Desktop Metal Shop System

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Metal 3D printing has been firmly stuck in the land of highly customized one-off production parts and prototyping, like rocket engine parts. Almost all metal 3D printers can not get anywhere near the speed needed to create mass production parts. But that changes with the capabilities of the Desktop Metal Shop System. This is the first metal binder jetting system designed for the machine shop. The DM Shop System is a powder bed based, inkjet technology that allows for mass […]

Desktop Metal 3D Printing Process – Debinding

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

In the last post we went over how the Desktop Metal 3D printing process can print larger parts than can be made with the metal injection molding (MIM) method. This is due to the ability of it to print parts with a hollow infill and how the debinding process works.   Before the parts can move onto to the furnace to be sintered, they need to have to binding agents removed from them. This is done in a liquid chemical […]

Desktop Metal Studio System: 3D-Printed Flexures

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

The Desktop Metal Studio System+ offers not only the convenience of office-friendly 3D printing, but the ability to 3D-print metal flexures. Flexure: (n.) A flexible feature (or combination of elements) within a part, engineered to be compliant in specific degrees of freedom. Background Flexures are used for precise adjustment in devices like optical stages and actuating clamps—such as collets and compliant features—where minimizing backlash is critical. Based on their geometric complexity, fine features, and susceptibility to vibration, flexure designs are challenging […]

SOLIDWORKS 2019 What’s New – Configuring the Precision of Dimensions and Tolerances – #SW2019

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Controlling the precision of dimensions in SOLIDWORKS has always been integral to capturing design intent and ensuring the finished part will be manufactured within tolerance. In certain cases, a critical dimension and/or tolerance might require different precision from one configuration to another due to a change in material or manufacture method. Previously, this information would have required two separate parts to capture. In SOLIDWORKS 2019, you can now directly configure precision. From the Dimension PropertyManager, specify a desired tolerance and […]
