      Top 4 Benefits of 3D Printing Models for Architects   When 3D printing architectural models, you combine the precision of virtual 3D modeling with the tangibility of a physical object. Architects used to create scale models mostly out of wood or foam, but more and more of them are embracing the benefits of 3D printing their newest designs. Read on to learn why architects are joining the 3D printing revolution!   1. Your clients can visualize your architectural designs better           A 3D printed object makes your design tangible. So a detailed scale model of the final project can...

Achieving dimensional accuracy with 3D prints can be a pain. Use these easy tips and tricks in order to gain a headstart on achieving the highest tolerances possible! What Is Dimensional Accuracy?   Dimensional accuracy, as its name implies, is the accuracy of dimensions. In this article, we are going to specifically focus on the dimensional accuracy of 3D printed parts. How good is it? And how can you improve it? But first, why is dimensional accuracy important? In fact, for many models it is unimportant. If you just need something for fun or decoration, you usually won’t be pulling...

3D printing or “additive manufacturing” is the process of joining materials to make objects from three-dimensional model data, usually layer upon layer. In 2017 the 3D printing industry was worth $7bn, up from $3bn in 2013 and by 2025 it is expected to account for over $20bn all over the world. Additive manufacturing (AM) has found its application in different sectors of the power industry, both in building prototypes and in mainstream production leading to process simplification and operational efficiency. During the initial phase of making inroads in the power industry, 3D printing has achieved a fair level of success...
