Using a Small Format 3D Printer to Improve Your Fabrication Operation

Many of your children already know how to use a small 3D printer. News outlets are replete with stories of how unique things have been created with them to solve problems in everyday life. But did you know that a small 3D printer can solve many common problems on the shop floor? This presentation will cover useful solutions that involve: making difficult parts on a press brake with 3D printed back gauging fingers, checking tough-to measure parts with printed go/no go fixtures, forming metal parts with 3D printed plastic tools, and using a 3D printer to mistake-proof long running jobs. The presenter will provide the background of his research and experience to this new fabricating frontier.
