In this FreeCAD vs Fusion 360 comparison review, we’re going to explore the features of these two amazing computer-aided design software. There is a wide range of 3D modeling software available (previously covered here) and both FreeCAD and Fusion 360 are widely recognized as great tools for creating incredibly detailed designs for 3D printing.

So which software tool is better?

In this comparison, we will be exploring the main features of each software, the user interface, supported file types, and ease of use. We’ll be comparing the minimum system requirements of each and exploring the toolsets and extensions that you can use. In addition, we’ll be showing you some of the alternative software available to design the products that you want to 3D print.

Main Diff

Creality has always been coming out with a 3D printer that has good print quality at prices that you will love. There are a lot of Ender models out there, with the company coming out with Pro and Plus versions of different models. The Creality Ender 3 and Ender 5 are two of the company’s best known 3D printers.

How does one compare to the other? Which one is the better printer for your needs?

Main Differences Between Creality Ender 3 vs Ender 5

The Main Differences Between Creality Ender 3 vs Ender 5

  • The Ender 5 has a bigger build volume at 8.7 by 8.7 by 11.8 inches, whereas Ender 3 only has a build volume of 8.7 by 8.7 by 9.8 inches.
  • The Ender 5 is easy to set up and takes only around half an hour to finish the assembly with an easy to understand user guide, whereas the Ender 3 takes significantly longer with an estimated assembly time of around two to three hours.
  • The Ender 5 uses an MK10 hot end, whereas Ender 3 uses an earlier vers

It’s 2027 and you’ve lost a tooth in a hockey game. Today the replacement process can be extremely expensive and some patients report not being entirely satisfied with the shape, size, color, or fit of an artificial tooth. But five years from now the most probable way such a scenario will play out will be a visit to the dentist for a scan of some kind before a 3D printer creates a perfect fit made of incredibly resilient composite materials, and at a price that’s a fraction of what it costs today. These predictions for the future of dentistry are based on what analysts see happening due to developments in additive manufacturing. Additive manufacturing (AM) or additive layer manufacturing (ALM) are simply [industry names for 3D printing](https://www.twi-global.com/technical-knowledge/faqs/what-is-additive-manufacturing), the computer process that controls the depositing of material – usually in layers – into three-dimensional objects. AM and ALM tech has grown at warp speed, and prices for the machinery have come down dramatically – and this in combo equals a whole new world.
