- [Joan] Figuring out how to enter the art of manufacturing world can be overwhelming. There is so many different types of 3D printers with new materials and technologies popping up almost daily. Where to begin? To get started, you'll need to know how to look at the requirements for the part you want to manufacture. - [Rich] How strong does the part need to be? - [Joan] How good does the surface finish have to be, and will I want to paint it? - [Rich] Does it need to be in full color? - [Joan] Can my facility handle 3D printers? - [Rich] When is it cost effective to move from traditional manufacturing to 3D printing? And what are some of the ways to get your feet wet and then scale up? - [Joan] We're Joan Horvath and Rich Cameron, the co-founders Non Scriptum LLC, a consulting company, and authors of many books on 3D printing and other technologies.
- [Rich] To start finding the answers to those questions, join us in our LinkedIn Learning Course on materials for 3D printing. - [Joan] We'll show you how people use 3D printing for short run manufacturing jobs, such as tooling, dentistry, and even 3D printers that print their own parts.
