The Accuracy Myth

Don't make the mistake of confusing
high resolution with accuracy

Users of additive manufacturing often confuse resolution, the measure of how small or fine a 3D printer can deposit material, with accuracy. However, this is not a true relationship. Accuracy refers to how well a part conforms to its design parameters and whether that precision is repeatable.

In this white paper, you'll learn key additive manufacturing considerations such as:

  • Resolution and the role it plays
  • Accuracy and why it's important
  • Repeatability and the significance of material stability
