3D Printed Gauges and Fixtures Are Very Effective

3D Printed Gauges and Fixtures Are Very Effective

Vulcan GMS has blogged about our 3D printer, the Stratasys Fortus 250mc, in the past. This machine is an FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) machine and builds up the parts in layers as small as 0.007 inches using an ABS material. Normally these types of machines are thought of as “prototype part producers,” but we have found that there are many additional uses for them beyond prototyping for our...
