Manufacturing with FDR
Free eGuide: Design for Additive Manufacturing with FDR
Discover the key design elements to 3D print one-of-a-kind delicate and durable parts.
Download the eGuide to familiarize yourself with fundamental design considerations and valuable 3D printing insights to leverage new fields of applications.
Every additive manufacturing (AM) technology has distinct capabilities, design freedoms, and limitations. Fine Detail Resolution (FDR) functions in a manner very similar to Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), but at a much greater level of precision. The thinner laser beam of FDR helps to create new exposure parameters which make it ideal for industrial 3D printing applications involving delicate structures, ultra-thin wall thicknesses or outstanding dimensional accuracy.
This eGuide will discuss key design considerations that organizations using FDR for 3D printing must consider when leveraging this technology for polymer production. These considerations range from broad insights to detail-oriented tips for AM success: fundamental design principles, parameter measurements for various component dimensions, structural concerns, data preparation considerations for CAD software, best practices for part orientation, and tips on how to avoid common build issues before the build process even begins.
This eGuide provides insights for both the well-versed, seasoned engineer and those just beginning their polymer 3D printing journey on how to:
- Leverage all essential design principles
- Export data without compromising part quality
- Perfectly orientate parts to minimize time, cost, and waste
- Bypass technology-inherent phenomena and common errors
