Of the 114,000 thousand plastics recognized by the Society of Plastics Engineers, roughly 600 are used in 3D printing processes. 3D printing materials are often referred to by their traditional names like ABS, nylon, polypropolene, etc., but be aware that many 3D-printed materials only mimic true thermoplastics. For example, a 3D-printed part in ABS-like material will have similar, but not identical, properties to a molded ABS part.

Metal 3D printing is not intended to replace traditional metal manufacturing processes. Rather, it’s a manufacturing tool that opens up new possibilities for product designers. There are many metal 3D printing technologies out there like direct metal laser sintering (DMLS), selective laser melting (SLM), electron beam melting (EBM). Each are fairly similar in how they build parts from atomized metal powders.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of joining hundreds of additive manufacturing enthusiasts at the Dassault Systemes’ first-ever Additive Manufacturing Symposium in Chicago, which was part of the larger SCIENCE in the Age of Experience event being held May 15-18. The goal of the event was to bring the world’s leading experts and advocates of additive manufacturing (AM) together to share insights regarding the latest innovations, collaboratively address on-going industry challenges, and generate ideas

Most product developers and engineers have gained a solid working knowledge of 3D printing over the years. Also known as additive manufacturing, the term covers a range of technologies, such as filament-based fused deposition modeling (FDM) that creates plastic prototypes, laser-curing processes that make parts from photopolymer resins, and powder-bed fusion machines that produce fully dense metal and plastic components. All offer great potential for cost reductions when prototyping.

Additive Manufacturing or 3D Printing has had a huge amount of hype in the last few years and in many cases has not lived up to expectation. This is because it is not a miracle manufacturing method for making anything and everything, but a different way of making things that has reached a maturity where for certain applications it is commercially viable. However, as with all manufacturing methods, design for manufacture is crucial. Understanding how that method works is key to that.

This year’s SAE AERO Design West competition took place in the heart of the USA, nestled right in Fort Worth Texas. Students from all around the world and from different walks of life, filled the hotel lobby with propellers, DC motors, and aerodynamic fuselages, as they marched their planes in and out of the judges’ arena.

Many analysts predict that 2017 will be the year where the hype around 3D printing fades away and becomes a realistic and commercially viable way of manufacturing more than just prototypes. The biggest challenge for this is understanding how the many different additive processes work and how to design specifically for it. Simply 3D printing an existing design that has been optimized for a traditional manufacturing method will almost certainly be more expensive.
