    Recently, a 3D printed house went on sale in New York, first of its kind. Pretty remarkable, but it’s still considered a novelty and must overcome several barriers before successful market adoption.

    The additive manufacturing industry is advancing at an incredible pace and technology improvements, material capabilities, use cases, competitors and adoption are at an all-time high with no signs of slowing.

    What Type of Metal 3D Printing is Best for You?

    Markforged on Oct 26, 2021 11:30:00 AM

    Metal powder is the backbone of metal 3D printing. Though it’s difficult and dangerous to handle in its raw state, its unique features make it the preferred metal stock type. The vast majority of metal 3D printing technologies utilize metal powder. As a result, the major differences between types of metal printers relate to how they fuse the powder into metal parts. These methods vary greatly, ranging from using high energy lasers to fuse loose powder to extruding bound metal powder filament. In this article, we’ll take a look at the most heavily used types of metal 3D printing, how they work, and why they’re beneficial.

    3D printing as an industry has drastically changed over the last 40 years. What started as a groundbreaking new technology with very few scalable applications has over time grown into the present day additive manufacturing landscape. Lost are the years of enormous, expensive, and dangerous machines of the 80s, which have since been replaced by powerful desktop printers, not much bigger than a standard office fax machine.

    How to Create High Quality STL Files for 3D Prints

    Markforged on Sep 14, 2021 11:30:00 AM

    Have you ever 3D printed a part that had flat spots or faceted surfaces where smooth curves were supposed to be? Or maybe you’ve just seen a picture of a 3D print that looked like it belonged in some low-resolution CGI from the 90’s? You are not alone, and it’s not your 3D printer’s fault — the culprit is likely a lack of resolution in the STL file that was used to create the part!

    The 3 Greatest Benefits of 3D Printing Metal Parts

    Markforged on Jul 6, 2021 11:30:00 AM

    0 comments

    The ability to additively manufacture near net shape parts has long been a holy grail of manufacturing. As a result, Metal 3D printing (the technology that seems likely to deliver on that promise), has carried an immense amount of “hype.” The blind excitement for the process largely overshadow the actual benefits of metal 3D printing, which paint the picture of a unique fabrication method that can specifically add value to the manufacturing process in a few key ways.
