    Industrial 3D Printing
    Most Common Questions

Thinking about 3D printing (AKA additive manufacturing) and how it could benefit your business? You’re not alone. Companies in many industries are already leveraging the unique benefits of additive to improve product development and streamline manufacturing.

Whether you’re looking to develop a comprehensive strategy or just want to experiment with metal and/or polymer 3D printing, you need to start with the basics. In this webinar series we will discuss:

  • What is 3D printing / additive manufacturing, and how does it work?
  • What are the main 3D printing technologies and how do they differ?
  • What are the advantage and benefits, as well as the main challenges and limitations?
  • What industries are using AM and what applications are they printing?
  • When does it make sense to use polymer or metal 3D printing instead of other manufacturing technologies?
  • Where do you start and how do you get into 3D printing?

Polymer 3D Printing 10 Most Common Questions

New capabilities are helping AM increase its foothold, not only with prototyping, but also with end-use parts. This is especially true with polymers, where several technologies and a wide variety of materials are now available. But hardware is only part of the equation. To deliver maximum value, comprehensive solutions also require software, processes and expertise.

In this webinar, we will address some of the top questions related to polymer 3D printing, including:

    • What are the different technologies, and how do they differ?
    • What materials are available and how do they perform?
    • When does it make sense to use polymer 3D printing instead of other manufacturing methods?
    • What size parts can be printed, and what kind of quality can be achieved?
    • Is it necessary to optimize a part’s design for AM?
    • What other tools and capabilities are essential to get from start to part?

Metal 3D Printing 10 Most Common Questions

AM offers several benefits over traditional manufacturing technologies. Because it relies on a digital workflow, it empowers engineers with new design freedom, helping them create parts that are lighter, stronger and more functional than before. AM also enables customization and offers a speed-to-market advantage other solutions can’t match. Metal 3D printing helps companies extend those benefits to a wider range of parts, which can drastically improve the overall quality and performance of their products.

In this new webinar, we will address some of the top questions related to metal 3D printing, including:

    • What are the various methods for 3D printing metals?
    • What materials are available and how do they perform?
    • When does it make sense to use metal 3D printing instead of other manufacturing methods?
    • What size parts can be printed, and what kind of quality can be achieved?
    • Is it necessary to optimize a part’s design for AM?
    • How does metal 3D printing help with lightweighting?
    • What other tools and capabilities are essential to get from start to part?
