with 3D Printing. Let us first understand the…

Online 3D Printing service : A way to ensure better quality

3D Printing opportunities have evolved and grown exponentially over the recent years, leading to an endless range of possibilities a component can be manufactured in. However, simply deciding what you want to manufacture isn’t the end of the journey. Each and every 3D printer only caters to a limited amount of materials, leaving the consumer with a paltry of choices.…

Post-processing techniques in 3D Printing

Post Processing In this article we are going to discuss in detail some of the most commonly used post-processing techniques on 3D Printed parts. Finishing: The finishing operation usually consists of polishing the parts. We use Vibratory Polishing as a finishing process to improve surface finish of the parts by removing minor surface irregularities. The setup consists of a tumbler…

Metal 3D Printing – Top Reasons To Use This Technology |

Metal 3D Printing It’s a common dilemma faced by organizations and individuals in deciding when to opt for Metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) and when not to. Thus we have compiled a list of reasons that may come in handy in deciding the same. Part Consolidation: Metal AM gives the feasibility of part consolidation. Due to elimination of conventional “design rules”,…

Why do 3D Printed parts warp?

Warp In 3D Printed Parts One of the most common phenomena experienced in 3D Printing is that of warp. Warpage leads to undesired part deformations rendering the part inoperable. As a result, most of the time is spent on either re-fabricating the warped parts, or in post-processing to mitigate the same. In this article, we will discuss some of the…

Can You 3D Print Transparent Parts?

Transparent 3D Printed Parts Transparent 3D Printing works like magic. There are applications in 3D Printing that require clear display models. When manufacturing parts in Stereolithography(SLA) technology in clear material, the parts come out translucent (50-60% transparency). To increase their transparency, we need to lacquer coat them. Lacquer coating is a post-processing technique where translucent parts are made transparent (up…
