Additive Manufacturing: Materials for 3D Printing
Additive Manufacturing: Materials for 3D Printing is an Intermediate level course on CAD, produced by an expert, Rich Cameron. This course is an absolute foundation for an individual who needs to get better at his/her CAD skills. It provides you a strong understanding on CAD, Manufacturing, 3D Printing, Prototyping, Web, Product Design, CAD, Manufacturing, 3D Printing, Prototyping, Web and Product Design.
If you want to print functional 3D parts or products, it’s critical to select the right material for each job. You need to look at the requirements of your design, evaluating criteria such as strength, surface finish, color, and cost. Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron—founders of maker tech consulting company Nonscriptum LLC—show how to choose the correct material based on your design and printing method, surveying materials that are commonly available for use with desktop 3D printers (filament and resin) along with an intro to industrial materials like nylon and metal powders. They review the workflow for each type of material, and teach ways to optimize throughput and turnaround time. Plus, get an inside look at a few applications that use 3D printing as a cost-effective solution for short-run manufacturing.
- Defining material requirements
- Choosing materials
- Designing parts for resin printing vs. filament printing
- SLS, metal, and full-color printing
- Examples of applications in short run manufacturing
