Medical Implants with the help of 3D Printing

The metal surface coatings applied to orthopedic implants allow a three-dimensional interconnected array of pores throughout the coating thickness, which in turn helps to promote bone tissue in-growth and provide long-term stability of the implant. The traditional processes used to apply these coatings including sintering and plasma spraying. The introduction of direct metal transfer (DMT)

Cutting Time & Costs of Molds with 3D Printing

Molding is the process of manufacturing by shaping liquid or flexible raw material using a rigid frame called a mold. Plastic injection molding is one of the most commonly used manufacturing processes in the world today. However, traditional molding process requires high initial tooling cost, and engineers are often limited to many design restrictions. Use

5 Easy Steps to Save 3D Printing Time

When slicing models to 3D print, we have to balance two opposing factors: the speed of a print versus the quality of the finished part. These factors are not always at odds; with advanced techniques, it is possible to reduce print time dramatically while still maintaining excellent quality. In this blog, we will be using
