Three reasons to invest in post-treatment for 3D printing

Blog // Published March 8, 2022

There is far too little talk about post-treatment of 3D prints. However, it not only makes the part or product better, it also helps it stand out from the competition in the market. As 3D printing is increasingly used in many companies, a basic level is no longer sufficient. As more and more printed parts are used as end products, their appearance, durability and features are becoming increasingly important. In this blog, we give you three reasons why you should use post-treatment.

Quality in 3D printing? This is how we ensure it.

Blog // Published January 13, 2022

Are 3D printed parts of high quality and durability? That is a question that many people are still asking. At this point, it is important to remember that home 3D printing and industrial 3D printing are two different things. We manufacture a variety of parts for different companies and for very demanding needs – from prototypes to finished products and spare parts. It is therefore clear that the parts must be of very high quality. What does quality assurance at 3D Formtech mean?

Blog // Published July 1, 2021

If you, as a designer, are used to the fact that complexity is like a red rag to a bull because you have to design different components with their feasibility for production in mind, 3D printing will let you unleash your creativity. In this blog, we’ll give you three tips for you to consider when designing 3D prints or when you are interested in getting started!

Breaking out of the mould: 3D printing brings manufacturing to the 2020s

Blog // Published May 26, 2021

Is 3D printing for intricate components only? It’s true that 3D printing allows you to create even the most intricate geometric shapes, but you will also find 3D printed components in – places like Airbus’ turbo-jet engines – so, no, 3D printing is not just for intricate parts. It offers unlimited opportunities to any manufacturing company that uses plastic or metal in some way. So, what’s holding us up or preventing us from using it more?
