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

FDM vs FFF: Know the difference!

Doesn’t FDM and FFF cater to a similar technology? Yes. So that means they are one and the same, right? No. Here’s a short answer to your question: They are similar. But despite being similar, they are different. Explore the longer version below: Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) is a proprietary… Continue reading
