How to Save on Energy Costs When Using FDM 3D Printing Technology

Energy prices never get lower, and with global climate change, those prices will likely only increase. And although FDM® 3D printing technology offers cost efficiencies compared with traditional manufacturing, like any industrial equipment, it consumes energy, which costs money. However, there are ways to reduce your printer’s energy cost footprint, and they’re relatively easy to implement. This solution brief will show you how to lower your FDM printers’ energy consumption and, as a result, your energy bill. Here's what you'll learn:

  • How good design techniques lower energy consumption
  • The benefits of replacing support material with model material
  • Enabling automatic energy saving mode
  • Next-level tips and other energy management options
