In part 1 of our two-part International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) blog, we explored the Robotic Composite 3D Demonstrator introduced at last year's event. But the multi-axis additive manufacturing robot wasn't the only technology that took crowds by storm. In part 2 of our blog series, we dive into the Infinite Build 3D Demonstrator and what this system has to offer the manufacturing technology industry.

At last year's International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago, attendees got a glimpse of several of the most innovative, emerging technologies. Out of 2,407 exhibitors, Stratasys caught all eyes and ears with the Robotic Composite 3D Demonstrator and Infinite Build 3D Demonstrator. In part 1 of our two-part blog, we explore what the 3D printing robot has to offer the manufacturing technology industry.

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.

Stratasys' PolyJet 3D printing technology is widely known for combining color and providing extreme levels of detail and realism. But what if we told you FDM materials are getting more advanced and can also provide visual appeal? In our blog, we explain how to change FDM material color and achieve that finished product appearance.
Metal 3D printing seems to be the next big thing in additive manufacturing. While it’s been around for awhile, the process is still notoriously known as an expensive choice. So companies are looking for more affordable alternatives.
