How to Reduce 3D Print Build Time Part 3: Model Material as Support

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

FDM Model Material as Support When it’s down to the wire, often reducing a parts build time is critical with 3D printing. Just in time manufacturing sometimes is just that, and shaving every minute out of a build can be the difference. In previous blogs we have explored the topics of reducing build time by changing raster and contour properties, in this blog we will be talking about using model material as support. With all Stratasys FDM printers 2 dis-similar […]
