Fashion Jewelry In 3D Printing

  The production of various ornaments and jewelry is one of the dynamic industries that have incorporated 3D Printing Technology. Thousands of jewelers and goldsmiths all over the world are relying on this 3D Printing Technology to effectively reform the way the jewelry industry performed a few years back. Moving over CNC Machining in many cases, this technology can now…

Making 3D Printed Guns Legal – Is it a Smart Move?

  The day 5th March 2013 witnessed an unusual incident when software and illustrative files were uploaded by Defense Distributed which is based in Austin and is a non-profit organization. This uploaded information epitomized the conception of a completely operational 3D Printed plastic gun, named as “The Liberator”. As stated by the Forbes magazine, there were in all sixteen prototypes…

The Future Of Manufacturing! Where do Humans Fit In?

100 years back, most of our forefathers worked in farms, and then came the first industrial revolution. There was a shift in employment from farming to working in factories. People re-trained to work in factories and the productivity exploded. Future of Manufacturing is really interesting from a perspective. Manufacturing sector today is on the verge of a similar transition as…

How to Fabricate Moving Part Assemblies in 3D Printing?

Conventionally, for moving part assemblies, the individual parts are fabricated separately, and are later assembled together. But in 3D printing, with little consideration, the entire assembly can be fabricated in one single go. There are technologies in 3D printing viz. Fused Filament Fabrication/Fused Deposition Modeling, Stereolithography etc., where supports structures are generated during part fabrication. In such technologies, moving part assemblies…

Design Guidelines for Embossing & Engraving features in 3D Printing

Embossing & Engraving Done Right In 3D Printing Embossing & engraving features are done on parts to demarcate them from the rest. At times to convey important information related to the part geometry, and sometimes to give the parts a personal touch. A bad embossing/engraving can lead to a part that looks shabby. Thus, getting the right thickness and depth…

Why do Holes And Cavities Come Cut Undersized in 3D Printing?

It’s been a common complain that, although the part geometries have a near-net shape, some of the part features like holes and cavities are compromised at times. It’s been an observed trait in 3D printing that the holes oriented vertically (Z) w.r.t to the laser direction yield elliptical, undersized holes as compared to holes oriented horizontally w.r.t the laser direction…

Polyjet vs Multijet is a topic sort out by interested people who want to use these technologies to the fullest potential. These incorporate exceptional methods of 3D Printing,…

Staircase Effect: How To Avoid it & Ensure Part Quality

STAIRCASE EFFECT 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 on the surface of the parts, giving the…

FDM Technology Made Simple – 3D Printing

FDM Technology Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM Technology) 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. FDM Vs FFF Difference. For the purpose of this article, and to uncover the details of this technology, we will address FFF…

ABS vs PLA Material : Product Designers Guide

ABS vs PLA 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 for the given 3D Printing job? The…
