Tips for Choosing the Right 3D Printing Material

TRX Webinar Series Archive

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.
