Easter 4.0: <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing for the holidays

A clas­sic sce­nario of fam­i­ly life: mak­ing dec­o­ra­tion for fes­tive hol­i­day days. Sure­ly a nice idea, but in real­i­ty the whole thing looks like this: Child 1 lost his appetite after ten min­utes. In addi­tion to a lot of paper waste, it also leaves a few last­ing marks on the kitchen table. Mean­while, Child 2 […]

Legal issues with <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing for private and business

This brief overview of legal issues with 3D print­ing tech­nolo­gies is intend­ed to pro­vide a short glimpse for pri­vate users and busi­ness­es. For those who want to get into the detail of the top­ic, we rec­om­mend the books “Socio-Legal Aspects of the 3D Print­ing Rev­o­lu­tion” and “3D Print­ing, Intel­lec­tu­al Prop­er­ty and Inno­va­tion”. Legal issues with […]

<span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing — faster and cheaper than Amazon or shops downtown

Any­one who buys a 3D print­er knows the start time in which one prints all sort of nec­es­sary and unnec­es­sary objects. After a while this amount decreas­es and you print more prag­mat­i­cal­ly and focus on util­i­ty (the thing 3D print­ers are actu­al­ly made for). In this blog post we walk you through a prac­ti­cal 3D […]

Snap-fit parts and connectors for <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printed objects

Snap-Fit com­po­nents are a quick and easy way to con­nect two sep­a­rate­ly 3D print­ed parts togeth­er. They are a cost-effec­tive and time-sav­ing con­nec­tion method enabling you to cre­ate com­plex objects even with small 3D print­ers. In this blog post we dis­cuss the most suit­able snap-fit ​​con­nec­tions for 3D print­ing. In addi­tion, we present design prac­tices […]

<span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing in <span class=“caps”>TV</span> shows and movies

Prod­uct Place­ment as of 3D print­ing in TV shows and movies is a wide­ly used mar­ket­ing strat­e­gy. You not only present your prod­uct and your own brand via one of the most used media tools – the tele­vi­sion. In addi­tion, you visu­al­ize to your cus­tomers in which envi­ron­ments they can imag­ine and use the prod­uct. […]

Special <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing materials/filament

When buy a 3D print­er, most peo­ple con­sid­er the machines func­tion­al­i­ty as key indi­ca­tors. How big is the print vol­ume? How qual­i­ta­tive is the 3D print­er man­u­fac­tured and how qual­i­ta­tive do print results look? Does he have a dual print head (dual extrud­er)? What is the print speed? And so on… Few are aware how […]

Does a desktop <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printer pay off at home?

The broad range of pos­si­bil­i­ties a 3D print­er offers is not clear to most peo­ple. This results in the most impor­tant ques­tion of all: Does a 3D print­er at home pay off? The answer to this is “yes”, at least if you believe an Amer­i­can study. The arti­cle with the title “Emer­gence of Home Man­u­fac­tur­ing […]

Limits of desktop <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printers in business

We have already explored the pos­si­bil­i­ties and appli­ca­tions in a pre­vi­ous blog posts on our site. How­ev­er, this post focus­es on enter­prise FDM print­ers, espe­cial­ly in offices. We want to show you where the lim­i­ta­tions of desk­top 3D print­ers are and for which appli­ca­tions they per­fect­ly fit. Limits of desktop 3D printers during prototyping The […]

Flasprint Slicer expert mode for more functionality

There are many slicer pro­grams on the mar­ket that use the .stl-for­mat 3-dimen­sion­al objects. slicer trans­form the stl-file into a G-Code which is required by 3D print­ers. There are many soft­ware solu­tions on the mar­ket, both free and paid options. The advan­tages of the lat­ter are the many fea­tures and sim­ple design solu­tions. How­ev­er, do […]

How to secure qualitative <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing results around the globe?

In this blog post, we’re not talk­ing about qual­i­ty issues for desk­top 3D print­ers, but rather dis­cuss large high-per­for­mance SLS machines. These 3D print­ers pro­duce com­po­nents e.g. for air­crafts, med­i­cine etc. which all require high-qual­i­ty stan­dards. Qualitative 3D printing results around the globe We won’t dis­cuss usu­al qual­i­ty prob­lems for objects but rather a spe­cif­ic […]
