3dprinting vs cncmachining

WEBINAR:

3D Printing vs. CNC Machining

September 20, 2023
Stratasys

In the product development phase there are many process options for creating models, prototypes, patterns or molds. Selecting the best approach requires an appreciation for the project requirements, an understanding of the process considerations, and an evaluation of the resulting time, cost and quality. Without this information, it is difficult to identify the optimal approach. When designs are still fluid and product specifications are in flux, two common choices are 3D printing and CNC (computer numerical control) milling. While there are plenty of similarities among these technologies, in many ways, 3D printing is the opposite of CNC milling. Most notably, the factors that influence time and cost are quite different. Additionally, the size, shape and configuration of suitable or ideal parts for 3D printing are a reversal from the ideal for CNC machining.

To choose between the two, a thorough understand of both processes is necessary. Join PADT’s Chief Engineer and manufacturing expert, Dave Dietrich, for a live presentation covering the fundamental values of 3D printing and CNC machining, as well as a look at the advantages of each in certain scenarios.

Improved Injection Molding with Additive

August 23, 2023
Stratasys

3D printing is commonly used to build prototype parts for the detection of issues related to form, fit and function. However, 3D printed prototypes cannot provide a complete assessment of an injection molded part’s functional performance due to the fact that 3D material properties are different than those actually used in injection molding.

Until recently, the only option for manufacturers to conduct design and functional testing of injection molded parts was to machine an aluminum (soft) tool. Today, PolyJet 3D printed injection molds are a better option for evaluating part design and performance.

Using data from CAD files along with its inkjet-like process, PolyJet 3D printing can deliver high resolution and smooth surfaces that are ideal for building injection molds capable of producing prototype parts in end-use thermoplastic. Plus, they can be constructed in one or two days as opposed to days and weeks for metal tools.

Optimize Jigs & Fixtures with Additive

March 23, 2023
Stratasys

Factory production lines know the right jig or fixture speeds up production and greatly increases productivity. But that’s just the beginning. Well-designed tools are more ergonomic, offering both increased worker safety and productivity, as well as cost savings. While essential to efficiency, accuracy and safety, jigs and fixtures are often considered a necessary evil in the overall production process. Costly, protracted timelines for machined jigs and fixtures are the culprit here, especially for the often complex designs necessary to meet unique part needs.

When convenience and quality come together in manufacturing, the results speak for themselves. Being able to 3D print jigs and fixtures whenever you need them reduces cost, improves safety and boosts efficiency.

Based on the success of previous projects, Advatech is a strong proponent of using high-end simulation software such as ANSYS to identify and evaluate the fine details of massive multi-body mechanical systems, whether through simple static analyses or tightly-coupled multiphysics computations.

Implementing additive manufacturing as an additional way to improve system design presented opportunities to cut back on tooling costs and reduce lead time for several candidate turbine-engine parts. Doing so would also alleviate the challenge of reproducing complex castings, a problem made increasingly difficult by the fact that many of the original casting providers are no longer in business.
