Webinar: Where Additive Meets Traditional Manufacturing
Additive manufacturing is not at odds with conventional manufacturing. In fact, advanced and traditional technologies are greater than the sum of their parts. Learn how to use 3D printing in conjunction with machining, casting and molding to achieve unparalleled production. Watch this webinar to learn how additive technologies improve efficiency with urethane casting, CNC machining can be used to bring additive parts into spec, create quick molding tools and more!

White Paper: Top Challenges to Widespread 3D Printing Adoption
You often hear about the benefits of 3D printing: design freedom, part consolidation, no tooling required, just-in-time inventory, etc. To today’s engineer, the list of technical advantages is endless. And yet, companies still struggle to incorporate the technology into their product development and manufacturing operations. According to industry analysts, additive manufacturing is still less than 2% of the entire manufacturing market. What challenges are holding additive manufacturing back from widespread adoption? We surveyed 700 serious, professional users to uncover what users of 3D printing perceive as the top challenges their company faces in using AM now and will face in the future.

White Paper: An Insider’s Guide to Laser Sintering
Laser Sintering (LS), one of the first 3D printing processes to make its way onto aircraft, remains a reliable 3D printing technology for accurate, lightweight parts for commercial aerospace to fighter jets and unmanned systems. Despite its long-term use in aerospace manufacturing, the University of Texas and Stratasys Direct Manufacturing recognized that a key inhibitor to adopting LS remains: Design know-how. Through a combined study on the process, we’ve compiled critical design and build guidelines for LS. The trade knowledge gathered within our white paper will help you become an expert in LS 3D printing.

Webinar: Incorporating 3D Printing Into Your Business Model
Dr. Phil Reeves, a Strategic Consultant with Stratasys, believes there are six fundamental drivers to additive manufacturing (or industrial 3D printing) adoption

  • Economic Low Volume Production
  • Increased Product Complexity (Geometric)
  • Cost Effective Product Personalization
  • Improved Environmental Sustainability
  • Optimized Supply Chains And Retail Models
  • Increased Part Functionality

Hear from Dr. Reeves in this comprehensive webinar on what’s really holding businesses back from adopting 3D printing, and how that adoption can drive exponential business value.

White Paper: Getting the most out of Metal 3D Printing
Tap into the potential of metal 3D printing by optimizing design, materials and heat treatment methods. Discover how metal 3D printing is the ideal alternative to complex designs that machining or casting can’t achieve. Metal 3D printing offers the mechanical properties of aerospace standard materials and the design freedom of 3D printing.
