With Multiple 3D Printer Operators, Who Is Responsible For Communicating Maintenance Needs?

March 19, 2018

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.

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.
