How to Fabricate Moving Part Assemblies in 3D Printing?

Conventionally, for moving part assemblies, the individual parts are fabricated separately and are later assembled together. But in 3D printing, with little consideration, the entire assembly can be fabricated in one single go.   There are technologies in 3D printing...
Why do Holes And Cavities Come Cut Undersized in 3D Printing?

Why do Holes And Cavities Come Cut Undersized in 3D Printing?

It’s been a common complain that, although the part geometries have a near-net shape, some of the part features like holes and cavities are compromised at times. It’s been an observed trait in 3D printing that the holes oriented vertically (Z) w.r.t to the laser...

Staircase Effect: How To Avoid it & Ensure Part Quality

STAIRCASE EFFECT Staircase effect is omnipresent in 3D printing irrespective of the technology chosen. 3D printing is a manufacturing technology where parts are fabricated layer by layer, thus layers form an integral part of the process. Staircase effect is a...
