    PolyJet vs FDM - Which Is Best for Education?

    May 4, 2021

    Technology continues to develop at an ever-faster pace and educators have long realized that the best way for students to keep up, is to gain hands-on experience. 3D printing is no exception, and many schools and universities are integrating 3D printers into their curriculums. These tools give students capabilities that could only have been imagined years ago, while building skills that apply to real-world applications. The challenge for educators is sorting through the wealth of options that exist, to narrow down the best choice for their students. In this article, we will explain some of the benefits of key 3D printing technologies and the departments that could take advantage of each one.

    15 Ways to Speed Up Your Design Process

    May 3, 2021

    Whenever we ask participants in training classes what lessons they hope to take away from the training, the most common question is “How can I design more efficiently?” Using SOLIDWORKS, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and additive manufacturing can accelerate your process from idea to prototype to product, but it can be hard to know how those tools can can apply to your specific needs and business. We've looked at each of these and pulled out what we feel are the top 15 tips to get you speeding up your design process as soon as possible.

    Transforming Additive Operations with Automated Resin Post-Printing

    April 20, 2021

    Since March 2020, additive manufacturing has gained a lot of press for the way in which it was relied upon for pandemic emergency supply production. When hospitals and healthcare facilities were suddenly short on everything from personal protective equipment (PPE) to breathing apparatuses, additive manufacturing stepped up to the plate to produce mass volumes of these critical supplies.

    Specifically, additive users often turn to vat photopolymerization print technologies like stereolithography (SLA), Digital Light Processing (DLP) and Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) for benefits like highly accurate part builds and cost-effectiveness. However, the final leg of this process, post-printing and especially resin removal, has traditionally been prohibitive to this technology’s progress, until recently.
