A little over a year ago, I was contaced by the Application team from Stratasys to see if I would be interested in Alpha testing a new piece of software that was in development. I'm pretty sure I shouted YES! before they finished the statement. GrabCAD Print is the answer to something that always seemed strange to me in the 3D Printing arena, the lack of a unified 3D printing Software. If you have a printer (or two) laying around from Stratasys, you'll realize that each family of printers has their own software. Mojo Print Wizard, Catalyst, Insight, Objet Studio, and PolyJet Studio are the current softwares. Each one controls 1 or more printer, but there was no overlap. You needed...
Your back for more? This is part 5 of the "What I learned at AMUG" series. This post is from Mark Oakes, Account manger, from our Novi, MIchigan office. See here for part 1, part 2, part 3, and part 4. 1. Meeting and having a one-on-one discussion with industry inventors. Scott Crump; I asked him what would be the next great step in the industry. He asked me if I thought I could sell a 3D Printer that produced thousands of parts a day. I said "Sell it!?, Heck, I'd buy one!" (I made Scott Crump smile and Laugh). Carl Deckard; Met the Father of Selective Laser Sintering 3D Printing as 3dprint.com calls him. Interesting but quiet fellow.I also met a...
We all love hearing an inspiring story. Just the other day, a friend who works in our office building, stopped by our offices and was explaining to her friend what we do here at 3DVision Technologies. As she was explaining the Stratasys 3D Printers to her friend, I just happen to walk by. I introduced myself and shared a little bit about the technology and gave them a newly 3D printed fidget spinner to take with them. Little did either of us know until a couple days later, what impact this little gift would make on a close friend’s autistic son. In her own words, you can read the touching story below. Dear 3DVision Technologies, I would like to share with...
This is a continuation of the "What I learned at AMUG 2017 series" This post is from Evette Brodnik, Account Manager, from our Cleveland, Ohio Office. See here for part 1, part 2, and part 3. Some take aways: The hands on classes were a great opportunity. I enjoyed the Sand casting/Investment casting class and having the opportunity to touch, feel and pour molten tin into the mold and release. Sometimes that’s all it takes to have a clearer understanding of what you are trying to convey. I enjoyed Siobhan filming me as well! Meeting the Stratasys people face to face was a pleasure. A few I have relied on for help when Jeremy, our own Application Engineer, was out; it...
If you've been following my last few blog posts, you won't be surprised this is part 3 of a series on what our team learned at Amug this year. See Part 1 or Part 2. This post is from Rich Baes, one of our account managers from Novi, Michigan. He's been in the Additive Industry for a long time! Here are a few of the things I took away from the AMUG conference: It’s not about prototyping anymore, it’s about leveraging the technologies to find solutions for our customers; from automotive to aerospace, plastic to metal, and most importantly, I learned to “think differently". I saw many old colleagues still in the business and met several younger up-and-comers. This is a...
