4 – Protecting your Surfaces from Wear and Tear

Let’s look at how to protect the surfaces of your 3D prints when it comes into contact with a harder and more abrasive material, in this example metal.

 

3 – More Threaded Fasteners for 3D Printing

This week on NeoMetrix 3D Tech tips, we’re going to test the strength of a couple threaded fasteners to reinforce and strengthen your 3D prints. 

  • Full 3D Printed Post
  • Dowel Pin
  • Bolted
 

2 – Heat Inserts, Press Inserts, Captive Nuts

Let’s expand on the different types of inserts we can use to strengthen our 3D printed parts by demonstrating applications of:

  • Captive Nuts
  • Press Inserts
  • Heat inserts

Metal inserts like this allow for higher pull forces and reduce the effects of wear on your 3D printed threads.

 

1 – Printed vs. Heli-coil

Learn how to utilize helicoil inserts to maximize strength
of your 3D printed threads. Metal inserts like this allow for higher pull forces and reduce the effects of wear on your 3D printed threads.
