What’s different about Fabrisonic’s patented UAM technology? 3D printing is entering its fourth decade, with a lot of new technologies being developed along the way. Currently, the most popular among them is fused deposition modeling (FDM)—also known as fused filament fabrication (FFF)—a quick and cost-effective method for producing physical models. However, FDM results in parts that… Continue reading This Company Is Shaking Up Additive Manufacturing with Ultrasonics
