WEBINAR: How to choose your AM engineering grade material and 3D printer?
On February 25th, 3Dnatives along with experts from 3DGence will be hosting a webinar to discuss how to choose the best material as well as the right printer for engineering-grade 3D printing projects. There are many things to consider when choosing material for 3D printing projects, and the questions to be answered just become more daunting when materials need to be engineering-grade, meaning they should be able to stand up to more rigorous industry standards than basic projects. This is not made easier by the sheer number of different types of materials available for 3D printing, notably different plastics (especially thermoplastics) and carbon fiber for engineering grade printing. All these products have different requirements, especially when it comes to thermoplastics. For example, polycarbonate (PC), is highly valued by the additive manufacturing industry for its strength as well as its low density which makes it ideal for optical parts. However, it is not as easy to print with as other thermoplastics as it needs a high extrusion and build plate temperature.
In this webinar with 3DGence, we will be able to discuss the printing requirements as well as the applications for engineering grade materials (including PC, PC-CF, PA, PA-CF, among others) for additive manufacturing projects. The panelists will answer questions like why do you need a heated chamber? Is it possible to print with these materials without one? Why is it importance to have dry material? By the end, you will not only understand the different materials that are available for engineering-grade printing, but how to best use them and how to choose a 3D printer that will be suited to each material. Additionally, at the end there will be a dedicated Q&A session at the end for any additional questions from attendees, allowing for additional lingering questions that might not have been addressed during the presentation.
3DGence will also be introducing their new 3D Printer. This latest model in their portfolio is perfect for advanced prototyping and rapid production. They will introduce the printer as well as its specs and key differences with other products, and what makes it appropriate to use for engineering-grade 3D printing. To learn more about engineering-grade material and printers, as well as about 3DGence’s new printer, you can register for free HERE. The webinar will take place at 4PM CET (10AM EST).
