Know Your Materials: Different Vero Options

January 22, 2019

Stratasys Vero PolyJet materials are photopolymers known and used for 3D printing parts that require smoothness and accuracy, and for their strength, stiffness and versatility. These materials are commonly used to 3D print prototypes that are as close as they can be to the final product.  Although they belong to the same family, not all of the Vero materials can be combined with each other. Let's explore the differences of the Vero line of materials.

5 Best SOLIDWORKS Tricks You Wish You Knew

January 21, 2019

This time of year is known for award shows, so we thought we’d jump into the mix and award the best TriMech Video Tech Tips for 2018. We had 52 amazing nominees, consisting of every Video Tech Tip we sent out in 2018. It’s a competitive field since these are published every week and each one was surely honored to be selected, produced and distributed for everyone to learn from. Voting was done by our TriMech Application Engineers with the criteria focused around which videos had the biggest impact on users. After we tallied all the votes we had our final top five Video Tech Tips!
