Strain Gage Application to 3D Printed Models (Plastics)

With 3D printing, engineering designs can be prototyped very quickly.  As with most prototypes, the questions of form, function, and suitability for a purpose can be answered.  Strain gages can be used on 3D models to help answer questions related to the strength of the design.

In this Micro-Measurements® iNotes™ video, Jim Johnson shows correct installation of a precabled strain gage to a 3D printed plastic article, provided courtesy of Futek Advanced Sensors, Inc.  Micro-Measurements® offers all of the materials necessary for sucessful strain measurements, including training.   See our current training program schedule:
