Real Challenge Rapid prototyping has become a standard practice in product development. At the BMW AG plant in Regensburg, Germany, FDM (fused deposition modeling) continues to be an important component in vehicle design prototyping. But moving beyond prototyping, BMW is extending the application of FDM to other areas and functions, including direct digital manufacturing. [...]
For additive manufacturing applications where surface finish is important but volumes are too high for hand-finishing, I’ve long suspected that mass finishing would work. This time-tested method of polishing parts by the batch is traditionally used on metal components, so I set to work experimenting on Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) parts. After much testing with various mass-finishing [...]
