Today, quadcopters, more commonly referred to as "Drones," have evolved into many different categories. From Scenic Quads that are GPS controlled, used to capture amazing scenery and widely used for movie/video photography to a $5 toy for an indoor flying session, drones have become instinctively popular. Now with the advancement in 3D printing materials such as thermoplastics in the Stratasys FDM family, for years we have been replacing traditional manufacturing tools and end-use parts.

In May 2016, Stratasys released GrabCad Print, a sophisticated 3D printing app that allows designers and engineers to prepare, schedule and monitor 3D printing jobs. Since its release, GrabCAD has continued to make exciting updates to this software; and we will be updating you every other month on its new features - July 2018 sees the launch of GrabCAD Print 1.20.
Technologies like Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) are commonly known by both the most experienced, and novice, manufacturers. However, a vast number of professionals are not as aware of the use cases for Stratasys PolyJet technology. In this blog, I focus on PolyJet printers and the three leading industries that use this remarkable advancement in additive manufacturing.
Every company aims to print parts that have the look and feel of a finished product. However, if you’re more than a hobbyist it is important to understand the different types of precision 3D printing technologies available. This blog discusses the differences between Stereolithography Apparatus (SLA) from 3D Systems and Triple Jetting Technology (PolyJet) from Stratasys. Understanding the differences between how SLA vs. PolyJet impact your application will help determine your current and future needs from a 3D printer.

In most cases, when working with prototypes for consumer goods, product development engineers want a print that will most closely represent the final production part. The ability to print new iterations on the fly, as multiple changes typically take place, is crucial. This is where 3D printing comes in handy. Keep reading to learn the advantages of both PolyJet and FDM technologies when it comes to consumer goods.
