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
What’s the best surface finish for your part? The answer to that question depends on having a clear understanding not only of what the product is expected to do but also the environment in which it will function.
What does it take to employ world-class quality standards when running your own business out of China?
All manufacturers need design drawings of one kind or another to make a finished part from metal or plastic, and that usually means a computer-generated CAD file. But many product developers may not know how those files are used on the shop floor. Here is what you need to know from a manufacturer’s point of […]
