Additive Manufacturing: 3 Design Techniques for High Speed Extrusion 3D Printing

| The Essentium Team


“High Speed Extrusion” (HSE) is Essentium’s rapid deposition process for 3D printing polymer parts at production speeds. It is fused filament fabrication (FFF), but the speed means even the design considerations appropriate to FFF may not be sufficient for this process. Tom Mulholland describes the design considerations for HSE.

While there are many design tips and techniques for additive manufacturing (AM) to be found, such as tips for FFF, selective laser sintering (SLS) and stereolithography (SLA), these design tips are not always applicable to filament printing for High Speed Extrusion, which is a distinct process. Here we look at some design tips that will specifically help design for HSE to achieve faster print times without sacrificing quality or repeatability.

3D Natives: Essentium Survey Shows That Investments in AM are Paying Off

In early February, Essentium, Inc announced the results of the second in a series of findings from independent global research on the current and future use of industrial 3D printing. We previously covered the first survey published in 2019, which focused mainly on the slow adoption of additive manufacturing for mass-production. This new survey has shown significant advancements in that particular arena as well as significant benefits for users of industrial additive manufacturing while also highlighting remaining challenges to overcome, notably concerning the cost of 3D printing technologies and materials.
