Resolution, Accuracy, and Tolerance – What’s the difference?

                Far too often we have seen customers enquire about a 3D Printer’s resolution when they actually were trying to enquire about its accuracy and vice-versa!             The problem is so grave that even some of the 3D Printing service providers fall prey …

Learn How To Interpret Materials & Their Units Without Getting Confused

Interpret Material Properties & 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 …

Graphene: The Wonder Material That Will Rule The Future |

Graphene Graphene is, if the title of this article hasn’t already given it away, the strongest 3D Printing material to have ever been produced yet. In layman’s terms, Graphene is a thin layer of pure carbon; it is a single, tightly packed layer of carbon atoms that are bonded together in a hexagonal honeycomb lattice. In …

PC-equivalent plastic

PC-equivalent plastic PC-equivalent plastic is translucent (50–60% transparency) and comes with an inherent smooth surface finish. PC-equivalent plastic is a resin-based material simulating the properties of Polycarbonate. It is translucent (50–60% transparency) and comes with an inherent smooth surface finish. Since PC-equivalent parts are fabricated in Stereolithography (SLA) technology, there is support structure generation under the …
