    What is PolyJet technology and how does it work?

    June 21, 2022

    Do you need the ability to create highly accurate full color parts with multiple shore values and nearly invisible layer lines? A PolyJet 3D printer might be the solution. PolyJet machines have a wide selection of available materials including vibrant colors, ultra clears, flexible, and biocompatibility. Materials can also be mixed into digital materials. Digital materials are a mixture or blend of two or more base materials to create a material with its own unique properties. If you want to learn more about printing in full color, you can check out this blog post: Printing Colors: PolyJet.

    Six 3D Printing Materials Put to the Test in a Golf Challenge

    June 15, 2022

    Additive manufacturing has made exceptional mechanical developments in the last few years, and now the current focus seems to have shifted to improvement in software and materials. With the demand for performance grade materials rising, it is important to gain an understanding of what it means for parts to be considered “strong.”

    It is no secret that the world is experiencing supply chain issues at every level. From raw materials shortages, bottlenecked shipping ports and even labor shortages. To overcome these challenges, a lot of organizations began looking toward additive manufacturing to supplement or complement their workflows, depending on the severity of their situations.

    Understanding the Potential of Additive Manufacturing - PolyJet

    April 26, 2022

    Additive manufacturing is widely used among many different industries with companies taking advantage of its many benefits. There are several additive manufacturing technologies including Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM), Stereolithography (SL), PolyJet, Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS), Powder Bed Fusion, Programmable PhotoPolymerization (P3™), Selective Absorption Fusion (SAF) and more, each with advantages and disadvantages depending on the application.

    Top 5 Industries for PolyJet 3D Printing

    March 29, 2022

    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.

    PolyJet Maintenance Tips for Better Quality Prints

    January 21, 2022

    Properly maintaining your 3D printer is the best and most important way to ensure the optimal performance and longevity of your 3D printing machine. By disregarding these maintenance tips and procedures, you are guaranteed to have bad prints and malfunctioning parts. Here at TriMech, we don’t want to see your investment go to the scrapyard just because the maintenance on the machine was neglected. There are four maintenance categories that you want to focus on, and we’ll cover them in this article. They are head cleaning, maintenance wizards, material storage, and machine cleaning.

    FDM Maintenance Tips and Tricks to Start Your Year

    January 7, 2022

    Keeping a properly maintained and efficient running 3D printer takes time and a dedicated schedule so that your printer continues to reliably print parts as it did on day one. In the long run, a properly maintained printer is simply easier to run, more efficient, less trouble, offers better prints and provides a higher ROI. There are four main categories to maintaining your FDM printer so that it continues to produce optimal and reliable prints, and in this article, we’ll break down the maintenance items into four sections. They are calibration, material storage, tips and flicker brush system, and overall cleanliness of the machine.

    Three Ways to Add Threads to a 3D Printed Part

    December 17, 2021

    The idea for this tip came to me as I was working on my remote-control (RC) Ornithopter design. The goal is to securely fasten the flap mechanism for flight and at the same time, a way for me to disassemble when needed. There are a few methods I can use to add threads to this 3D printed part, and in this article, I will add threads using the best method for this application. Glue is an excellent lightweight and strong option, however, I wanted to be able to disassemble my bird. So glue won’t cut it. I needed a better solution. For me, that means incorporating set screws and threads into my design. Let’s look at three methods typically used to add threads to 3D parts and why I chose one method over the others.

    Assigning Multiple Materials When 3D Printing a Part in GrabCAD Print

    December 3, 2021

    With many 3D printing technologies on the market, only one reigns supreme when it comes to building parts with multiple materials at one time – Stratasys PolyJet. We find that many people get very excited about multi-material printing (and rightfully so), but they seem to quickly get intimidated by the process (NOT rightfully so). In this article, I want to show how easy it is to work with multi-material builds using Stratasys PolyJet printers. Spoiler alert – it is just as easy as FDM.
