Rapid Prototyping

3D Printing for Rapid Prototyping The implementation of 3D printed prototyping has reduced the cycle time for each design iteration, so reducing drastically time-to-market. We provide full-scale functionality in prototyping, eliminating the need to scale down or print multiple parts that require assembly. Key Advantages: • Large printing areas: from 2.8m x 1.4m x 1.4m…

3d printing of continuous-fiber composites by in-nozzle impregnation

Abstract We have developed a method for the three-dimensional (3D) printing of continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastics based on fused-deposition modeling. The technique enables direct 3D fabrication without the use of molds and may become the standard next-generation composite fabrication methodology. A thermoplastic filament and continuous fibers were separately supplied to the 3D printer and the fibers…

New Very Fast 3D Printing Technologies

TRADITIONAL 3D printed parts are notoriously inconsistent. Their mechanical properties vary depending on the direction the parts were printed due to the layer-by-layer approach. Limitations of size: 3D printing technology is currently limited by size constraints. Very large objects are still not feasible when built using 3D printers. Limitations of raw material: At present, 3D…

Why a 3D Printed House?

People’s Style of Building a House In the Design Phase… You make a sketch, then erase everything and start to build without a plan and blueprint. The result? Quite different than expected… usually a much bigger house than you need and costs are at least double! Classical Style… You build brick plus concrete heavy construction,…
