Further than just explaining preferred temperature settings, we will be taking an indepth look at advanced support and infill settings, as well as many other factors that go into making a clean and successful print.
ABS is quite unique to PLA for a few reasons. The first is the difficulty to print. Small items are quite easy, and the printer can handle ABS without any issues. The problem arises when printing large parts. Since ABS has a high shrinkage rate which causes warping, we will only print larger ABS jobs on our TAZ5 with our proprietary enclosure or on our fully enclosed 3DGenie. Read More

We have tested some very advanced materials throughout the past year from industrial grade nylons to flexible elastomers. These functional FDM materials have allowed SD3D production services to be used as a solution to demanding end-user applications. We are excited to see what 2016 will bring as material suppliers seem to be accelerating their rate of R&D. The following twelve materials are our favorite new materials of 2015. Read More
Yesterday morning Jonathan Horn of ABC 10 San Diego visited the SD3D headquarters to show an example of what can be accomplished using bitcoin and the Bitcoin network. We began accepting bitcoin for 3D printing and 3D design work nearly 2 years ago, and while customers using this payment method are few, we are a great option for anyone looking to spend their bitcoin rather than sell them.
In fact, you can read all our involvement in our Bitcoin Meets 3D Printing article from October 1st, 2013 – just about exactly two years ago.
While our employees do not get paid in bitcoin, ABC 10 was following Airbitz, a startup in downtown San Diego who does just this. Be sure to watch the segment with SD3D’s CEO David Feeney below: Read More
