<span class=“caps”>ABS</span> vs <span class=“caps”>PLA</span>: Are plastic fumes from <span class=“caps”>3D</span> printers harmful?

3D print­ers pro­duce plas­tic fumes by melt­ing the mate­r­i­al (fil­a­ment) for the print­ing process. The smell is very dis­tinc­tive and spreads across entire rooms and floors. How­ev­er, the fumes are not vis­i­ble, since the fil­a­ment is burned but rather heat­ed. At least this is how it should be 😉 So the ques­tion is whether these […]

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 […]

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 […]

<span class=“caps”>3D</span> printers with proprietary filament – what to do now?

This aspect of 3D print­ers is one which most do not con­sid­er when buy­ing their first device. The idea of 3D print­ers with pro­pri­etary fil­a­ment have been copied by man­u­fac­tur­ers from suc­cess­ful tech giants. Com­pa­nies such as Apple gen­er­ate large rev­enues, because entire prod­uct spec­trums and soft­ware solu­tions are only avail­able with­in their own ecosys­tem. The […]
