Here at the MD lab, we find ourselves constantly returning to the question of how to best apply our technology in a meaningful way. Without delving too deeply into the philosophical quagmire of how to define “meaningful”, you could say we are focused on the “so what?” that is proposed by possessing the capability for large format printing. We have the technology, now what can we make with it? In the lab we are constantly using our printers to rapid prototype new designs for products, and sometimes the 3D printed parts remain in the final design, while other times they...

Advances in materials science and polymer innovations are an increasingly powerful catalyst for change in the additive manufacturing industry at this time. As 3D printing gains popularity in the industrial sector as a major means of production, a broad range of applications drives a proliferation of specialized plastics uniquely suited to various purposes. In turn, the machines performing the extrusions must be engineered to possess the versatility needed to create optimum flow rates for these different materials. Hobbyists and DIYers are also often enthusiastic about having access to a multitude of printing materials and correspondingly look for a machine that...
