3D Injection Molding Streamlined

June 15, 2017

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.

How to Perform a Weight Test for a Stratasys Objet 3D Printer

May 18, 2017

Have you been noticing the print quality on your Stratasys Objet 3D printer diminishing? Are parts starting to look like they are melting or sinking? While this can be caused by a variety of complications, one of the most common solutions is a simple weight test calibration. In this blog, we explain the purpose of a weight test, signs your machine needs to be calibrated and how to perform a weight test for Stratasys Objet 3D printers.

Effects of a Poor UV Calibration in Your PolyJet 3D Printer

March 29, 2017

If you’re a PolyJet user, there is a good chance you’ve experienced under-cured or over-cured parts at least once—especially if the UV Calibration Wizard hasn’t been run in a while. In this blog, I’ll explain the effects of a poor UV calibration (low and high) and how to avoid running into these problems.

Injection Mold Prototyping Using Stratasys 3D Printing Tested by HASCO

September 29, 2015

HASCO, makers of standardized mold products, faced a common design challenge. Their initial design for an ABS plastic sealing screw required a wall thickness too large for traditional injection molding. So they redesigned the part using a thinner wall, but instead of creating an aluminum tool to test the design, they 3D printed the mold design using Stratasys additive manufacturing technology.
