What are the best methods for rapidly prototyping products as a startup?

Use the tools you are best at to create something visual. Without a picture, communicating your vision will be next to impossible... and it's absolutely essential that you share that vision with those you hope to fund your idea, build your idea, protect your idea, etc. 3d printing in automotive indu...

How durable are objects made with a 3D printer?

3D printed thermoplastics are generally between 50% and 80% as strong as the same polymer when injection molded and no more vulnerable to light, heat, or chemicals than the injection molded version. Because of the way 3D printing works, a thermoplastic object (as opposed to the material itself) can ...

What types of materials are available for 3D printing?

The complete answer is it depends on what 3D printing technology you are using. A rough breakdown of material to technology (in order of increasing machine cost) is: FDM/FFF - Plastics ( ABS , PLA , PVA , HIPS , ninjaflex , nylon , t-glase , PC , Carbon Fiber PLA , Conductive PLA , magnatic iron pla...

Are there different types of resin for 3D printing?

The Technology: Stereolithography Stereolithography, the mother of all 3D printing technologies , has been around at Materialise since 1990. It is one of the most widely used 3D printing technologies for plastic 3D models. Instead of using powder or filament, Stereolithography technology uses a liqu...

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) vs Stereolithography (SLA)

Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) vs Stereolithography (SLA) http://bergenprototype.no/w/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/fdm-vs-sla.jpg FDM is the abbreviation for Fused Deposition Modeling(fdm) . In FDM, material (in this case: thermoplastics) is deposited in layers to create a 3D printed object. During p...

What are the materials used for 3D printing?

On the desktop it is mainly PLA followed by ABS. Nylon. Other 3d printin materials such as Colorfabs Bronzefill are becoming popular. Stereolithography (SLA) resins are popular in prototyping and mold making. These photopolymers are also used for Objet, Envisiontec and Formlabs systems. Polyamide ma...

Re: Trouble with extruded filament accumulating on nozzle

1. It depends on the tape you're using. Not every painting tape works - even if it is a blue one ;-) . 2. The same with hairspray. Most of them don't work. So use another tape (or makerbots blue tape) or e.g. "Garnier fructis style ultra strong" hairspray. 3. After such a "mess" ...

Re: Feedback on N2 plus dual

I haven't tried super high temperatures, but if you do that, I know it will start degrading the print quality very quickly due to the oozing when you slow the extruder down for corners, or when you retract. But I will run a few tests when I get a chance and post the pictures.

Re: Advice on dual extruder printing?

Whether or not you choose to buy a multiple extruder printer really depends on the complexity of what you intend to print. If what you're printing is really simple, a single extruder may be just enough for your needs. Likewise, if you require highly detailed color prints and still plan to paint or f...
