How Do 3D Prototype Printers Work?

January 31st, 2013|Uncategorized|

3D prototype printers are very sophisticated pieces of machinery that are able to create incredibly detailed 3D models and prototypes. At their core, they are still printers, and they function in many ways similar to the digital printers that people are familiar with. To start, the printer is sent an initial design. From the design, [...]

Creating More Lifelike Models

January 31st, 2013|Uncategorized|

In our last blog, we explained the technology used to create a basic 3D model or prototype. Taking that technology a step further allows for products to be printed in different colors with different levels of flexibility and resemblance to real life. Instead of laying down one type of resin in each layer, some 3D [...]

Innovative Features Set 3D Prototypes Apart from Other Models

January 28th, 2013|Uncategorized|

There are several features that help push 3D prototypes over the top and make them incredibly useful. Here are several of the most notable features: The prototypes can come with snap-fit assembly, allowing you to order complex models and prototypes that you can break down and reassemble for demonstrations. These help better illustrate complex concepts [...]

Prototypes Aren’t Just For Show

January 28th, 2013|Uncategorized|

A common misconception about 3D prototypes is that they are just for show, and you need to wait to test the part until you can use a material that is more durable. 3D prototypes aren't just made from cheap, easily broken plastic, however. They are made from a type of nylon material that is durable [...]

3D Printing and the Media… finally getting it right!

January 28th, 2013|Uncategorized|

Last week we received a call from CBC News to ask our take on 3D Printing and where it's going. Like all our interviews, we pointed out the benefits of rapid prototyping and how great it is for those interested in proving out their design before manufacturing or for short runs as well as testing [...]
