What is PETG? How to 3D Printing PETG Filament?

Now-a-days, many 3D printing companies use PETG. Due to its long-lasting stability and efficiency, it has been admired a lot. But before using it, you should have its basic knowledge. You don't need to go somewhere else. We will provide you with all the basic information about PETG 3D printing, including its pros, cons, history, and uses in making different products.   Fused deposition modeling, also known as FDM, is the most popular 3D printing technology. This technology has been widely used for printing different types of material like composites, metals and polymers. One of the most used materials is...

Have you give up finding the Best filament yet?

Have you give up finding the Best filament yet? At CCE3D, Our engineered filament is here to help you stream your creative outlet, enabling you to see your thoughts and concepts engineered into a real and rewarding reality. The filaments are universally designed and compatible with 3D Printers using 1.75mm diameter filament, with a dimensional accuracy of +/- 0.05mm.  Perfect for strength and flexibility, CCE3D’s PETG, or Polyethylene Terephthalate Glycol-modified filament, is a great alternative to ABS or PLA filaments. PETG filaments can be processed over a wider processing range than conventional PET filaments and also offer a good combination of properties...

What is 3D Printing?

3D printing is a manufacturing process where materials are joined together to make objects from 3D model data (CAD). Typically, 3D printing is a layer-by-layer process where part geometries are “grown,” fusing with the previous layer. 3D printing processes can build objects in plastics, photopolymers, reaction polymers, composites, metal, glass, and other materials.   FDM 3D PrintingFused deposition modeling (FDM), also known as fused filament fabrication (FFF), is the most widely used form of 3D printing at the consumer level, fueled by the emergence of hobbyist 3D printers. This technique is well-suited for basic proof-of-concept models, as well as quick...

What is Additive Manufacturing?

Additive manufacturing (AM), also known as 3D printing, is a transformative approach to industrial production that enables the creation of lighter, stronger parts and systems. It is yet, another technological advancement made possible by the transition from analog to digital processes. In recent decades, communications, imaging, architecture and engineering have all undergone their own digital revolutions. Now, AM can bring digital flexibility and efficiency to manufacturing operations. Additive manufacturing uses data computer-aided-design (CAD) software or 3D object scanners to direct hardware to deposit material, layer upon layer, in precise geometric shapes. As its name implies, additive manufacturing adds material to create...

A Brief History Of 3D Printing

Additive manufacturing, also called 3D Printing, began in earnest in the early 1980s. The first patent application for an additive rapid prototyping technology was filed by Dr. Hideo Kodama in Japan in 1980, though he did not receive a patent due to his failure to submit the full patent specification within one year. In July of 1984, a group of French inventors filed a patent for stereolithography (SLA) 3D printing - a process in which layers are added to a part curing photopolymers with ultraviolet light lasers. The French patent was later abandoned due to Three weeks later, Chuck Hull,...
