Welcome to Makelab Learnings, your hub for navigating the ever-evolving world of 3D printing. Dive into insights, techniques, and innovations, where our experts demystify the intricacies of 3D printing technologies, unveil the endless possibilities of materials, and share invaluable tips and tricks.
Our founders were industrial design consultants in a past life, used 3D printing for quick prototyping, and ran into all sorts of questions and issues. They even bought their own 3D printer to bring it in-house, but only used it a few times until the first few failed prints. That’s why they built Makelab with a focus on the customer experience. Here’s what they did.
Christina Perla is the Co-Founder and CEO of Makelab. Recently she shared her expertise at NYU with an exclusive group of attendees. Now, we brought her lecture to you.
Hydrific, a venture by LIXIL, is dedicated to water conservation with Droplet as their inaugural product, set to launch in early 2024. Collaborating with Makelab, they utilized Vision Control Jetting (VCJ) technology to swiftly prototype a complex part, saving time and costs by avoiding custom O-ring tooling for field testing.
Exploring PETG and ABS plastics! We'll compare their properties for various applications, analyzing the ease of 3D printing, strength, chemical resistance, cost, speed, post-processing, and environmental impact. Also, we'll showcase real-world uses of these materials.
In this blog post, we will compare two popular materials for 3D printing: PETG and PLA, by analyzing their ease of 3D printing, strength and durability, chemical resistance, cost, printing speed, post-processing, environmental impact, and real-world examples for each 3D printing material.
