Learn how designers and manufacturers aim high with 3D technology
The increasing prevalence of 3D printing has been accompanied by increasing utilization of these technologies within the realm of Canadian Academia
Toronto’s York University School of Engineering 3D print their prototypes and realize a 30 to 50% cost saving over traditional CNC prototyping.
Promolding specializes in creating high-tech plastic parts using 3D printed injection molds providing lead-time savings of 93% over traditional molding methods.
Jigs tooled from metal are both heavy and difficult to iterate. Ricoh Company, Ltd., use a Stratasys F900 machine to create lighter jigs at a reduced cost.
Trek uses an Objet 3D Printer to create prototypes. The system builds colour parts with clear, tinted and flexible components, all in one print job.
Innodesign brings new products to life with photorealistic 3D printing using a Stratasys J750. They 3D print models in multi-materials with as many colours as their designers can assign
Modelzium is an architectural modeling firm based in Seoul, Korea whose customers include many South Korean architectural firms. The Challenge Traditionally, Modelzium used manual techniques and CNC machines to produce architectural models. However, this process required painful compromises. “We would often omit some parts that required fine details, such as spheres, oval shapes or thin parts,”…
Toronto Architectural Modeling Firm Builds Scale Model of Stunning Abu Dhabi Edifice with 3D Printing. After building designs have been conceptualized and before ground is broken, real estate developers often transform their two-dimensional blueprints into three-dimensional scale models. For Toronto-based architectural modeling firm, Peter McCann Architectural Models Inc. (PMAMI), replicating some of the world’s tallest…
By adding SOLIDWORKS Simulation analysis and SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation fluid flow analysis software to its SOLIDWORKS Premium design solution, Optar has reduced the time and costs of design simulation and validation, while improving the performance of its air intake filter housing designs. Optar Technologies Limited specializes in the design and manufacture of air intake filter…
