When it comes to technology some people like to use their devices just as they’re supposed to. Then, three are those who have to see exactly what they can get their tech to do. These are the over-clockers and people who find innovative and creative uses for their gadgets.
One of the more common devices that people like to upgrade are their 3D printers and the Anet A8 is no exception. This budget-friendly printer is great for beginners who want to get into the 3D printing niche without spending an arm and a leg.
When it comes to the Anet A8, upgrading the machine can make it more stable while providing additional functionality and features. Of course, upgrades on a 3D printer involves more than just changing out a few pieces. It can be much more
Nylon is designed to give you a next-level experience with 3D printing. As a printing material, it’s just as versatile as more common filaments like PLS or ABS, but it has the added advantages of flexibility, tensile strength, and extraordinarily high layer resolution. Its low friction coefficient and high melting temperature (and melting point) make it great for… Read More »
The secret’s out of the bag – 3D printing is revolutionizing the world we live in. If you are like me, then you’ve already thought of a bunch of different ideas for 3D printing. However – if you are also like me – the technology seemed a bit daunting at first. When I first was introduced to a… Read More »
So, you’ve recently bought yourself a 3D printer, or you have one sitting around not giving it much work, and you want to make some extra cash on the side. Or maybe, you want to get a 3D printer but find it hard to justify the cost and are looking for some sort of return on your investment.… Read More »
It is hard to go a day without hearing about the next “revolutionary” technology. The reality is that the next revolutionary technology has been around for quite a while now. We are referring to 3D printing. While it may be a new technology for some people, some forms of 3D printing date back to the 1980s. 3D printing… Read More »
In the relatively short time 3D printing has been around, few things have largely contributed to the growth of the industry. One of the biggest factors is open source printers. Open source printers allow the industry to evolve and grow to fit consumer needs as users themselves find ways to upgrade printers. Many big names in the industry… Read More »
Finding a good 3D printing service isn’t easy in rapidly changing 3D printing space. With the costs of even desktop 3D printers still inaccessible to many, a service can greatly reduce the headaches associated with the process. But what exactly IS a 3D printing service… What is a 3D printing service? 3D printing services are companies that will… Read More »
3D printing is amazingly versatile. It’s not just a novelty process for toys or collectibles – it can actually help save lives and keep people healthy while making both of those easier and less expensive. Dental 3D printing is a great example of this. It’s a niche process born from refining the details of general 3D printing so… Read More »
You’ve got your design perfected and your dimensions on point. You’ve beasted your computer-aided drafting program and your model is perfection. The only decision left is when to hit print. Right? Not quite! Before you continue, make sure you take the time to figure out what materials and filaments you want to use. There’s a huge variety, and… Read More »
3D printing is not always a stand-alone process – sometimes it’s only the first step in a manufactured part’s journey. When paired with mass fabrication processes like injection molding, the advantages and disadvantages of both processes come into sharp relief against each other. Though they can both participate in the same ultimate goal of creating parts for a… Read More »
