The Most Important 3D Printing Technologies & Materials You Need to Know
APRIL 8, 2020
In this post, we’ll give you an overview of the essential 3D printing technologies and 3D printing materials that are currently used on an industrial level. In an FDM printer, a long plastic filament is fed by a spool to a nozzle where the material is liquefied and ‘drawn’ on the platform, where it immediately hardens again. The nozzle moves to place the material in the correct location to build your model up layer by layer. The un-sintered powder is the supporting material.
