Design for Additive Manufacturing: Internal Features and Channels

By |2021-04-14T08:33:48-04:00April 14th, 2021|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, Desktop Metal|0 Comments

Additive manufacturing is rapidly rewriting the rules of how metal parts are made, and it’s doing it with the help of a new design language - Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM). Developed to take advantage of the enormous design freedom that comes with 3D printing, DfAM allows manufacturers to unlock a host of benefits - from highly complex geometry to the use of generative design tools to the ability to create internal features and channels [...]

Tooling-free Manufacturing with Desktop Metal

By |2021-03-24T08:19:22-04:00March 24th, 2021|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, Desktop Metal|0 Comments

Without the need to manufacture jigs, fixtures, or molds, engineers and designers can go from design to functional part in as little as a day. If needed, designers can print multiple versions of a part, then quickly iterate on the design based on functional testing results. The speed and accessibility of additive manufacturing allows design teams to go through dozens of design iterations in as little as a week. Once part designs are finalized, binder [...]

Manufacturing Tooling with Desktop Metal

By |2020-12-02T08:12:14-05:00December 2nd, 2020|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, Desktop Metal|0 Comments

About manufacturing tooling Tooling is a general term for components used in various manufacturing processes—including machining, injection molding, extrusion, stamping, casting, as well as workholding jigs, fixtures, and end of arm tooling. A single tooling mechanism may consist of several complex parts or one unique part. Tooling is used widely across all manufacturing processes. Though often created in-house by manufacturers, tooling may be outsourced to a specialty tooling shop when complexity or lead time exceeds [...]

How Innovative Plastics Is Using Desktop Metal 3D Printing

By |2020-09-16T08:34:13-04:00September 16th, 2020|Categories: 3D Printing / Additive Mfg, Desktop Metal|0 Comments

Using the Studio System by Desktop Metal, Innovative Plastics created mold cavities and cores in far less time - and at significantly less cost - than traditional methods. In addition, the company was able to incorporate features like internal channels into the molds, reducing molding cycle time and increasing their productivity. The most common manufacturing method for plastic parts, injection molding works by forcing melted plastic into a mold under pressure. Within seconds, the plastic [...]
