Designers and engineers frequently need to modify, improve, complete, and edit STL files for 3D printing. Modern software for working with triangle meshes, or as its creators like to refer to it, the “Swiss Army Knife” for editing STL files and 3D meshes, is Autodesk’s Meshmixer. With Meshmixer, it’s possible to resculpt entire sections, stylize the model, or add useful features in addition to optimizing triangle meshes. The good news is… MeshMixer is totally free to download. This manual outlines 10 expert suggestions for novice and experienced users to enable designers to modify their 3D models with this flexible software.…

What your 3D printer can create is incredible. But we’ve all experienced those frustrating situations where a seemingly straightforward model won’t print correctly despite everything. While 3D printing, we’ve experienced a lot of print failures. With that in mind, we wanted to create the most comprehensive manual for identifying and resolving common 3D printing issues, embracing FDM and SLA technology. This guide was directly inspired by our experience troubleshooting 3D printers. SLA 3D printing is also susceptible to its unique set of printing problems. Hence, problems with warped prints, print bed adhesion, layer shift, and other 3D printing errors are…

Since it has been obvious that additive manufacturing technologies are the future of manufacturing, more and more businesses are deciding to place bets on them. When we discuss 3D technologies, we don’t just mean prototypes; we also mean high-quality final products. Its adoption enables production to evolve while cutting costs and manufacturing times. Despite this, there are still questions regarding the factors that should be considered when purchasing an industrial 3D printer. Notably, users must ask questions like, What needs to be considered? Do the materials matter? Today, we’ll respond to a few of these. We will concentrate on fused…

The Ender 3 is currently the most well-liked 3D printer design worldwide. It has become the most well-known 3D printer of its time because of its affordable price for beginners and its upgradeable features. Due to demand, Creality upgraded various aspects of their 3D printer, including the bed size. Ender 3 has been available in ten different versions since the beginning. This article will look at how Ender 3 changed over time and how the size of the printer bed changed. However, beginners using the Ender 3 frequently consider the Ender 3 bed size. What maximum size can the 3D…

You can make Incredibly durable parts with Nylon 3D printing. However, using it can be challenging! Read this article to learn more. When subjected to static loads, the most popular type of 3D printing filament, PLA, is reasonably strong. However, it becomes brittle and loses its strength when exposed to 60°C and lower. Although much more robust than injection molded parts, ABS, the second most popular type of 3D printing filament, is still not frequently used for intricate functional parts. Nylon is a high-performance substance that can be used to print highly robust components that are strong enough to be…

Meat has always been a vital component of meals in all cultures regarding our diets. The US consumes meat at the second-highest rate in the world.  The consumption of red meat and poultry per capita is anticipated to decline in 2022, though this trend has already begun. Additionally, the growing demand for meat and fish substitutes shows that society’s consumption patterns are changing. Revo Foods, an Austrian business that uses 3D printing to create premium plant-based seafood, has been covered by us in the past. It was the first to introduce salmon and tuna that were printed in 3D. The…

When looking around for FDM printers, you’ll most likely run across the terms Direct Drive and Bowden. The basic principle is the same – using an extruder to push filament through a heated nozzle – the difference is where that extruder is located. A direct extrusion system pushes the filament into the hot end by mounting the extruder on the printhead. In contrast, a Bowden system typically has the extruder mounted on the printer’s frame. To get to the printhead, the filament, therefore, passes through a PTFE tube. Although the results of both setups are the same, the different designs…

Food design and printing with 3D printers is a young but developing field. Quince Market Insights projects that between now and 2030, the global market for 3D printed food will grow at a CAGR of roughly 48%. 3D printed food is produced using conventional 3D printers and soft, eatable materials that can be extruded through a nozzle. The printer deposits food material layer by layer on a computer-generated model to create a final three-dimensional entree. Food researchers must experiment with ingredient formulations and material characteristics like viscosity to achieve the desired structure, flavor, and texture. The advantages and disadvantages of…

A typical slicer mode for “aesthetic prints” is vase mode. Follow along as we explain how to make some seamless models using Cura Vase Mode. Ultimaker’s Cura continues to be the preferred option among the multiple slicers on the market today. It has several useful features and is free and generally simple to use. One of these features is “Spiralize Outer Contour” in Cura, commonly known as “vase mode.” In this mode, a 3D printer uses a single, continuous line to print only the outermost surfaces of your model (in the horizontal directions). Vase mode cannot be used for all…
