Optimal communication can still be obtained even when there are multiple operators using a 3D printer. One main point of contact should be designated for the printer. This contact should be well-trained and have good communication skills as they will be responsible for explaining the status of their printer, based on the information provided by the operators.

"Worry free" and "peace of mind" are just two of the phrases associated with having a maintenance contract for your Stratasys 3D printer. Many new clients will ask “What are pros to having a contract?” In this blog, we will dive into the benefits of having a maintenance contract and the drawbacks of not having one.
Haven't deployed additive manufacturing solutions at your organization yet? Still unsure of what it is or how it can provide business and operational advantages? TriMech can help. View our guide to learn how additive manufacturing can impact your design workflow and how it differs from subtractive manufacturing methods.
In today's society it would be impossible to succeed without the adoption of engineering. With each technical advancement we see, engineers are at the center of the scope - and because of that, we would like to take a moment to wish all of our fellow engineers a happy National Engineers Week!

We know not everyone eats, sleeps and breathes technology like we do. Which means maybe you haven't dived too deep into what is going to happen in the future with the industry. Since we're tech obsessed, we're constantly following additive manufacturing trends and researching what's in store for the future of 3D printing. Read our top five predictions and tell us what you think.
In the 3D printing world, speed is directly correlated with revenue. Not only do we want to improve time to market, but we also want to be the most efficient with our employees' and machines' time. To help put time back on your clock, we compiled a list of four tips for designing parts and prepping files to be printed on a Stratasys FDM 3D printer.
Your part isn't always done after the machine goes quiet. Depending on the intended end-use, some 3D printed parts coming off a Stratasys FDM printer will require post processing. To make this process a little easier, we compiled a list of FAQ about post-processing FDM parts.
In 2018 our New Year’s Resolution is to keep our printers clean all year round. And we’re determined to make it last! (Unlike last year’s goal of eating healthy… which only lasted until January 2nd when we had leftover Holiday cookies for breakfast.)
From orienting your part, to selecting fill style, to sending your digital files, there are a lot of factors that go into 3D printing. And to add to that, these modes change depending on the model's intended end use. To help you accomplish a successful print, we outline the best ways to use orientation and fill.
The long awaited time has finally arrived for Desktop Metal customers in the pioneer program. The first printers from their Studio System are shipping! This printer set is FDM based, including a debinder and sintering furnace. According to Desktop Metal, their printer is ten times less expensive than existing technology today.
3D printing is a process that embraces the production of unique, customized, short-run parts. During the holiday season, I can think of nothing better to take advantage of this concept than by designing some interesting TriMech and Stratasys themed cookie cutters in SOLIDWORKS and then printing them out using the food-contact safe ULTEM 1010 CG material.
Successful rapid prototyping could be the difference between beating your competition to market or heading back to the drawing board. Lucky for you, one of our Application Engineers, Tommy DuPuy, shared some of his tips for successful rapid prototyping.
