    3D Printing in PANTONE [UPDATED]

    November 5, 2019

    In April of 2019, Stratasys announced that their J735 and J750 PolyJet machines successfully passed the rigorous requirements needed to make it the world’s first and only PANTONE-validated 3D printers. This was a huge hit and manufacturers around the world were rejoicing. In October of the same year Stratasys added two other members to its J-series of printers, the J835 and J850, which are also PANTONE-validated and include even more material options. This changes the game for 3D printing as design and prototype colors can now be matched with 100% specificity, making the process from concept to final product even more accurate.

    Using 3D Technology for Heritage Preservation

    October 28, 2019

    Many people’s dream is to travel the world and experience new adventures. But this might not always be the case because of natural disasters, over-tourism or even human-motivated vandalism. To document these at-risk landmarks and relics, 3D technologies, such as laser scanning, drones and photogrammetry are used to capture the detailed images of these places and objects. While heritage preservation has played an important role in encouraging more cultural exploration, there is a whole new use of 3D technology which could cause awareness and appreciation nationwide over the next decade from the comfort of our own homes.

    3D Printing Living Hinge Prototypes: Best Practices [UPDATED]

    October 11, 2019

    Do you work with living hinges? If you’re in the consumer products space, it's likely that’s a “yes.” A living hinge is simply a one-piece hinge—just a thin, flexible piece made from the same material as the rigid components it connects. Living hinges are found in plastic packaging, dispensing caps, thermoformed clam shell packaging and more. Manufacturing guidelines are easy to obtain for a variety of use cases.
