Advancements in 3D printing technology have led to new innovative ways design and manufacturing engineers have brought products to life. In recent years, athletic and sports industries have quickly become one of the largest adapters of 3D printing. Utilizing the speed of part production and flexible material options, the sports industry has made great strides in improving the athlete experience. All major sporting goods brands have adopted 3D printing to optimize their product lines. Major benefits companies are gaining from […]
Whether modeling in SOLIDWORKS, Creo, NX, or any other Computer Aided Design (CAD) software, bringing your design to life is easy with a 3D Printer, but it all starts with an STL file. Here are some tips to consider for your next design, to get the best possible 3D Print, while reducing material waste. First, watch the walls. The width of thin walls should be designed as a multiple of the filament bead width, bearing in mind the number of […]
There are a lot of really interesting 3D printing project that have made the headlines in recent years, maybe the most impactful projects where 3D printing has assisted is in the medical industry. The traditional approach for operating on an organ probably didn’t involve practicing on a test organ that has the exact fit and issues that are in the patient about to go under the knife, 3D printing is changing that. Using scanning technologies along with Stratasys Polyjet 3D […]
On Tuesday, Stratasys announced a brand new support material available to all Polyjet Connex customers, SUP706. Running on all triple-jetting 3D printers, SUP706 is compatible with all Polyjet materials, the only exception being specifically identified hearing aid materials. This new support material opens up doors to print even more detail geometries and reduces the already low design constrictions Polyjet users have. Key benefits to the new Sup706 include. Maximize productivity of your triple-jetting system and achieve a low TCO per […]
History Channel recently aired a new documentary entitled “Bigfoot Captured”, which researchers at Idaho State University utilized Stratasys 3D printing to print an 8 foot tall life size skeleton replica of what researchers believe fabled creature to looks like.
