How to maintain the biocompatibility of a material when processing it

There are numerous certified biocompatible 3D printing materials, especially resins, available on the market. But the certified biocompatibility of a material does not mean a 3D printed piece will have the same properties. To ensure certified biocompatibility of the end product, contamination must be avoided by using specialized equipment, and the adequate certifications must be obtained the manufacturer.

3D printing technologies in education, fundamentals and advantages of each one.

Printing 3D models develops skills that involve students in the process, getting them to adapt to change and to solve mistakes. In this way, learning is not only based on observation, but learning by printing files that you create yourself. There are different types of 3D printing technologies and depending on the needs of the students, some will be more suitable than others.

Extrusion systems. Adjustments and maintenance.

The extruder is the element responsible for pulling the filament into the hotend in such a way that sufficient pressure is generated inside the hotend so that the molten material flows constantly and homogeneously through the nozzle. This post shows the different types of extrusion as well as how to correctly adjust and maintain the extrusion system to avoid problems.

Positioning in SLS 3D printing

In SLS 3D printing, the position of the part influences the quality of the part. For best results, completely overlapping layers with large interconnected surfaces should be avoided. Openings and details should be oriented upwards, moving parts in the XY plane, flat surfaces and solid blocks at 45° in all axes to avoid heat build-up.
