Today's additive materials can do so much more than prototyping. The number of materials available for additive manufacturing has skyrocketed, with prices falling continually. Still, many manufacturers cite reservations about materials as the reason they’re not using additive for production. This webinar will bust common additive myths, provide a framework for replacing traditional polymers with additive polymers, and present a guide to the mechanical properties of common polymers used in additive manufacturing. You’ll learn how to select a suitable material for your next additive project, whether you want to re-make an existing part or create something entirely new.

Primary Topics:
• Guide to traditional polymers for additive polymers
• Understanding mechanical properties of today's additive materials
• How to select suitable materials for your project
