While Stratasys has always been the pioneer of 3D printing, it’s important to know that there are many different types of technologies and materials surrounding 3D printing, also known as “additive manufacturing”.   Stratasys 3D printers use one of two technologies. The ever popular “Fused Deposition Modeling”, FDM, and the “Polyjet” technology.   FDM FDM is the main 3D printing technology that everyone knows about and has seen. Real engineering grade thermoplastics are made into a filament, round up in […]

Have you ever wanted to know how rapid prototyping/3D printing materials stand up to each other? Well, the team at rapid prototyping service bureau VistaTek have and commissioned an independant study to test the durability of the most common materials on the market for rapid prototyping and 3D printing. An independant lab tested materials from a variety of technologies including; Objet, FDM, SLA, and SLS. Guess what? Objet came out on top. Thats right, the Objet RGD5160 DM (AKA Objet […]
