MIT introduces 3D printing with glass
When it comes to 3D printing, all eyes are directed to the machine performances and the development of new materials. It’s just the way it is, and we understand why. The more you can do with 3D printing the more people will see it a a viable way to produce objects in their everyday life. That being said, some materials are not that easy to print. For instance, glass was a tough one to reach. Until now. Last Friday, researchers... Read More
3D Printing Uses : functional parts
An area of additive manufacturing showing a lot of promise is integrated assemblies; imagine reducing the print time of your objects simply by integrating an assembly plan into your 3D model before printing, this will reduce the items you need to print and save you time in the print process. As I explained in my previous posts, 3D printing is often (not in every case though) more expensive than traditional manufacturing when you’re... Read More
