Discover the latest news, tips and tricks about 3D printing. We continually analyze and test new products and materials, in order to ensure the traceability and quality of our entire catalog, sharing our conclusions and our experience.
The search for materials with low environmental impact has encouraged various initiatives and the development of new 3D printing materials, leading to the production of innovative filaments with mechanical properties that resemble those of ABS, or with representative characteristics or physical properties that differentiate them from other materials.
In recent years, the emergence of advanced resins has made 3D resin printing a viable option in many industrial and professional applications, not only in the fields of dentistry and jewellery, but also in medicine.
Resin 3D printers have been gaining popularity in recent years thanks to the emergence of new technologies that have reduced their cost and increased printing speed. Today there are three main technologies: SLA, DLP and LED-LCD. In this post we will explain what each one consists of and which are its advantages and disadvantages.
Tomas Feřtek, a research engineer at the Institute of Geology, has used 3D printing to produce mechanical sensor mounts, sensor bodies, and motors for high-pressure chambers; using Fillamentum Nylon AF80 filament.
Many users of 3D printing with FDM technology have asked this question at some point.
Most desktop FDM 3D printers have only one extruder, so the user "loses" the option of combining several filaments; for example when printing complex parts using one construction filament and one support filament or in case the part requires to integrate several colors.
3D printed fashion ranges from dresses to accessories to shoes. 3D printing has been a before and after in the fashion industry; and its application has been increasing in recent years. 3D modeling and additive manufacturing have brought numerous advantages to the creative process, being used for both prototyping and final part production.
Jewelry making has always been a traditional process, supported by different technological advances. To date, no technological advance has had as much impact on the jewelry industry as 3D printing or additive manufacturing.
