For those learning to use additive manufacturing, let us explore some essential 3D-printing basics.

Infographic: 3D Printing Design Tips

Aug 20, 2020

New materials are being added every day to the additive manufacturing industry. For engineers looking to dive into 3D printing with new materials, it is often helpful to know industry tips since each material behaves uniquely.
 
Most recently, polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), or more commonly known as Teflon, is now a material available for 3D printing. 3M has created a design guide for engineers looking to create their 3D printed PTFE parts. The guide is also useful as general tips for those looking to design parts specifically for 3D printing.
