3D SERVICES USING MODERN 3D TECHNOLOGY
We can make anything you want with 3D printers – from home gadgets and accessories, to complex industrial pieces, prototypes and small batches.
3D printing is the process of creating three-dimensional objects from a digital (CAD) model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process in which successive layers of material are deposited in different shapes. It differs from traditional manufacturing techniques in that traditional methods mainly involve removing material by methods such as cutting or drilling (subtractive processes), whereas 3D printing involves adding material.
3D printing is used in many fields, including manufacturing, engineering, healthcare, education and hobbies. 3D printing has revolutionised the way we design, prototype and produce other complex, customised products, enabling faster and more cost-effective production.
In our DEMO centre we use 3D printers of the following technologies and brands:
- FDM (MakerBot, FlashForge and Intamsys)
- SLA/DLP (Shining3D)
In cooperation with our partners, we also provide 3D printing with the following technologies:
- 3D metal printing (Shining3D)
- SLS (Shining3D)
3D scanning is the fastest growing 3D technology. It is mainly used for reverse engineering, quality control and downstream manufacturing or 3D printing.
3D scanning is the process of digitally capturing the shape of an object using different technologies such as lasers, structured light or photogrammetry. It is a method of digitising physical objects to create a 3D model that can be viewed on a computer (CAD model). The 3D scanner captures information about the shape, size and texture of the object, which can then be used to create a digital representation of the object.
There are many applications for 3D scanning, including reverse engineering, product design, quality control, heritage preservation and medicine. In the medical field, 3D scanning can be used to create patient-specific implants or prostheses, while in the manufacturing industry it is used to create accurate digital models of existing products for modification, replication or quality control. 3D scanning is therefore an increasingly important 3D technology that helps you optimise your workflow.
In the DEMO centre we use different Shining3D scanners:
- Fully automatic
Reverse engineering is the process by which a CAD model is obtained from a 3D scanned object. It allows you to easily and quickly reproduce an object for which you do not have a 3D model. It can also be used to review the design of the building and improve or adapt it.
Reverse engineering is the process of disassembling, analysing and understanding a product by identifying its design features, functions and components. It involves working backwards from the finished product to its original design, often using different techniques.
Reverse engineering is widely used in many fields. In engineering, it is used to understand the performance of existing products, identify areas for improvement and create new products based on existing designs. In manufacturing, reverse engineering can be used to replicate existing products or parts, especially when the original design documentation is unavailable or incomplete.
Reverse engineering consists of: 3D scanning and computer-aided design (CAD) model processing
Quality control is the process used to confirm that a product or service meets certain standards or specifications. Without proper quality control, products lose their meaning. Make sure your cuts are within the tolerances you need to increase your business and profits.
A system with increased quality control is put in place in the 18th century and spurred the Industrial Revolution in the 19th century. In the beginning In the 20th century, the introduction of standards allowed manufacturers to fully integrate quality control into the production process. Today, the Fourth Industrial Revolution is underway, with artificial intelligence and 3D technologies taking the lead. This is why 3D scanning has become the fastest growing technology in the 3D world. 3D scanners significantly reduce the time taken to capture data digitally, increasing efficiency.
Quality control involves inspecting different aspects of a product to identify and address any issues or defects that may affect their quality.
Quality control is an important part of many industries, especially in the production process. The ultimate goal of quality control is to ensure that products or services meet the desired quality standards and, as a result, customer satisfaction.
Development is the engine of progress. With the right approach and experience, we can develop your product quickly and to a high quality, with the help of a team with a wide range of skills.
In an industry where things change daily and products are constantly improving, evolution is key. Fierce competition and changing consumer preferences mean that products must be of exceptional quality.
Product development is important for companies to remain competitive and innovative. It allows them to bring new and improved products to market, stay ahead of the competition and increase revenues. However, product development can also be risky and costly, involving a significant investment of time, money and resources, making effective project management, risk assessment and strategic planning essential to ensure the success of product development efforts.
We can advise you on product development or do the whole project. We also prototype and/or manufacture the product in small batches.
