    Using Build Volume to Its Fullest Potential

    October 20, 2021

    This week's Product Story showcases Daikin and how they utilize the Stratasys F770 3D printer as the solution to two challenges.

    Daiken is considered an innovator and world-leading provider of customizable heating and air conditioning systems for residential, commercial and industrial properties. They are familiar with the use of additive manufacturing technology and knew this was where they would find the solution to both of their challenges.

    AMUG 2021 Recap – Three Key Takeaways

    May 11, 2021

    After the turbulence of 2020 and the cancellation of nearly all trade shows, conferences and in-person meetings, the Additive Manufacturing Users Group (AMUG) returned to an in-person event in Orlando, FL for the AMUG 2021 conference. Considering additive manufacturing is an industry that thrives on collaboration and training, this was a welcome relief after a year of Zoom, WebEx and GoToMeeting calls!

    A Closer Look at the Origin One 3D Printer

    May 10, 2021

    For the last 15 years Stratasys and their value-added resellers, like TriMech, had to field one reoccurring question that divided our 3D printing world into two clearly different segments. That question was, “Can I have the material performance of FDM, with the surface finish of PolyJet right out of the printer?" For so long, that answer was “no” unless you did some post-processing of the prints. Even looking into the history of Stratasys in the years before the Objet and Stratasys merger, you were mainly on one side or the other – strength or surface finish. However, this all changed with the advent of Programmable Photopolymerization (P3) technology, which is now found in the Stratasys Origin One 3D printer, and finally, we can say “yes”...

    Stratasys Expands Their Technology Offering and Why You Should Care

    May 5, 2021

    If you have kept your ear to the ground on the 3D printing front, you were bound to have heard the rumblings that Stratasys was planning to launch several new technologies this year. That rumbling turned into full quake at Stratasys’s Manufacturing Event, at the end of April, where they introduced three new platforms – effectively doubling Stratasys’s 3D printing technology offering.

    Regardless if you were seeing feeds on social media or attending the virtual launch event, the impact of this announcement will be felt across the 3D printing industry. I wanted to take a few minutes to help you understand the significance of these new technologies, as this announcement is a major leap forward in TriMech’s polymer-based 3D printing portfolio. We will review these new offerings, why they matter, and who they matter to.

    Benefits of SAF Powder Bed Fusion Technology

    March 30, 2021

    The demand for reliable and accurate production-level additive manufacturing is growing exponentially, as companies were faced with crippling supply chain issues due to scarcity of raw materials and inhibited labor forces during the Covid-19 crisis. Stratasys has answered this call by expanding their polymeric 3D printing capabilities into SLA and DLP with acquisitions of companies such as Origin and RPS, Most recently, Stratasys continues to grow, by entering into the powder based additive manufacturing market with the introduction of SAF (Selective Absorption Fusion) technology.

    How to 3D Print Carbon Fiber Materials at Any Level

    February 24, 2021

    Carbon fiber materials and carbon-reinforced polymers can replace metal for lighter, more ergonomic tooling. Add to that the power of additive manufacturing to print the part, rather than machine it, and you can significantly reduce both your part weight and tooling lead time. In this article, we are going to review the differences in printable carbon fiber materials and the machines capable of printing them to understand how the 3D printing industry has created approachable solutions for just about every level of production.

    Machinable Metals vs 3D Printed Polymers

    February 23, 2021

    As an Application Engineer with TriMech, my role often takes me into many manufacturing environments ranging from mom-and-pop machine shops to aerospace manufactures. As different as you may think these facilities would be, we often find a common trend – most custom fixtures, jigs, equipment, and assembly tools are made from aluminum. The biggest reason when asked about this is because “it's what we have always used,” and “it's what the toolroom prefers to work with.” When probed further we usually hear “aluminum is more than strong enough,” so it is chosen for a task that nowhere near approaches aluminum’s tensile strength benefits. There is a wide variety of materials out there other than aluminum that may fit some of these needs better. In this article we’re going to take a look at how printed polymers stack up against it.
