Toolpaths are the machine’s movements that build the parts we want, either in subtractive or additive technologies. One of the key differences between additive and subtractive methods is the porosity of the created part. Porosity is the number of voids by volume in any material. Most if not all subtractive processes (while using the same 3D printable materials like ASA/ABS) will result in non-porous parts. However, due to the FDM nature of additive technology, the parts created will be porous. […]

This past Monday I returned from the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) conference. Once again we set attendance (both overall and first time attendee), sponsorship and exhibition records. For those of you that do not know, The Additive Manufacturing Users Group's origins date back to the early 1990s when the founding industry users group was called 3D Systems North American Stereolithography Users Group, a user group solely focused on the advancement of stereolithography (SL) use with the owners and operators of 3D […]
