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 I will be updating you every month on its new features - May 2018 launches GrabCAD Print 1.16 & 1.17.

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.

Our QA blog series looks at different members of our team and their perspective on the most current 3D printing and CAD technology. This month’s QA features Rich Annino and RP Services for PolyJet parts.
Are you familiar with which PolyJet materials are compatible with Stratasys' Connex line of printers? Have you ever used the Tango family of simulated rubber-like materials, one of the most flexible sets of 3D printing materials on the market? If you answered "yes" to either of these questions, then you are going to LOVE Stratasys' newly released formula for simulated rubber. Keep reading to learn why you should add Agilus30 to your toolbox of 3D printing materials.
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.

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.

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.

When the lease is up at the office or you’re in the middle of moving buildings, the last thing you want to worry about is how to prep your Stratasys 3D printer for transport. Stop stressing over questions like “How do you pack this thing up?” or “How do you make sure everything is secure, so material doesn’t clog the print heads or the fluid lines?”, and learn the best ways to transport your machine.
