You would remember that in our last discussion we talked about the various attributes that you should look for when you are planning to purchase 3D printer. As for the application of 3D scanning and 3D printing, it is important to select the perfect equipment for completion of the job that you are required to perform. We would continue with our discussion so as to guide you into purchasing the perfect instrument.
For pre production
When you are considering printing technology together with 3D scanning in pre production, you need t be sure of the quality of the device and its level of performance. Pre production includes the manufacturing which takes place prior to a product’s large scale orders. Thus, if you are desirous of doing a just a little run, it could be really expensive performing the task without the use of traditional methods. However, when have already invested in 3D scanner and printer, printing becomes and easier process. When you think of bringing about some physical changes, you require scanning the components. You can thus create new models in just a few days, than weeks that would otherwise go in sending the items back for manufacturing. The time between phase of pre production and launch of the product is thus reduced.
Digital Geometric Design
Traditional manufacturing is not always appropriate in the case of some designs. This is the only reason why value is placed with digital 3D scanning and 3D printing technologies. You can also create such designs on computer that do not have to be geometrically limited. Objects become more intricate and complex than when they are produced in large numbers or in masses. Moreover, making the objects does not require the hand to labour. These possibilities give issuance to the items which are more functional and more detailed. One additional benefit is that less quantity of waste is produced. As it is that the material is laid down just in the way it is used, the quantity of waste production is reduced to a great extent. Money is thus saved on materials, on labour, and practically, from the vantage point of manufacturing.
The digital design applications include jewellery, medical instruments, dental devices, and lot more. In our next session, we would continue with the discussion of the aspects of the technology of 3D scanning. The process, though appears a little complicated in the beginning, is actually quite straightforward.
