    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.

    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.
