HAND PICKED 3D PRINTING KNOWLEDGE
Additive manufacturing (AM) isn’t just one process. It’s a whole workflow that can impact product development from design to manufacturing. Let’s dive into a look at how AM works, where it can be used, and what the future might bring.
NERA shows that the low cost and fast results of additive manufacturing allow designers to immediately test prototypes and rapidly produce iterations of experimental engineering.
Ford Motor Company optimized factory-floor tooling production with a 94% lead time reduction by introducing BigRep large-format additive manufacturing.

How Walter Automobiltechnik Streamlines Quality Assurance with 3D Printed Automotive Production Tools
Integrating 3D printing into the automotive industry’s product development and prototyping workflows is now a widely accepted strategy to reduce costs and lead times. Despite the acceptance, later stages of industrial production remain ripe for additive innovation. One recent area of rapid growth is in 3D printed production tools for use in serial production.
What is Thermoforming & Vacuum Forming? How to 3D Print Moulds Easily.
Vacuum forming has been used for nearly a century to make many of the products we see and use daily. From grocery store items to car parts, vacuum formed components are all around us. But how are they made – and how is 3D printing making them better?
Nikola Motor Invests in a BigRep PRO to Help Lead the Future of Sustainable Heavy-Duty Trucking

Carbon Fiber 3D Printer: Everything You Need To Know
Plastics reinforced with either chopped or continuous carbon fiber offer engineering-grade performance with all the benefits of 3D printing.
But what are these materials, what advantages do they offer, where are they best used, and how can you work with them?
3D Printed Car Parts for Solar-Electric Vehicles
3D printed car parts are helping engineers to rapidly prototype solar powered cars, amplifying research into replacing fossil fuels with pure solar energy in consumer vehicles.
Rapid Prototyping and 3D Printing for Better Engineering
Engineering relies on building toward the best solution. That process, though, is subject to a variety of bottlenecks at various points throughout. Forestalling one major bottleneck that happens on the way to a final product design can make your entire process better – and faster. Rapid prototyping can ease your entire engineering process in a big way with large-format 3D printing.
