When evaluating in-house 3D printing technology, it’s important to evaluate four considerations: setting up a print file, print process mechanism, post-processing, and maintenance and scalability.
In this webinar, you’ll gain the foundation you need to start speaking the language of 3D printing. Learn how parts created from various printing technologies differ across functionality and appearance, and how these differences impact product development and production workflows for engineers and manufacturers.
What you will learn:
- Where the true value in 3D printing ultimately lies and what you should be focusing on.
- Pros and cons of the print process mechanisms between four 3D printing technologies. They include fused deposition modeling (FDM), selective laser sintering (SLS), digital light polymerization (DLP), and stereolithography (SLA).
- Compare the time it takes for printing, cleaning up, curing, and removing support of parts between technologies.
- The hidden knowledge it takes to maintain a printer and the costs for expanding.
