With today’s increase in complexity for engineered products and the need for faster production of these products, manufacturers are having to choose between technologies. This ebook will discuss and compare two of the methods used to produce parts, while recognizing that each has its place, and can complement each other in the design and manufacturing workflow.
This buyer’s guide serves as a source of information for engineers looking to add a 3D printer to their manufacturing process. The guide will concentrate on printers and printing technologies best suited for manufacturing applications.
As the 3D printing market is moving at an increasingly faster pace, it is hard to keep track of developments and the driving forces. But many of these may be crucial and may disrupt markets, technology use and business models in the years to come.
This guide walks you through the key design considerations for metal 3D printing to help you successfully print parts on the Markforged Metal X 3D printer. The Metal X utilizes the Bound Powder Extrusion (BPE) printing process, where metal powder is bound together in waxy polymers and is delivered in filament form and extruded, similar
For many companies looking in to metal 3D printing, using loose powder material is out of the question. The Markforged Metal X process combines metal injection molding (MIM) and fused filament fabrication (FFF) technologies together into Bound Powder Extrusion. BPE provides a simple, cost effective way to create metal parts.
The ability to additively manufacture near net shape parts has long been a holy grail of manufacturing. As a result, metal 3D printing has carried an immense amount of hype. The blind excitement for the process largely overshadow the actual benefits of metal 3D printing, which paint the picture of a unique fabrication method that
Design for 3D printing is often overlooked, but it is very different from designing for traditional manufacturing. This guide walks you through the key considerations of design success with 3D printing plastics, composites and fiber reinforced materials.
Both high-strength composite 3D printing and metal 3D printing are valuable fabrication methods. Used separately, they address a broad spectrum of manufacturing use cases. Together, they enhance each other and provide clever solutions. In this ebook, we will discuss several ways in which you can leverage these complementary technologies from the 3D printer developer Markforged
This ebook outlines the evolution of 3D printing into digital moulding, explains how it works, details benefits for manufacturers and shows business drivers for the technology. Cost and time savings claims are documented by benchmarks that demonstrate the performance of digital moulding versus traditional injection moulding.
Virtual prototyping is cutting product development cycles and allowing manufacturers to bring better products to market, faster than ever before. And the best news of all? The tools are no longer exclusively available to large manufacturers with deep pockets. In this eBook you will get an introduction to the benefits of virtual prototyping.
