In our latest engineering challenge video, Director of Application Engineering, Greg Paulsen, puts nine 3D printing process and material combinations to the test. Can they withstand continuous, repetitive motion? Watch now to see which parts will vibe and survive.

Here's what else you need to know about the test:

  • Each 3D printed part is 4.00" x 0.75" x 0.08" and is inspired by ASTM test sample standards
  • The parts were printed in fused deposition modeling, selective laser sintering, HP Multi Jet Fusion, stereolithography, and Carbon DLS
  • The saw's rate of reciprocation is based on 50% power to the saw (half trigger pull)
  • The jig holds the saw blade and allows the 3D printed sample part to attach perpendicular to the saw motion
  • The test sample has a bolt mounted to the top to provide added weight and vibration intensity to the part
