Having a better understanding about industrial 3D printing processes, materials, and design concerns can help minimize risk and questions during early prototyping. 3D printing produces plastic parts in various materials and with multiple additive manufacturing methods that each have their own benefits. We will cover the 3D printing processes used by today’s designers and engineers, the materials those processes offer, and important considerations that should be accounted for during design and production.
You will learn:
- Differences between industrial 3D printing technologies
- Material options
- Key benefits and applications
- Critical design considerations
