Empowering Innovation with 3D Printing
Concept models allow you to communicate design concepts to clients, colleagues and marketers with tangible products. Small design and engineering firms extend their reach by testing more ideas and developing only the right projects. For large companies, concept modeling within departments, or even in individual cubicles, is a way to hone ideas before presenting them to decision makers.
Concept models can be used for:
- Form and fit testing
- Communication models between departments and companies
- Product research
- Tender opportunities
- Ergonomic tests
Companies are turning to 3D printing for prototyping as a cost effective way to reduce product and part development time, which is key to succeeding in the marketplace. This is especially useful to produce high quality prototypes of parts that match your design and accurately represent your final product’s functionality and performance, accelerating the time to market for new innovative products.
3D printed functional prototypes are in a class by themselves for capturing true end product realism. For performance prototypes that withstand thermal, chemical and mechanical stress, rely on durable FDM 3D printing technology. For prototypes with the accurate look and feel of your next finished product, including soft-touch parts, clear components, living hinges and shock absorption, put PolyJet-based 3D printing technology to work.
Direct Digital Manufacturing
Do it better, faster and less expensively
Additive manufacturing is changing the way the World makes everything. By enabling you to produce prototypes, tools and final parts directly from CAD data, additive manufacturing creates dramatic reductions in delivery times and production costs, so you can easily respond to customer needs and market changes. 3D Printed manufacturing solutions can be used for:
- Blow Molding
- Injection Molding
- Investment Casting
- Jigs and Fixtures
- Metal Hydroforming
- Modular Fixtures
- Molded Fiber
- Polystyrene Molds
- RTV Molding
- Sand Casting
- Spin Casting
