Expanding 3D Print Applications Using Post Processing Techniques with Wes Kramer
In 3D print design, there is a noticeable gap between what we are creating on the machine and what consumers expect and are willing to buy. There is a lack of post-processing techniques that help in the 3D manufacturing process and create an overall better and polished 3D product. In this episode, Tom Hazzard and Tracy Hazzard bring in someone who can help you with this problem area. They interview Wes Kramer, a 3D application engineer at HP, who helps companies achieve the results they need for their consumers before buying. Wes talks about expanding 3D print applications using post-processing techniques, covering areas from the uniformity of the 3D print product with hydrographics, its surface quality with sandblasting and vapor smoothing, to enhancing other properties such as mechanical, conductivity, and more. Taking it further, he then taps into the sub-assembly of the 3D product and gives some tips and tricks on the better ways to attach parts today. Listen in on this great conversation to learn how you can close the gap between your 3D print machines’ constraints to the 3D design that is acceptable to the end-users.
