“3D Printing: What is it and an Example of its Use”
Over the last 20 years, 3D printing has evolved from a technology that was once used primarily by hobbyists into a mainstream prototyping and production tool. Spurred on by the “maker movement” of the 2010’s, 3D printing technology enjoyed high levels of adoption in the education sector. As graduates have entered the workforce, 3D printing technology has now made its way into advanced manufacturing facilities for prototype iteration, jigs and fixtures, as well as low piece count production. While many different types of 3D printing technologies exist, currently none is more prevalent than Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM). This presentation will cover FDM technology use cases, materials, limitations, and equipment considerations, and highlight prototype iteration as one of the technology’s main advantages in today’s advanced manufacturing sector.
