3D printing a functional prototype is one of the most critical steps in the development of any product or solution. It allows for testing, hands-on fit and finish testing and the ability to make design iterations on the fly before the final product is made. It allows for problems and defects to be found quickly, saving you both time and money. Plus, prototyping can be done in 5 easy steps.

Magic is in the air this holiday season at TriMech with all of the new toys we’ve been getting here in our print lab lately. Since we’ve been given the gift of an incredible new Stratasys J750, I decided that it would be great to get into the holiday spirit and create a miniature winter scene to share with some of my clients and co-workers that don’t get to experience all of the charm and joy that snow brings this time of year.

The J750 is Stratasys’ new flagship PolyJet 3D printer, capable of creating some of the most amazing parts and assemblies you can imagine. Here at TriMech, we’ve upgraded to the newest version of the J750 with all of the latest updates, and we’re all incredibly excited to start making new parts that fully take advantage of what this state of the art system can do!

For the past several decades, manufacturing has been thought of as a “dirty” job reserved for countries with a cheap labor market. However, we’ve found that physically separating manufacturing and consumption of goods increases cost. A new era of manufacturing is beginning, and it starts with domestic and regionalized manufacturing that utilizes new and exciting technologies in well-manicured workspaces.

Anyone who has compared traditional FDM (sometimes called Fused Filament Fabrication) to other 3D printing technologies, such as PolyJet, SLA and SLS, has definitely thought at one time or another, “This technology is both inexpensive to print and strong, but I really wish it had better resolution.” In this blog, we explore how to make FDM look as good as other technologies while remaining inexpensive and not impacting overall strength. We’ve printed a horde of Easter Island Moai to play around with the top three ways to smooth PLA parts.

When it comes to completing an engineering or design project, it can be difficult to decide on the best and most efficient approach to take. The decision to offshore, insource or outsource Rapid Prototyping Services should be determined on a project-by-project basis and by the resources available to your team. Below, we take a look at each route and discuss advantages and disadvantages of offshoring, outsourcing or insourcing.
Picture this... Your client presentation is in two weeks. You are still working on your SOLIDWORKS parts, and the slideshow your boss requested is still far from being finished. Meanwhile, your manager knocks on your door and says, “The clients would really love to see some physical prototypes this time.” You break into a cold sweat, because you’re not quite sure how to approach this one-off print. So you try to Google "RP Services," but over 95 well established providers pop up with varying degrees of experience and equipment to back it up. How can you choose which rapid prototyping partner is best for your company?
