    Enabling Scalability for FDM Additive Manufacturing

    January 19, 2021

    This week's Product Story showcases the Toro Company and the solution they used for rapidly increasing 3D print volume while reducing existing bottlenecks

    The Toro Company first implemented Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) in 2012 to prototype smaller product components in-house. This soon turned into a full additive manufacturing shop with six 3D printers on site so they could better serve their customers and expand their additive potential. However, with the rapidly increasing print volume there were post-processing bottlenecks that arose, so Toro turned to the PostProcess BASE support removal solution to more efficiently match throughput to demand.

    A Closer Look at GrabCAD Voxel Print

    January 12, 2021

    When it comes to additive manufacturing there are many different types of technology that can be used. On the spectrum of 3D printing, voxel printing technology is probably as far away from filament strands and vats of goo as you can get. Voxel printing allows users to actually program the product material and its viscosity on a microscopic level. This results in both incredible control over color for visually stunning results and incredible control over material properties allowing for new and exciting composite materials. In this blog, we'll look at what Voxel printing is and how it is currently helping engineers who are embracing this technology.

    SOLIDWORKS 2021 Requirements and Recommendations

    January 6, 2021

    SOLIDWORKS clients often overlook the importance of having the correct hardware to support their new 3D CAD purchase. A common question we get asked is what should be considered before buying or upgrading equipment, so we thought it would be helpful to compile all the published system requirements along with our Engineering Team's recommendations in one place. Here is the information for this year's version of SOLIDWORKS as compared to last year.

    Plotting Hot Spots in SOLIDWORKS Simulation

    December 7, 2020

    We all want one thing from SOLIDWORKS Simulation — the truth! But sometimes the results can be misleading in areas of high stress. We often wonder is this high stress real? Or is it artificial or fake? There are ways to get to the bottom of this, but most approaches are tedious and require many subsequent runs of the simulation. Thanks to the SOLIDWORKS Hot Spot Diagnostics tool, you can uncover the truth in your simulations and more easily identify stress singularities versus stress concentrations.

    New HD Mode Available for Artec 3D Scanners

    October 27, 2020

    Artec 3D announces the newest innovation to their line of 3D scanners. A new software upgrade dubbed "HD Mode" powered by a new internal AI more than doubles the resolution of its existing Eva and Leo handheld scanners to 0.2 mm. The new HD mode has an elite level of noise reduction in both raw data and final model, making scanned objects ready for reverse engineering, as well as many other applications, without needing any editing.

    Benefits of Translucent 3D Printing for Team Penske Were Clear

    October 23, 2020

    This week's Product Story showcases Team Penske and how they utilize PolyJet materials to create a custom solution for expensive light replacements on racing cars. 

    Motorsport racing, as well as other professional sports, are no match for Team Penske who has a long standing tradition of winning. Part of their success is developing solutions to problems on and off the track. One expensive, recurring problem was the replacement of lights after consistent damage from racing. This led to the utilization of additive manufacturing to test new ideas and generate lower-cost replacement parts. From replacement parts to design ideas, Team Penske draws from the convenience of manufacturing in house.
