This webinar will help you understand how each 3D printing technology is a distinct fabrication process that builds parts from raw additive manufacturing materials. Whether you are looking to print a thermoplastic-like material, a nylon, or a metal, there are process and design guidelines to understand that will help you understand which material is right for your parts and intended design application.
You will learn:
- The differences and tradeoffs between 3D printed materials for the following manufacturing processes: stereolithography, selective laser sintering, PolyJet, Multi Jet Fusion, Carbon DLS, and direct metal laser sintering
- Key material properties for plastic and metal additively manufactured parts
- Shortcuts to understanding which type of 3D printed material you should pursue for your design
