HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Shorten Time to Market – Part 4

By |2019-08-01T08:28:14-04:00August 2nd, 2019|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology|0 Comments

Scaling to Production in Rapid Prototyping This is the final segment in our Rapid Prototyping series and here we will talk about scaling to production. When creating a new product, there are often two sets of designs: One set is for 3D printing prototypes while the other is for producing the part. However, most designers only think in terms of the latter. “When you’re developing a product, at each moment of the design, it is a final part,” said Gabriel Boutin, CEO of Syncro Innovation, an industrial design firm in Quebec, Canada, and the founder of Kupol, a new company [...]

Sand Casting

By |2019-07-31T08:17:31-04:00July 31st, 2019|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg|0 Comments

This article is a reprint from the Formlabs blog.  In the last segment of this casting basics, we will discuss sand casting. In the sand casting process, a foundry worker fills containers known as mold boxes or flasks with a mixture of sand and binder, then packs sand around the pattern. The pattern is removed to leave a negative impression of the pattern behind, and molten metal is poured into the cavity. An open-faced mold may be used for parts with features on a single side. Parts with features on multiple surfaces require closed cavity molds, with upper and lower [...]

Mastercam 2020 Analyze Entity Association

By |2019-07-29T08:27:45-04:00July 29th, 2019|Categories: Mastercam, Tech Tips|0 Comments

There is a new feature inside of the Analyze Entities function in Mastercam 2020 that makes it easier to figure out associations between geometry and toolpath. This new feature makes it easy to check to see how and where geometry is being used. To illustrate, we are going to use a file that has many toolpaths and multiple machines. Most of the work has been programmed for a milling machine, however, there are two features that cannot be milled out. These would have to be completed with wire EDM. When we begin to analyze some geometry using the icon shown [...]

HP Jet Fusion 3D Printing Shortens Time to Market – Part 3

By |2019-07-24T08:48:00-04:00July 26th, 2019|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, HP Multi Jet Fusion Technology|0 Comments

Last week we discussed the “value of functional prototypes” in rapid prototyping and today we are going to continue with a discussion about the color capabilities of the HP Jet Fusion technology. Color Capabilities of HP Jet Fusion Technology There are many ways to improve the value of a prototype, but one that is often overlooked is the addition of color. With the HP Jet Fusion 580/380 Color 3D Printers, it is now possible to print fully functional, color 3D parts. Adding color to prototypes is one way to test final part colors, but there are other ways to use [...]

Indirect Investment Casting

By |2019-07-24T08:36:00-04:00July 24th, 2019|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg|0 Comments

This article is a reprint from the Formlabs blog.  So far we’ve covered some metal casting basics, as well as direct investment casting in our blog series on casting. Today we are moving to indirect investment casting. The process of making patterns from molds or tooling is referred to as indirect investment casting because it requires creating molds for producing the patterns in addition to final investment molds. Rigid molds for wax (often referred to as tools) are commonly fabricated by machining aluminum or steel. Machined metal molds cost thousands of dollars to produce and take weeks of machining and [...]
