You can now 3D print your parts with Fusion360’s new slicer! Is it worth using?

You can now slice your 3D prints directly in Fusion360, and their slicer actually has a few really nice features. But should you completely switch over to just slicing through Fusion360? Let’s check it out. Okay, I think this has been hardly a surprise to anyone: Fusion360 is already the preferred way of modelling parts for 3D printing for a huge number of you and they’ve also had really good CAM for milling and turning integrated into the software for quite a while. So now, there’s slicing in there asContinue reading

Why 3D printers can’t be CNC mills

Why 3D printers can't be CNC millsWatch this video on YouTube Hey, how’s it going, everyone? Have you ever wondered why 3D printers and actual CNC machines seem to be so similar, but rarely you ever see anyone successfully using a 3D printer as a milling machine and vice-versa? Well, today we’re going to look at why that is and maybe at what a compromise could look like to handle both!

What you need to know about Copyright, Patents, Trademarks and Open Source!Watch this video on YouTube As it turns out, copyright has a lot less power in the 3D printing space than I thought… Intellectual property has many faces – if you don’t know about them, it’s trivial to infringe on someone else’s rights. Here are the most important things to know about Copyright, Trademarks, Patents and how Open Source fits in.
