3D PRINTING FOR
IMPROVE PRODUCT DESIGN
WITH ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING IN-HOUSE
Shorten product development and design loops from weeks to hours with Additive Manufacturing by producing detailed, high-quality prototypes directly in your own workspace.
Utilising Additive manufacturing technology in-house allows designers and engineers to:
> Evaluate early-stage designs and ideas as many times as necessary, at low cost, with low risk of failure
> Produce prototypes and design iterations in a matter of hours
> Check sizes, shapes, proportions and aesthetics
> Evaluate form, fit, function and manufacturability under real-life conditions
> Complete final product design and testing before manufacture or tooling
REDUCE COSTS AND TIMESCALES
Develop iterations rapidly at reduced costs and timescales, with low risk of failure. Reduce high costs and lengthy lead times from outsourcing.
UNLOCK DESIGN FREEDOM
Use Additive Manufacturing technologies to experiment with design, with the freedom to make mistakes, discover better designs and print complex geometries.
Compare the smallest changes to products across multiple iterations, in a number of hours.
Remove the need to manage external suppliers in your design and development processes, reducing the need for purchase orders, supplier management and purchasing involvement.
Keep knowledge and proprietary information safely in-house.
“The use of 3D printing in the business has increased greatly since the initial development of new fittings and re-engineering of old, enabling us to use printed components in robotic prototypes and even in sub-component installation parts where the investment in mould-tools was not justified by the quantities forecast.”
Development Engineer, Radius Systems
PRODUCT DESIGN FOR ENGINEERING
Produce rapid prototypes for tooling and moulds, or functional prototypes for R&D and product testing using composites or metals with Markforged 3D printers.
Create high accuracy, fine detailed models
with Formlabs Stereolithography (SLA) or Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) 3D printers.
Produce designs in engineering-grade materials for robust testing.
“We are so impressed with the user experience and the results, that we have a suite of 3D printers running various resins to add capacity and flexibility to our prototyping output.”
Creative Director, Matter
ULTRAFAST PROTOTYPING FOR WHEN TIME TO MARKET IS CRITICAL
The Nexa3D NXE400 uses LSPc (Lubricant Sublayer Photo-curing, a form of SLA) technology to deliver speed, accuracy and durable parts.
Printing at 1 Z centimetre per minute, you can produce complete models in a matter of minutes or hours for immediate design feedback.
