White Paper: Manufacturing & Prototyping

How Unique Cable and Connector Solutions are Taking 3D Printing to New Levels


Additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, is decades old but the industry today is quite challenging. 3D printing enables rapid prototyping, quick-turn designs, and the ability to quickly scale in industrial, consumer, and high-risk markets. The industry enables what was only dreamed of years ago.

This paper begins with a teardown of a consumer desktop 3D printer, focusing on answers to questions such as how to make the most sufficient design for a particular end product, and how to move from power to the control to subsystems. How are all these subsystems synched together? How does the printer interact with the user — is it through a touchscreen, switches, or other inputs? How does it interact with the outside world — through Wi-Fi connectivity?
