Optimize CAD files for 3D Printing

Learn from our 3D CAD experts as they show you how to create and modify design files for 3D printing. You will learn modeling best practices to reduce material usage and ensure your parts are printed correctly. We will show you how to deal with holes, fine details, thin walls, adjusting for strength, moving parts and assemblies.

Reduce 3D Print Time and Costs

Through successful case studies discover how manufacturers reduce time and money by using a 3D printer for traditional manufacturing to produce jigs, fixtures, gauges, patterns, injection and blow molds, or dies

Gain an understanding of 3D Print Materials and how to work with them correctly. We'll provide examples of printed parts made from engineering plastics including ABS, ASA, Polycarbonate, Nylon, ULTEM, and PPSF/PPSU.
