5 Mistakes to Avoid When Designing a 3D Model for 3D Printing

5 Mistakes to Avoid When Designing a 3D Model for 3D Printing

We know that modeling for 3D printing can be confusing: in 3D modeling, as in 3D printing, there is no one size fits all approach. We all use different software, print in different materials, and not only use different printers but also different printing technologies. So it’s perfectly normal to feel lost and it can sometimes seem difficult to design a perfect 3D model for 3D printing.

That’s why we’ve put together the ultimate list of mistakes to avoid when turning a 3D model into a 3D print.

How 3D Printing in Polyamide (MJF) Really Works

How 3D Printing in Polyamide (MJF) Really Works

A few months ago we were glad to welcome a new member to our family of 3D printing materials and technologies: Multi Jet Fusion, the new 3D printing technology from HP, in Polyamide (MJF).

Since then, many of our customers have tried this new technology and have enjoyed its advantages, but today we wanted to explain more in depth how 3D printing in Polyamide (MJF) works, as well as digging into the differences between our 3D printing polyamides. (more…)
