Client Story: How 3D Printing Changed Prototyping at Axon

November 15, 2016

When Axon Corporation initially decided to purchase a Stratasys Objet Eden260V, they believed it would be used mostly for production tooling. Today, 3D printing has infiltrated their workflow and provides an array of solutions for their engineering team.

PolyJet 3D Printer Maintenance: What You Need to Know

January 14, 2016

Is your 3D printer suffering from neglect? Often times printer vendors make it sound like all you have to do is plug in and print, but the Application Engineers at TriMech know better. See our tips below on keeping your PolyJet printer operating at peak performance levels.

If you have further questions about why or how to perform these maintenance tasks, please contact our support team.

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.

Benefit from Soluble Support with the Objet Eden260VS

May 19, 2015

Eden-260-VSProduct Spotlight: Objet Eden260VS

The first time I was wowed by 3D printing technology was with the Objet Eden260V at the University of Florida. And yes, the first PolyJet print I ever witnessed was a semi-transparent Yoda head. The detail was remarkable, especially when comparing it to the ZCorp powder prints that I was used to. Recently, this printer received a significant upgrade to match the new material and support options offered by Stratasys. Read our blog to learn more!

Fact Checking the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer Technology Event

February 3, 2015

As HP took the stage last October to announce their Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology, media reporters were looking for a few key answers:

  • When will HP’s 3D printer using this technology ship;
  • What’s the performance;
  • What’s the cost, and the big question;
  • Will it radically change the 3D printing industry?

All good questions, but unfortunately, we won’t have definite answers until at least 2016, which is the earliest that the first iteration of an HP 3D printer with Multi Jet Fusion was announced to ship. But that didn’t stop HP­­—or in some cases the media—from creating a large amount of hype, including the seemingly certain idea that HP would be turning the industrial 3D printing world upside down.

It’s generally risky to say any new technology that’s over a year away will be radically changing an industry. Yet maybe the announcement simply makes business sense for today’s HP, which is preparing to split into two companies (Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, and HP Inc.). There seems to be an effort with this 3D printing announcement to demonstrate innovation and new ideas coming from a company that has become best known for desktop printers and PCs. Because of this, we decided to do some fact checking of our own.
