Stratasys is a global leader in 3D printing technology and has helped many companies to grow their business, and cost-effectively streamline their product design and manufacturing processes.

“3D printing” and “additive manufacturing” refer to processes that automatically build objects layer by layer from 3D CAD/CAM data. This technology is widely used in sectors such as automotive, consumer goods, defense, manufacturing and education. Applications include building concept models, functional prototypes, factory tooling, and even finished goods.

Functional Prototyping
Prove and perfect your designs with tough, precise testing

Iterative, agile product development is the promise of advanced 3D printing. Functional prototyping with engineering thermoplastics or digital materials reveals how your next product will perform, well before you commit to production tooling.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

by admin 0 Comments

Industrial design is the use of both applied art and applied science to improve the aesthetics, design,[2] ergonomics, functionality, and/or usability of a product, and it may also be used to improve the product’s marketability and even production. The role of an industrial designer is to create and execute design solutions for problems of form, usability, physical ergonomics, marketing, brand development, and sales.[3]

Industrial design can overlap significantly with engineering design, and in different countries the boundaries of the two concepts can vary, but in general engineering focuses principally on functionality or Utility of Products whereas industrial design focuses principally on aesthetic and user-interface aspects of products. In many jurisdictions this distinction is effectively defined by credentials and/or licensure required to engage in the practice of engineering.[4] “Industrial design” as such does not overlap much with the engineering sub-discipline of industrial engineering, except for the latter’s sub-specialty of ergonomics.

Jigs and Fixtures With FDM and PolyJet

Overview
Manufacturing relies on tools, including jigs, fixtures, templates and gauges, to maintain quality and production efficiency. These manufacturing tools are used to align, assemble, clamp, hold, test and calibrate components and sub–assemblies at all stages of the manufacturing process. And although these tools are virtually invisible when production is running smoothly, their importance becomes evident when problems arise. To avoid production halts or product defects, new manufacturing tools must be rapidly designed, manufactured and deployed.
