    What to Expect After You Purchase a 3D Printer

    May 24, 2022

    Whether you’re looking to purchase a new Stratasys 3D printer from TriMech or just ordered one, you may be wondering, what happens now? Do I have to do anything on my end to make sure that this printer arrives safely? What kind of information do I need to provide to TriMech to facilitate this delivery? When will the machine be installed? Maybe something else? Today, we’re going to tackle that very topic!

    What is FDM technology and how does it work?

    May 9, 2022

    Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printing is probably the most common and highly adopted form of 3D printing. When you picture 3D printing or additive manufacturing, FDM is likely the technology that first comes to mind. FDM is extrusion based, which means plastic is heated until is becomes semi-liquid and is extruded along computer-controlled tool paths to build objects layer-by-layer.

    Understanding the Potential of Additive Manufacturing - PolyJet

    April 26, 2022

    Additive manufacturing is widely used among many different industries with companies taking advantage of its many benefits. There are several additive manufacturing technologies including Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Stereolithography (SL), PolyJet, Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), Powder Bed Fusion, Programmable PhotoPolymerization (P3™), Selective Absorption Fusion (SAF) and more, each with advantages and disadvantages depending on the application.

    What is Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS) And How Does It Work?

    April 20, 2022

    DMLS is a powder-bed fusion system utilizing the laser power as the heat source to melt a layer of evenly distributed metal powder. The laser is directed by a mirror to selectively scan over a path defined by the CAD file. The powder layer thickness can be adjusted and usually is set as 30, 60 or 90 microns. Once a layer is finished, the roller dispenses a fresh layer of powder and this cycle repeats until the part is fully printed.

    Top 5 Industries for PolyJet 3D Printing

    March 29, 2022

    In the kingdom of 3D printing FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) has long reigned as the most well-known and accessible technology. However, the tides are changing as technology grows and more options become accessible. TriMech has offerings in several areas of 3D printing technologies including FDM, P3 (Programmable Photo-Polymerization), SL (stereolithography), SAF (Selective Absorption Fusion), and PolyJet. Today we will be focusing on the top 5 industry uses of PolyJet.

    3D Printing Tech Tips Add Color to St. Patrick's Day Festivities

    March 22, 2022

    When you think of making models using an Additive Technology, one of the things that certainly comes to mind these days is that you can make parts in color! Some technology are better suited to this, such as our PolyJet technology using the Stratasys J55 or J850, which I’ve created all sorts of content for on our blog in the past, but you seldom of FDM technology as an option. I'll show you how easy it is!

    Top 5 industries for FDM 3D printing

    March 22, 2022

    Stratasys FDM, or fused-deposition modeling, is a popular form of 3D printing used by both hobbyists and large-scale industries alike. The process can be described as controlling a hot glue gun on a flat plane to selectively deposit thermoplastic material onto a flat build plate layer-by-layer. Many FDM printers have multiple nozzles configured to specifically print model or support material. This article takes a brief look at the top 5 industries that benefit the most from FDM 3D printers:
