PLM Group’s partner Markforged announced the release of new Simulation features for its additive manufacturing software. Simulation is available as a free trial until April 2023, and the company expects to make the feature accessible through a paid subscription thereafter. Incorporating 3D printing into tooling and end-use applications requires confidence in part strength. By replacing
3D printing has proved itself to be a great tool for innovation, prototyping and low volume end-use parts. Our partner, Materialise, designed a brilliant gadget for a no-hands door opener and shared the design files with the world. Anyone can now 3D print their own door opener to minimize the spreading of germs and viruses.
Did you know that you can incorporate things like electronics, batteries, magnets etc. using the Markforged composite printers? Here’s a step by step guide from PLM Group’s 3D printing expert Stian Mork on how to 3D printing a clip with living hinges and adding magnetic inserts. 1. First off, we need to design our clip.
