THE COMPLETE GUIDE TO 3D PRINTING

3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is an umbrella term for manufacturing technologies that can generate parts by growing them out of base material. This differs from subtractive manufacturing, such as CNC machining, where a bulk material is reduced to its final shape through cutting or forming. 3D printing is a powerful tool for generating custom parts, often with complex geometries, and serves industries from aerospace & defense, to automotive, to medical and dental, and beyond. This guide outlines 3D printing, its basics, getting started, and the top commercial 3D printing processes and materials used today.

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING MES SOFTWARE: ​THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE

Successfully establishing a scalable and connected additive manufacturing process is a challenge that the vast majority of manufacturers will face. Issues around traceability, connectivity and standardisation remain barriers for companies wanting to make the transition to using AM for production. To overcome these challenges, manufacturers need greater traceability across their operations and a more connected AM workflow. Fortunately, Additive Manufacturing Execution Systems (Additive MES) are helping to tackle these issues by providing manufacturers with the tools to manage their AM processes efficiently, scale up their operations and achieve full traceability. This whitepaper is your guide to using Additive MES software to take your additive manufacturing operations to the next level.

TRENDS REPORT: ANNUAL ADDITIVE POST-PRINTING SURVEY

PostProcess Technologies, in collaboration with the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME), has conducted the first-ever Additive Manufacturing Post-Printing Survey in 2019. This report will give you an in-depth look from the end-user perspective of common practices and challenges in 3D Post-Printing, also known as Post-Processing. Data from the survey of industry participants have been tabulated and summarized with key highlights and insights now published in a first-of-its-kind comprehensive report, exclusively available here.

FIVE DESIGN TIPS OF LASER WIRE 3D PRINTING

In the paper, ADDere addresses some of the more important aspects to consider, from beginning the design phase into using the systems for production. Knowing what’s possible and the best practices for the process reduces surprises and ensures success. It also opens an array of opportunities where the large-scale additive system can really make an impact in the production process.
