    Support Removal Using VVD Technology

    March 24, 2020

    Support and resin removal are often overlooked when it comes to the crucial steps needed to ensure your final part is perfect. Multiple variables come in to play, such as different materials and types of removal, which creates more opportunities to damage your prints. Volumetric Velocity Dispersion (VVD) brings a reliable solution to the variables of support and resin removal with automated removal using two jet rack manifolds to provide gentle and accurate support removal on complex geometries. Let's dive into this support and resin removal technology and how it will make a difference in finishing your parts.

    Solving Communication Breakdown - Part Three: Version Control

    March 23, 2020

    “So… should I show the customer ‘MasterAssembly-new-latest-USETHIS-keep’ or ‘MasterAssembly-final-DONOTDELETE-approved-updated’?” Thanks to data management tools like SOLIDWORKS PDM, these phrases in the office are a thing of the past. With SOLIDWORKS PDM, maintaining a file’s history and accessing the latest revision is second nature. Unfortunately, you’d need to be tethered to the PDM Vault to account for the latest updates, even with remote access. You know what would be even better for universal version control, especially when needing to show the latest file version on the fly? Taking the file confidence of PDM and wrapping it into an intuitive social platform, like 3DEXPERIENCE ENOVIA accessible anywhere you’re connected to the Internet.

    3D Printing in PANTONE [UPDATED]

    March 1, 2020

    In 2019, Stratasys announced that their J735/J750 and their J835/J850 PolyJet machines successfully passed the rigorous requirements needed to make them the world’s first and only PANTONE-validated 3D printers. This was a huge hit and manufacturers around the world were rejoicing. Last month, Stratasys launched the newest member of their J-series, the J826, which is also PANTONE-capable. This changes the game for 3D printing as design and prototype colors can now be matched with 100% specificity, making the process from concept to final product even more accurate.

    Support Removal Using SVC Technology

    February 25, 2020

    When it comes to 3D printing, there is plenty of information on how to set up the perfect print. However, there is another important step to achieving that impeccable model that often gets overlooked in the process, removing the support correctly to ensure there is no damage to the part. Submersed Vortex Cavitation (SVC) is a type of technology that is ideal for automated hands-free removal of support material on multiple types of 3D printed parts. Let's dive into this technology and how it can make a difference in finishing your parts and prototypes.

    Introducing the New Stratasys J826 3D Printer

    February 17, 2020

    Stratasys just released the newest addition to their J-series family of PolyJet 3D printers, the Stratasys J826, an entry-level printer for the enterprise design world. Just like the J850, the J826 has been created using Stratasys' best-in-class PolyJet technology and is part of the only family of printers currently available that can print full-color, multi-material models in a single print. It provides the same end-to-end solution for the design process and ultra-realistic simulation at a lower price point.

    3D Printing Composite Materials: Micro Automated Fiber Placement

    February 4, 2020

    Automated Fiber Placement (AFP) is the additive manufacturing process of creating 3D shapes using composite layers of heated resin, which also contains non-metallic fibers. This process can result in 3D printed parts that are two times stronger than steel at one-fifth of the weight (which is excellent); however, the technology traditionally requires million-dollar AFP systems (which is not great). Desktop Metal has recently launched its new Fiber™ platform, which utilizes a technology they call “micro” automated fiber placement (μAFP), that radically reduces the structure and cost of the typical AFP process .

    Solving Communication Breakdown - Part Two: Cloud Power

    January 21, 2020

    What if you, your team and your clients had instant access to all aspects of your product in a single location? How about having an environment where everyone could be included in brainstorming sessions, provide and receive constructive criticism, effectively manage people and resources and create and validate innovative products? What if you could offer more than just a conference call and a SharePoint site so that no one was ever left out, whether they’re at their desk or in the field? Enabling internal and external users to come together in real-time for the product’s entire life cycle is probably the most significant step in resolving breaks in communication and this is possible by leveraging cloud technology.
