Additive Manufacturing Changes How We Think About Design

By | August 9th, 2017|

As 3D printing has become more and more mainstream, the traditional resource and skills barriers for manufacturing are all but vanishing. This trend is changing the very face of design. For the first time, producing complex products is no more difficult, expensive, or time-consuming than making simpler objects. 3D printing a block with holes, notches, [...]

CPI Aerostructures Uses FDM 3D Printing for Custom Tooling

By | June 16th, 2017|

Reprint from www.additivemanufacturing Adding an FDM 3D printer enabled a producer of subassemblies for aircraft to bypass traditional tooling solutions on many custom tools and bring much of this work in-house. Cimquest customer, CPI Aerostructures was in a good position in 2013. After years as a small business providing subassemblies almost exclusively for military aircraft, [...]
