How We Use 3D Printing
The production line for a large order has gone much smoother with the help of a 3DC printed tool that guides the process of trimming and shaping over 200 trays for Skycast Solutions Inc.
Made of fluorescent yellow ABSplus-P430 material, our HRF (hand router fixture) gives us standardized parts in a short amount of time.
Quickly Produce Custom Parts
3D printing can be faster, more flexible, and less expensive when producing relatively small quantities of parts giving engineers and designers the ability to produce parts and concept models immediately!
Test Functionality & Design
3D printing allows for multiple design prototypes and concept models that help to verify design ergonomics and function elements that may not always be identifiable in a CAD drawing so you can discover and fix errors early.
See how Everett High School students partnered with 3DC to practice their engineering skills and test the fit, form, and function of a design:
Shortened design cycles lead to reduced costs. 3D printing requires fewer tools and complex parts. Less manufacturing time equals lower costs.
Fused Deposition Modeling™ (FDM) helps reduce tooling costs by thousands per part. See how the simple FDM printing process cuts manufacturing time:
Quality Production Parts
Usable, finished parts can be produced for low volume production runs or single part projects. Parts can be made to fit different strength requirements and specifications.
Seattle 3D printing company, 3D Composites verifies the quality and conformity of products during all phases of the manufacturing process. Learn more about 3DC:
