3D Printing, or Additive Manufacturing, has been gaining in popularity across industries as a way to accurately and quickly produce prototypes as well as final parts. In this episode of SOLIDWORKS Live we talk with engineer and 3D additive manufacturing expert Paul DeWys, owner of DeWys Engineering and 3D Forerunner, about how to optimize your design process for 3D Printing. Discover the differences in designing for SLA (stereolithography), FDM (fused deposition modeling) and MJF (multi jet fusion) 3D printing. Learn about the different materials available for each printer and their applications. Take a look at the part Paul has designed for MJF printing, and how he has tacked different challenges associated with it. And, as a finale, see the actual printing process as well as the finished part and its assembly live.
