Working with metal materials for additive manufacturing

Perhaps more than any other manufacturing process, additive manufacturing works best when you match the material to the right additive process. Some of the challenges, though, are: –many additive processes suggest proprietary versions of materials — plus these materials often do not have sufficiently available documentation on their performance after undergoing an additive process –the […]

3D printing delivers orthotics and prosthetics in one day

Here’s the typical way a prosthesis is made: First you wrap fiberglass tapes around a patient’s limb. The tapes harden into a mold, which is then filled with plaster to make a model of the limb. Next, heated plastic is formed around the mode. The device is then hand-finished by smoothing the edges and attaching […]
