    Six 3D Printing Materials Put to the Test in a Golf Challenge

    June 15, 2022

    Additive manufacturing has made exceptional mechanical developments in the last few years, and now the current focus seems to have shifted to improvement in software and materials. With the demand for performance grade materials rising, it is important to gain an understanding of what it means for parts to be considered “strong.”

    It is no secret that the world is experiencing supply chain issues at every level. From raw materials shortages, bottlenecked shipping ports and even labor shortages. To overcome these challenges, a lot of organizations began looking toward additive manufacturing to supplement or complement their workflows, depending on the severity of their situations.

    Three additive manufacturing trends from AMUGExpo

    April 13, 2022

    I think I can speak for everyone when I say it has been a pleasure to watch the additive manufacturing industry grow from simple concepts and ideation in the early 1980’s to the accurate high speed production level workhorses we see before us today. The innovations that brought us here did not simply happen overnight nor in one single solitary place, which is why the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) is such a significant event. It provides a platform for all the smart and talented individuals that both contribute to and consume in the additive manufacturing industry to come together to teach, learn and collaborate with peers and colleagues.
