Improving Workflow With Exploded Flat View in SOLIDWORKS

May 30, 2018

In many industries, quick manufacturing turnaround is an important element of the design process. When sending an assembly with multiple 2D flat components to a cutting machine, organizing and outputting these profiles can be tedious. If your workflow involves exporting these profiles as part of one drawing, the traditional technique is to create a view of each component, which can later be exported to a 2D format. For a faster alternative, keep reading!

Choose FDM and ABS/ASA Parts When Surface Finish is Top Priority

May 29, 2018

Yes, you did read that title right. It may seem counter intuitive and may go against everything you have been taught about 3D printing, but in reality ABS and ASA material have a few tricks hidden up their sleeve. There is a common notion to use ABS and/or ASA for strength and PolyJet/SLA for surface finish. However, you can get the strength and part stability ABS is known for, as well as the surface finish that rivals injection molded parts. And there are multiple methods of achieving this.

Training

A Week of 3D Printing With and Without Training

May 24, 2018

The fact that most companies have had 3D printers or an additive manufacturing center in-house for years now is not surprising. Stratasys systems are more than capable to do whatever we throw at them. For the purposes of comparing a week's worth of productivity with and without 3D printer training, I decided to explore one of our current client's workflows. This client owns two of Stratasys' newest FDM systems, the Fortus 450mc and an F370mc
