JuggerBot 3D has developed three techniques for material extrusion 3D printing, one of the seven categories of 3D printing recognized in the world, says Dan Fernback, co-founder.
The first technique is Fused Filament Fabrication, or FFF. The long-standing technique is great for a number of applications, Fernback says.
Fused Granulate Fabrication, or FGF, occurs when material in pellet form is extruded in a way similar to injection molding. “This allows for much faster printing with production materials,” he says.
Finally, Direct Ink Writing, or DIW, uses liquid inks that are dispensed under a controlled flow rate on a digitally defined path to create 3D models.
Each technique has its own place and purpose, Fernback says. To learn which might best suit your needs, watch the video above.
