Tips for improving 3D printing workflows

Leslie's Blog

STL is basically little more than triangles, so it is a simple representation of your model. In some cases, the data is from an older design or part and so no solid model is available. Programs like Magics, Rhino3DPRINT, NetFabb and Spark offer mesh stitching functions that will stitch the data to deliver one solid mesh model. It helps you fit the model in the printer volume, detect thin walls, and checks the overhangs where you will need supports.

What is Rapid Prototyping?

In'Tech Industies

Rapid prototyping (RP) is a group of techniques that are used to produce scale models of a product using 3D printing technology and computer-aided design (CAD) data. Laminated object manufacturing, fused deposition modeling (FDM), and selective laser sintering (SLS) technologies were introduced in the later years. If done the conventional way, creating a prototype for tooling or other model parts can take days.

The Process of Prototyping Your Project

In'Tech Industies

Prototyping is an integral part of the design process, whether it is a crude sketch on your notebook or a model created by a 3D printer. Complex prototypes can be created using 3D printers and CAD data of the model. There are many technologies that are available to create your final model. Rapid prototyping using 3D printing technology is a quick and easy solution to build your model within just a few hours.
