3D Additive White Papers, Case Studies, & Application Notes

  1. Sensor Fusion Enables Comprehensive Analysis Of Laser Processing In Additive Manufacturing
    6/5/2017

    This white paper discusses sensor fusion, a process that merges data from numerous sensors to create a more complete understanding of the laser-enabled process.

  2. Assessing Infrared Spectrum Hyperpixel Array Imagers For Measuring Temperature In Additive And Subtractive Manufacturing
    4/13/2017

    This white paper discusses the use of infrared spectrum hyperpixel array imagers in additive and subtractive manufacturing temperature measurement, the issues that are involved, and the results of multiple analyses on the method.

  3. Selecting The Right Material For 3D Printing
    6/23/2016

    The materials used in 3D printing have improved to allow the technology to move beyond models and prototypes to functional parts for testing, shop floor use and production.

  4. Choosing The Right Rapid Prototype Source For Device Development
    5/17/2016

    Successful prototyping begins with mechanical design that will operate properly when assembled and will be scalable for volume manufacturing. A working prototype can be a smooth progression if you employ the right resources and processes.

  5. Micromolding And 3D-Printing: Process Review
    8/17/2015

    Products with micro-sized features can exist on the surface of miniature and micro-sized parts, as well as be produced in abundance by using micromolding. Micromolding technology is effective, repeatable, durable, and cost effective for many production applications.

  6. Sterilization Of 3D Printed Medical Devices
    7/21/2015

    Fused Deposition Modeling™ (FDM® ) can be used to produce an array of medical devices; however, for such devices to be practical, they must be manufactured using sterilizable materials.
