How 3D Printing Works: Compare FDM, DLP, SLS, and SLA 3D Printing Processes (Part 1/3)

Check out the second part of the Intro to 3D Printing series: Material Selection: *************************************** In this webinar, you’ll gain the foundation you need to start speaking the language 3D printing. Learn how parts created from various printing technologies differ across functionality and appearance, and how these differences impact product prototyping, development and production workflows for engineers and manufacturers. What you will learn: Where the true value in 3D printing ultimately lies and what you should be focusing on. Pros and cons of the print process mechanisms, considering aspects such as: Setting up a print file, print process mechanism, post-processing, maintenance, and scalability. A comparison between four 3D printing technologies: Fused deposition modeling (FDM), selective laser sintering (SLS), digital light polymerization (DLP), and stereolithography (SLA). Compare the time it takes for printing, cleaning up, curing, and removing support of parts between technologies. The hidden knowledge it takes to maintain a printer and the costs for expanding.
