FDM Build Parameters to Create a Vacuum   The 3D printing process of layering extruded material makes FDM parts porous. This is great for many applications such as Thermoforming that requires air to be drawn through a tool. But what if you want the part to hold a vacuum? To hold a vacuum the FDM part needs to be non-porous or dense. This is often achieved by sealing the part and there are several well documented procedures for sealing parts. […]
