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.

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!

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:
Reverse engineering is the measurement of a physical object that is then converted into a 3D CAD model for use in software. It is widely used in many industries including automotive, aerospace, manufacturing and many more. Reverse engineering helps to uncover how an object works or is designed when the files are not readily available.

3D Printing has enabled many of the world’s most demanding industries to break into new areas of manufacturing and production with materials that can withstand the harshest environments.
As market demand for low-mid volume manufacturing surges due to economic and environmental pressures, the focal point of additive manufacturing has shifted material development to include mechanical properties such as lower coefficients of friction, increased rigidity or even increased heat resistance to meet stringent product design requirements.

When working with 3D printing, there are times when you just can’t get your part to fit inside of the build volume of your printer. You can flip your part around, run it on a funny angle, or even try scaling it…but at the end of the day, sometimes you just have to cut the part in half to make it work. Don’t worry, we will help you out by highlighting three common scenarios.
3D printing works by taking digital files and bringing them to life as objects in the real world. 3D scanning does just the opposite – it takes an existing object and captures it digitally. This blog discusses how adding high-resolution 3D scanning to your workflows can help your business make better decisions, save money and reduce your time to market.

Wondering what the difference is, or how SOLIDWORKS and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform work together when it comes to 3D printing? In this article, we’ll be sending a part file from SOLIDWORKS to the 3D printer and using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to collaborate and communicate with team members to bring the entire process to a full circle.
