Review and in-depth analysis of product and project requirements, solutions idea generation, and the development of a detailed project plan.
Project Management, Briefing & Co-Ordination
The internal project team and external client meetings, progress updates and follow-ups on the project.
3D Modelling – Development
Development and 3D Modelling of a new product based on customer requirements.
3D Modelling – File Optimization
Existing product file optimization. A full review of the product to eliminate file errors, overlapping surfaces, ensure correct file resolution, apply hollowing as required, and correct orientation for consistent print quality.
3D Modelling – Product Adaptation & Re-Engineering
Existing product re-engineering or adaptation for 3D Printing production.
Prototype Testing & Validation
Rapid prototyping and validation of design to ensure functionality, strength & appearance of the printed sample against the customer requirements.
Orient the product within the production build based on customer requirements to achieve desired appearance, strength, and accuracy.
Nest the products within the production build area to achieve the maximum output.
Design Production Build
Printing of product prototypes to fully validate the parts.
Product Development & Implementation
Add On Services
Simulations by applying required force over the specific areas on the 3D model to analyze the deflection of material within the 3D environment.
Conversion of the 3D model into three main 2D views, adding overall and critical dimensions, including tolerances.
Development of renders or visualizations of the product to demonstrate its appearance, features and functionality.
SURFACE ROUGHNESS TEST
Measurement of finished surface roughness.
GLOSS TEST & ANALYSIS
Measurement of finished surface gloss.
SHORE HARDNESS TEST
Measurement or shore hardness for softness and flexibility level.
We work with both suppliers and customers across a wide range of industries, so we understand the challenges and capabilities for both sides.
IMPARTIAL TECHNOLOGY KNOWLEDGE
The technology and the solutions we offer to our clients are based on their performance and application for volume production.
We strive for collaborative development with our clients to create new or improved solutions and bring value for the end consumer.
