As product design consultants, we must keep up with changing technology and design skill expansion to remain valuable to our clients. This was ultimately the reason we jumped into 3D Printing over a year ago. We found out quickly that discovering our WHAT of FFF 3D Printing and navigating all the constantly changing complexity of the who, what, where, why and how is the key to successful 3d Printing.
We selected FFF 3D Printing (that’s Fused Filament Fabrication or also called Fused Deposition Modeling – FDM) because of its economics and ability to output a product that doesn’t require post-finishing. For under $4000 we could invest in our skill building and learn the ins and outs of 3D Printing.
We wish it was that simple though. We did get lucky selecting a Makerbot as our first printer because it removed some of the complexity out of the learning process. Understandably in doing that, it also removed some of the design capability too. But, if you haven’t mastered it yet, you won’t miss it. We didn’t initially. Once we did, we moved on to our next printer, the Leapfrog CreatrHS with dual extrusion or the ability to do two-color FFF 3D Printing.
