Tips and Tricks / / SmartQuote

  1. Use high quality setting to export STLs from Solidworks, Rhino or other CAD software — adjust STL export settings for high quality to ensure better accuracy and smoother curves.

  2. Specify the orientation at which your part should be printed — please include clear instructions in the comments box and a Fathom expert will follow-up with you to discuss.

  3. Design wall thicknesses, pegs, fins and other features greater than 1mm for best results — all features are dependent on geometry and subject to review by a Fathom expert.

  4. Opt for a sparse fill on FDM parts to reduce overall weight of part — be sure to include “sparse fill” in the comments section and a Fathom expert will follow-up.

  5. Design any splits, voids or gaps larger than 0.6mm — this will prevent material from fusing together during the 3D printing process.

  6. Consider PolyJet for the best surface finish on small to medium sized parts — for larger parts, or where surface finish is less of a concern versus strength or durability, choose FDM.

  7. Consider additive and traditional options for parts larger than 200mm that require smooth surface finishes — Stereolithography and CNC machining should both be considered.
