Star Rapid’s CEO Jon Ross offers some insights on 3D printing and its ability to encourage people of all ages to get involved in the joy of making things again.
2017 has seen a continuation of the trend in adopting 3D metal printing for demanding industrial applications. This has been especially true in the fields of aerospace, automotive and medical applications, but will undoubtedly disrupt other sectors as this transformative technology becomes more mature and better understood by product designers, engineers and manufacturers.
3D printing continues to evolve as one potential solution for making rapid prototype plastic injection mold tooling. There are some limitations to this process and its application and Gordon Styles explain them during an interview with Digital Engineering Magazine.
Last week our founder and president Gordon Styles was a guest on Leslie Langnau’s MakePartsFast podcast. In the interview he discussed designing for plastic injection molding as well as 3D printed conformal cooling cores.
For prototypes and low-volume production, one of the ways to ensure quick turnaround on your parts is by keeping designs simple and not over-engineering them
