If you have not heard about the term 3DIM or 3D injection molds, it has been around for several years. Originally, this started with prototype injection molds out of aluminum and served the purpose of pre-phase or beta versions and functional testing for the R&D process. While this process was faster than using traditional P21 tooling, it still required a large investment of time and money to get a simple tool. Thanks to 3DIM and Stratasys PolyJet 3D printers, we now have a more streamlined process.

More college graduates are well-versed in SOLIDWORKS than any other CAD system. SOLIDWORKS continues to lead the charge with a presence in a multitude of high schools and even some middle schools. Students are learning the skills necessary to lead the future of design.
But what about the younger generations? Their creativity seems to know no bounds. So what can we do to introduce them to 3D design and allow that creativity to flourish?

Stratasys 3D printers support a wide range of additive manufacturing applications. PolyJet and FDM technology offer game-changing solutions from rapid prototyping to manufacturing tools and production parts to finishing processes. This blog provides an overview of popular 3D printing applications and what to know about composite tooling with FDM technology.
Anyone who has compared traditional FDM (sometimes called Fused Filament Fabrication) to other 3D printing technologies, such as Polyjet, SLA, and SLS, has definitely thought at one time or another “This technology is both inexpensive to print and strong, but I really wish it had better resolution.” In this blog, we explore how to make FDM look as good as other technologies while remaining inexpensive and not impacting overall strength. We’ve printed a horde of Easter Island Moai to play around with the top three ways to smooth PLA parts.
