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.
Currently there are several hotel options on the market, as well as different spare parts and accessories for each of them. With so many options, it can be difficult to select and configure the most suitable option for each user or application. In this post we explain what a hotend consists of and how to select the most suitable one.
In general, most people start in the world of 3D printing through low-end economic printers. Despite the fact that some of these printers are good value for money, they have certain limitations, especially when using more advanced or technical materials. In this post we tell you how to improve these printers in order to give them advanced use and continue to delve into the world of 3D printing.
Two of the most important components of a FDM 3D printer are the extruder and the hotend. There are two types of FDM 3D printers depending on how these two elements are located: Direct extrusion systems and Bowden systems. In this article we explain what each one consists of and how to decide which is the ideal for each user.
Since its launch on the market, the Sinterit Lisa 3D printer has been a great revolution, becoming a viable option for many companies that, like Eceleni, a service-bureau specialized in the production of prototypes, have opted for the application of SLS technology. . Eloy Bautista, its Technical Director, tells us about his experience.
Although the best known 3D printing technology is FDM, in recent years SLA and SLS technologies have also become popular. The appearance of affordable desktop format equipment, such as those produced by Sinterit or Formlabs, has made the criteria for choosing one technology or the other to be mainly technical and not so much economic.
