Assemble 3d printed parts with threaded fastener

Using a threaded fastener is a popular and effective way to assemble 3D printed parts into one piece. Many threaded fasteners are used in injection molded, traditionally machined and 3d printed parts. With these metal parts, we can assembly and disassembly products many times. Because most 3d printer owners are not mechanical engineers, we will try …

Where to manufacture product prototype of an idea

rapid prototype

When you have an idea and want to bring the idea to life, the most important thing is to manufacture a product prototype of your idea. There are two options. Option one, you can try to buy some machines, such as 3d printer, CNC machine, mini machines, and then make a product prototype/mock-up by yourself. You need some professional …

Tools of generating lattice structure on 3d model

What is lattice structure A lattice structure is an engineering or architectural structure made of a crisscross pattern of strips. It can help you to make your objects lighter but stronger. Lattice structures are more than an ornamental feature since they give your final object a reinforced and optimized structure. The lattice designs feature a …
