As 2021 draws to a close, we like to look back and highlight some of the top 3D printing news articles and videos we've shared over the last year.
In April, during their Experience Stratasys Manufacturing event, Stratasys unveiled three brand new 3D printers: the Origin One, a 3D printer that uses proprietary P3 (Programmable Photo Polymerization) technology, the H350, which uses SAF (Selective Absorption Fusion) technology, and the F770 an affordable FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling) system capable of producing large, complex parts.

In December, GoEngineer announced the acquisition of the Stratasys 3D Printing Sales and Support business of Proto3000 as of October 15, 2021.
Stratasys added a new Open Material Option for Fortus 450 users. The Stratasys material ecosystem now consists of three tiers, Preferred, Validated, and Open. This new option will allow Fortus 450 users to use third-party material options that have not been tested and validated by Stratasys.

Although 3D printing is only one piece of the puzzle, the Stratasys F370 and J850 were key players in this customer project that involved reverse engineering a Buick Riviera Coach light. A HandySCAN Black Elite was used to 3D scan the part, then reverse engineered using Geomagic Design X, CAD modifications were performed in SOLIDWORKS, and the finished model was printed using both FDM and PolyJet technology.
A much-anticipated release in 2021 was the Stratasys J35 Pro, an affordable multi-material, desktop PolyJet 3D printer. This office-friendly, user-friendly system is capable of producing small, delicate models to fully-functional engineering prototypes.

When GoEngineer added the XM200C from Xact Metal to the 3D printing lab at Headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah - we couldn’t wait to show it off! The XM200C is a metal laser powder bed fusion system designed to bring low-cost, professional metal printing into a lab space.
When a devastating flood ripped through mid-Michigan after two dams collapsed, students from Mid Michigan College’s Phi Theta Kappa (PTK) began their research to investigate the cause and help prevent future floods from devastating their community, and others as well. After conducting their research, they believed a 3D topographical map of Gladwin County and the surrounding waterways would be extremely beneficial. GoEngineer helped the students create their map with the use of 3D printing and FDM technology.

In early January, both GrabCAD Print and Insight received updates. One of those updates was for adaptive slicing. Adaptive slice is available for 0.0070in (0.1778mm) slice height and 0.0100in (0.2540mm) slice height. It works with all FDM materials and for several Stratasys FDM 3D printers including the F270, F370, Fortus 450, F770, and F900.
