White Paper - Design Essentials for 3D Printing

3D printing offers the ability to manufacture complex geometries, custom components on-demand and batches of short-run parts. However, with a new fabrication method comes new design principles.

Because 3D printing is a unique technology and not every 3D printing process is the same, there are design considerations one must consider with each platform.

In this 22-page white paper, you will learn essential design elements for:
  • Rapid prototyping with stereolithography
  • 3D printing fully functional parts with selective laser sintering
  • Redefining part design with metal 3D printing
  • Various materials associated with 3D printing processes.

This white paper is sponsored by Proto Labs. To download, please complete the form on this page.
