Our Process

We start with your concept/model, and then we make it…

Digital

  • Get 3D model (STEP or STL formats) of part(s)

  • Part Analysis and Cost Estimates based on your model

  • Optimize model using Design for Additive Manufacturing (DFAM) principles.

Physical

  • Print cost effective prototypes

  • Validate physical outcomes and attributes associated with design

  • Iterate as required to achieve optimized outcomes

  • Develop project plan and budget (from prototype to fully scaled production)

Strong

  • Select appropriate materials, platforms, and settings for fabrication

  • Post Processing of 3D printed parts

Work

  • Functional testing of the finished parts (both real world and/or simulations)

  • Iterate process of design, print, and testing as required

  • Develop strategies for scaled production

Using this method, we deliver cost effective & functional commercial quality 3D printed parts!

Hybrid AM and Sustainable Manufacturing

By |December 9th, 2019|Categories: 3D Printing, Hybrid Additive Manufacturing|

In this interview with Rob Thiessen, founder of 3’D Revolution Technologies, Inc., we explore the importance of Hybrid Additive Manufacturing and its impact. Q: What is Hybrid AM? A: A simple definition of Hybrid AM would be: a method of additive manufacturing making use of multi-material printing, combined machines, or combined processes and platforms. Hybrid Manufacturing itself is not new, but its implications for additive manufacturing represents an important segment of the digital manufacturing revolution now underway.    Q: So does that mean Hybrid AM combines the outputs from different 3D printers? A: Yes, but it doesn’t stop there. Hybrid AM can combine all types of processes, including traditional manufacturing and off-the-shelf components as needed, by merging them into a single, optimized production workflow. 3D Printing really helps to facilitate this process in many ways.   Q: Is there such [...]

Polish Electric Motor Cycle

By |July 18th, 2019|Categories: 3D Printing|Tags: , , , , |

Designer Piotr Krzyczkowski created an environmentally and economically friendly motorbike for urban environments – without the help of 3D printing, this wouldn’t have been possible. Piotr Krzyczkowski is a designer who was inspired by mopeds in Milan to develop an economical, eco-friendly motorbike for city dwellers in Poland to use. As a result, Falectra is the first Polish electric motorbike brand and its motorbikes will be on the road by next year. Click here to read more...

Shawcor Case Study – Composite Printing

By |June 13th, 2019|Categories: Uncategorized|

SHAWCOR (Oil & Gas Industry), used their Mark2 Composite (CFF) printer to create 53 unique 3D printed parts for replacement components on a pick & place machine in their Calgary Facility. They have easily paid for the printer itself with savings of over $27,000 CAD (~$20,000 USD) on replacement parts alone. Click to view PDF Article.
