A Closer Look at 3D Printing with Inserts
Advanced processes in 3D printing, such as inserts, core modeling, and multiple materials, can expand the capabilities of a 3D printer.
Incorporating non-printed elements, such as fasteners, electronics, switches, sensors, or even metal substructures, into a printed part
expands the spectrum of usability—resulting in fully functional models and prototypes. 3D Printing with inserts is a key advantage for using FFF 3D printing, as inserts are not practical with SLA, SLS, or Polyjet.
For example. metal strips are embedded in this chair for added strength.
