Formlabs spun off from the MIT Media Lab in 2011 to develop a high quality, low cost 3D printer that enables designers and engineers to create 3D forms with the touch of a button. Stay updated with the latest 3D printing news, including interviews with makers from around the world and tutorials on how to make better 3D models.
Learn the basics of CMF and industry standards for color and finish with some examples of how product development teams take advantage of 3D printing for representing CMF in user testing, or to ensure the final hand-off to the manufacturer leaves nothing to chance.
Learn how and why the Neosensory team developed a workflow that combined 3D printing and RTV molding to produce durable, highly polished prototypes for user testing wearable haptics devices before dialing in the final product specification.
Read on for an introduction to food safety, food safety considerations for 3D printing, and a variety of methods to produce food safe products with common 3D printing technologies, including stereolithography (SLA), fused deposition modeling (FDM), and selective laser sintering (SLS).
With such a wide range of product options, it can be difficult to choose the scanner that’s right for your application and budget. In this post, we explore several of the most important factors to consider when purchasing a 3D scanner.
This episode of the Digital Factory Podcast features a wide-ranging conversation between Jeff and Jon Bruner about digital transformation in manufacturing. In his investing, Jeff focuses on what he calls the “Four A’s:” artificial intelligence, automation, analytics, and additive manufacturing.
