3D Printing Business: Inside Fila-Mint

Materials make the difference in 3D printing. A good print ultimately comes down to the a harmonious coming together of materials, hardware, and software. While much of the focus today is on advanced materials including metals and bioprintable living matter, polymers remain at the heart of additive manufacturing, comprising the largest materials segment and adaptable […]

Guide to Selecting and Buying 3D Printing Filament in 2018

Guide to Selecting and Buying 3D Printing Filament in 2018

Your priority was likely finding the right 3D printer to match your requirements and budget. But what often gets less attention is the filament you feed through it. After all, plastic is just plastic, right? So it would make sense to just find something that’s cheapish and prints OK. This is how most people approach […]

Strategic Partnership Agreement Leads to Nanodiamond-Enhanced 3D Printing Filaments

Strategic Partnership Agreement Leads to Nanodiamond-Enhanced 3D Printing Filaments

Nanomaterials, according to the National Institutes of Health, are characterized by their very small size, which is measured in nanometers, naturally; one nanometer is about 100,000 times smaller than the diameter of a single human hair, so that’s pretty small. Nano-sized particles do exist in nature, but can also be created from different products, like carbon, graphene, […]
