Check out our 2019 3D printing technology guide to learn about all 10 types of 3D printing technology that 3D printers use today. Terms like FDM, SLA, DLP, SLS, DMLS, SLM, EBM, Material Jetting, DOD, and Binder Jetting simply explained.
3D printing is neither new nor limited to parts created from extruded plastic. Let's learn more about the established technologies, including how they work and what makes them unique.
Interested in the process of reproducing real objects through 3D scanning and 3D printing? In this article, we take a look at both technologies, paying special attention to how they differ and how they can work together.
The principles of DLP vs SLA are fundamentally the same. Both use light to induce polymerization of a photo-sensitive resin. But the way they go about applying this principle is what sets them apart. Here we take a deeper look at that divide in an DLP vs SLA shootout.
What many people don't actually know is that 3D printing is not a new technology. In fact, the first-ever patent for 3D printing was successfully issued in 1986. Let's take a closer look at the history of 3D printing and how it all came about.
If you've ever wondered what a UV resin 3D printer is and how it works, you've come to the right place. We'll explain resin 3D printing and then go into more detail about specific types of resin 3D printers.
In the past few years, the jewelry industry has been transformed with the introduction of 3D printers, which are capable of producing easily-castable, high detail parts. Let's take a look at some of the most popular 3D printers for jewelry.
Post-processing is critical for achieving the full resolution of your SLA 3D printer. Here are the best ways to go about cleaning up your SLA prints.
Unlike thermoplastic filament printers, which typically use a 0.4-mm nozzle, a resin 3D SLA printer may have a laser spot size of 140 microns. The result? The smoothest and most precise 3D prints you've ever seen, if you know what you're doing...
In the always-growing world of 3D printing, there are two types of 3D printers which use lasers to build solid parts. If you are new to 3D printing, you might have already wondered what is a "3D laser printer". Well, let make it clear for you.
The ELEGOO Mars is an affordable UV LCD 3D printer that offers a user-friendly and intuitive experience. Let's review the specs.
Two similar technologies, two similar uses, two different results. It's SLA vs SLS, with comparisons, contrasts, and general descriptions of how these methods work. Sound interesting? Then keep reading!
We remember Gutenberg as the inventor of movable type and Edison as the inventor of the light bulb. Each made critical advancements, but each had important predecessors as well. And so it was with 3D printing.
When is a stained glass window not a stained glass window? When it's 3D printed and hand finished to look even better than the real thing.
Let's review the specs and features of theMonoprice Mini SLA Deluxe 3D Printer 3D printer.
