3D Printing, or additive manufacturing as it known in the industry, is a process that creates a physical object from a digital design.
There are different 3D printing technologies and materials you can print with, but all are based on the same principle: a digital model is turned into a solid three-dimensional physical object by adding material layer by layer.
3D Modeling is a method of creating Computer Aided Drawing (CAD) files that are electronic files that clearly communicate your design to everyone else involved in creating your object.
The type of modeling and the required skillsets are dependant on the type of object that is required.
3D scanning is a way to capture a physical object’s exact size and shape into the computer world as a digital 3-dimensional representation.
3D scanners measure fine details and capture free-form shapes to quickly generate highly accurate point clouds. 3D scanning is ideally suited to the measurement and inspection of contoured surfaces and complex geometries which require massive amounts of data for their accurate description and where doing this is impractical with the use of other measurement methods.
Short Run Production
Additive Manufacturing isn’t just for prototypes anymore. Because parts can be produced in real materials, they can be used in real applications.
- Fill gaps in current production shortfalls
- Help get a new part to market while hard tooling is still being produced
- Produce complex, low volume parts where traditional manufacturing is cost prohibitive.
