Metal Spinning a Great Process with Low Tooling Cost

The process uses a tool that becomes the inside form of your part. This tool looks like the part that is being made. In the spinning process, the metal blank is pressed against the forming tool and then the tool and the blank rotate. Once the part is spinning, a series of roller balls are used to apply pressure to the metal blank causing it to move and conform to the inner tool shape. Generally...

In Case you Missed it, We Used our 3D Printer to Make Skulls for Halloween!

3D printed parts begin as 3D models from a modeling software such as Solidworks. This software allows the user to construct a part or object on a computer in a three-dimensional world instead of the old 2D from years ago. This 3D computer model provides all the details needed to construct the object. A 3D printer then uses this computer generated 3D model to produce the 3D part. A 3D printer like...
