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. Dive into how AM works, where it can be used, what the future might bring.
In this guide, you learn about common 3D printing post processing methods for use at home or in the workshop to help you find the right workflow to perfect your parts.
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.
