3DGence Industry F350, F420 and F421 Differences and Comparison
3DGence Industry F350, F420 and F421 Differences and Comparison
16 November 2021

The 3DGence F350, F420 and F421 are all industrial-grade 3D printers suited to rapid prototyping and final production. They all have interchangeable print modules, unlocking material capabilities with a quick swap-out. However, these printers are suited to different tasks. Before looking at the differences between them, we should note that the F421 is the successor […]

3DGence F420 - Your Guide to PEEK, PEKK and ULTEM Filaments
22 January 2020

There are polymers, and then there are superpolymers. Superpolymers are so-named because they exhibit exceptional characteristics in specific areas, such as mechanical or chemical. These might include tensile strength, flexural strength, chemical resistance, a high strength-to-weight ratio or a desirable FST (flame, smoke, and toxicity) rating. In any case, the point is, these materials are […]

Your Guide to the 3DGence INDUSTRY F420
13 December 2019

Every so often, a machine or device comes along that changes the way we do things. For manufacturers, engineers and designers, 3D printing is the newest such thing, allowing them to fabricate and make parts and tools in-house. However, 3D printing has a key limitation, and that is extruder temperature. You see, different plastics have […]

3D Printing Mecanum Wheels with AJmaker and 3DGence
22 November 2019

The wheel was undoubtedly the most important engineering invention ever, but the Mecanum wheel follows very closely behind. These wheels can move a vehicle with a standard chassis in any direction, without the vehicle turning or manoeuvring. Instead, the Mecanum wheel allows for in-place rotation. The inventor of the Mecanum wheel, Bengt Erland Ilon, patented […]

Using 3D Printing for the Revitalisation of Traditional Architecture
24 October 2019

Over time, most buildings get updated -- and no structure is immune to change. Updates are often the result of an architect trying to satisfy the requirements of modern use, which is why we often see extensions and annexes on period properties. Some older buildings are updated so much that they become unrecognisable from the […]

How Airbus is Using 3D Printing to Reduce Aircraft Emissions
26 September 2019

Image credit. It is estimated that for every kilogram of weight saved on a commercial aircraft, 25 tonnes of CO2 emissions are prevented during its lifetime. This startling truth is why weight reduction is considered the Holy Grail of aerospace engineering, and it is why companies like Airbus invest considerably in the area. A kilogram […]
