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”.

Top 5 <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printers in 2018

Like every year, we present our Top 5 3D print­ers in 2018. Actu­al­ly, it is a list of our favorite 3D print­ers for 5 print­er cat­e­gories. We con­sid­ered many fac­tors like price, func­tion­al­i­ty and qual­i­ty of each 3D print­er. Our top 5 3D printers in 2018 are presented in an ascending price order: For those […]

<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 e.g. 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 […]

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 […]

View layers of <span class=“caps”>3D</span> models in Flashprint Slicer

In addi­tion to the nec­es­sary hard­ware and machin­ery for 3D print­ing, soft­ware pro­grams also play an essen­tial role. A 3D print­er is not usable with­out the nec­es­sary move­ments guide­lines com­mu­ni­cat­ed by the slicer. Slicer soft­ware sup­ports the user by con­vert­ing 3‑dimensional objects into a G‑code that devices can read. These pro­grams are not suit­able to […]

Top 5 <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printing technologies in the future

The addi­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing process already offers a futur­is­tic pro­duc­tion today. Espe­cial­ly indus­tri­al machines are already suit­able for ser­i­al pro­duc­tion or mul­ti-col­or print­ing of objects. In this blog post we would like to dis­cuss 5 3D print­ing tech­nolo­gies in the future that will dri­ve and rev­o­lu­tion­ize the use of addi­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing.
