Best Way To Learn Autodesk Fusion 360

cadcamstuff.com

My hero, Tony Robbins said: “You can only learn by connecting something unknown to something you already know.”. Trying to learn a new CAD/CAM software can be painful, especially if you have no idea where to find someone to connect the unknown to the known. Now, there is a place for Fusion 360 users to close the gap between the unknown and known… The Getting Started Portal: [link]. I can still remember that Saturday afternoon in 2007.

Laser Institute’s LAM Workshop Explores State of the Art in Additive Manufacturing

3D Printer

Lasers are an integral part of many 3D Printing processes, making it a natural fit that the Laser Institute of America [LIA] annually produces the Laser Additive Manufacturing [LAM] Workshop. This year, on February 21 and 22, 2017 laser gurus will gather in Houston, Texas to explore advanced additive manufacturing technologies and their applications, as well as all that is required to produce parts in this new digital fabrication world. LAM is not a meeting filled with hype.

Working with plastics in 3D printing

Leslie's Blog

Plastics, whether in powder, filament, or pellet form, are one of the main material types used in 3D printing/ additive manufacturing (3DP/AM). As 3DP/AM matures, developers continue to explore plastic chemistries and capabilities to offer materials that rival more traditional versions. For example, polypropylene and ABS can have higher tensile strength than traditional injection-molded plastics.

Make a DIY Waterjet Cutter From a Cheap Pressure Cleaner

DIY 3D Printing

In my youth, I used to work at a local car wash place. If you traveled trough Balkans you probably saw many of them, and they all use handheld pressure washers. When I saw this video it reminded me of that time and I thought you guys would enjoy and find something useful in this project. Ben Krasnow used a very cheap pressure washer and attached a DIY abrasive sand container combined with AccuStream professional cutter head to make a low-cost DIY waterjet cutter.

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

i.materialise

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.
