Check Out Our New 3D Printing Guide

October 30, 2019

We’re always trying to improve and update our public resources on 3D printing. As quickly as the technologies are evolving, it can sometimes seem impossible to keep up. That’s why we recently published our Complete Guide to 3D Printing.


Our goal with this guide was to make the most up-to-date and comprehensive resource available on 3D printers, materials, design principles, and 3D printing’s place in modern manufacturing supply chains.

In it, you will find detailed descriptions of all 3D printing technologies on the market as well as comparisons with other types of manufacturing like machining and injection molding.

3D printing has come a long way from its origins as a technology primarily oriented toward prototyping. New plastic and metal 3D printing processes like HP’s Multi Jet Fusion and ExOne’s direct material printing allow us to quickly produce low- to medium-volume production runs of industrial-strength parts in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost of traditional manufacturing.

When it comes to 3D printing, the manufacturing world is only just beginning to explore what is possible. To learn more about how design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) is reshaping modern industry, check out our design for additive manufacturing guide.

By providing more information on 3D printing, we hope to enable the next generation of innovation to continue to push our understanding of what is possible with these technologies.

If you have any questions or things you’d like to see included in future guides, leave a comment or get in touch with us directly. We love to hear from you!
