In 2018 our New Year’s Resolution is to keep our printers clean all year round. And we’re determined to make it last! (Unlike last year’s goal of eating healthy… which only lasted until January 2nd when we had leftover Holiday cookies for breakfast.)
From orienting your part, to selecting fill style, to sending your digital files, there are a lot of factors that go into 3D printing. And to add to that, these modes change depending on the model's intended end use. To help you accomplish a successful print, we outline the best ways to use orientation and fill.
The long awaited time has finally arrived for Desktop Metal customers in the pioneer program. The first printers from their Studio System are shipping! This printer set is FDM based, including a debinder and sintering furnace. According to Desktop Metal, their printer is ten times less expensive than existing technology today.
3D printing is a process that embraces the production of unique, customized, short-run parts. During the holiday season, I can think of nothing better to take advantage of this concept than by designing some interesting TriMech and Stratasys themed cookie cutters in SOLIDWORKS and then printing them out using the food-contact safe ULTEM 1010 CG material.
Successful rapid prototyping could be the difference between beating your competition to market or heading back to the drawing board. Lucky for you, one of our Application Engineers, Tommy DuPuy, shared some of his tips for successful rapid prototyping.

Tis the season! Now that Thanksgiving has passed, the holidays will be here before you know it. We want to help you get a jump start on your shopping, without fighting crowds on Black Friday and without spending your lunch break on the computer trying to snatch up Cyber Monday deals. We complied a list of our top five 3D printed gifts we're giving this season, complete with instructions and downloadable .stl files. Happy printing!
The year may be winding down, but Stratasys is not. They are giving the Stratasys J750 a software update with the new GrabCAD Voxel Print! Read more to find out what this update entails.

Since the Wright brothers first launched their wood and canvas glider in the early 1900s, technology has improved dramatically, making international travel and space exploration a reality. Additive manufacturing, better known as 3D printing, is playing a major role in this revolution by reducing weight, strengthening materials and streamlining design in the aerospace industry.
