    Join Xometry’s Greg Paulsen for an in-depth comparison between five major, plastic 3D printing processes. In this talk, you will learn what makes them unique, how they are used, and what to consider when choosing an additive manufacturing process. Paulsen will discuss the following industrial 3D printing methods: HP Multi Jet Fusion (MJF); selective laser sintering (SLS); fused deposition modeling (FDM); stereolithography (SLA); and carbon digital light synthesis (DLS). Whether it’s cost concerns, mechanical function, performance environment, cosmetics, or output, this topic will help steer the design approach for end-use 3D-printed parts. The presentation will conclude with an open question-and-answer session.

    Key Learnings

    • Discover unique industrial 3D printing processes and how they work.
    • Learn cost drivers per process, as well as limitations.
    • Discover printer “sweet spots” based on material and application.
    • Discover decision factors when choosing a 3D-printing process for your project.
