3D Systems has introduced VisiJet M3 Black, a plastic injection molding-like material for use in its ProJet 3500/3510 professional 3D printers. It is said to be the printers’ strongest, most durable material yet, with excellent toughness and flex properties that make it suitable for snap-fit and assembly applications. Its jet-black color also mimics injection-molded plastic performance so engineers and designers can prototype, test and use parts that look and feel like the final product, the company says.
Editor PickCan Additive Manufacturing Increase Milling Feed Rates?
With PCD tooling, yes it can. The diamond cutting edges demand a large number flutes to realize their full effectiveness. Traditional methods for making cutter bodies limit the number of flutes, but 3D printing is delivering tools with higher flute density and other enhancements as well.
