Yes, you did read that title right. It may seem counter intuitive and may go against everything you have been taught about 3D printing, but in reality ABS and ASA material have a few tricks hidden up their sleeve. There is a common notion to use ABS and/or ASA for strength and PolyJet/SLA for surface finish. However, you can get the strength and part stability ABS is known for, as well as the surface finish that rivals injection molded parts. And there are multiple methods of achieving this.

For over a decade, companies have tried to pin FDM technology against PolyJet technology. Whether it be the fine detail of PolyJet capabilities outweighing the lack of support needed for FDM, or that the strength of materials available in FDM is worth the additional time of printing over the PolyJet, an argument can usually be made to justify one over the other. Although some industries may always lean one way more than the other, I am here to discuss the benefits of having both technologies under the same roof.
Did you know on a day off, an NBA player still goes through conditioning, physical therapy, studies film, analyzes plays, lift weights and so much more? Just like the basketball pros, our tech professionals continue to go through training (less protein powder is involved though). Most recently, our team in Marlborough, MA participated in classes to learn how to operate the new Nano Dimension printer, DragonFly 2020

It seems like 3D printers can use any material nowadays. Desktop Metal is reinventing the way engineering and manufacturing teams produce metal parts with the ability to print in metal. There are even some printers that can print chocolate, pasta and wait for it— pizza! However, most commercial 3D printers create parts in some sort of plastic. To help you choose which is right for your application, we outline some key material properties below.
Enough books to fill a bookshelf have been written about Design-For-Manufacture (DFM) parts that will be machined or casted. On the other hand, when it comes to resources on how to DFM for 3D printing, there is a void.

In an ideal world, when we ran into a printer error we would hit the “Easy” button and everything would be fixed. Luckily, issues with 3D printers tend to be on the rare side. But on those occasions when you do get an error, you don’t need an Easy button. You just need the troubleshooting tips below!
