One technology that is often referred to in the context of additive manufacturing and 3D printing is engineering simulation. In contrast to additive manufacturing – which can directly create physical products from virtual designs – engineering simulation allows engineering professionals to virtually investigate the behavior of products and assemblies.
EnvisionTEC, a leading global manufacturer of desktop and full-production 3D printers and materials, has announced a cost-saving, disposable material tray for its premium desktop 3D printers at JCK Las Vegas, the jewelry industry’s premier trade show.
