For manufacturers, maximizing production speed while maintaining high part quality is critical for success. Jigs and fixtures are used to make manufacturing and assembly processes simpler and more reliable, reducing cycle times and improving worker safety. In this white paper, FormLabs explains the basic principles and concepts of fixture and jig design, looks at how to adapt features typical to machined fixtures for success with 3D printing and discusses how to leverage the unique benefits of stereolithography (SLA) materials to cut fabrication costs and reduce lead times.
