Manufacturing & Prototyping
3D Printing Studios now has Large Scale Commercial 3D Printers capable of producing thousands of parts per day.
Whilst 3D printing has traditionally been seen as an efficient method of prototyping, advancements in materials and production quality means that additive manufacturing has seen an increase in use for the production of end-use goods.
Australian Manufacturing Companies are now looking at Local Suppliers for the production of their parts. This is due in part to the major disruption of their supply chain due to the CoronaVirus Pandemic.
Whilst traditional production methods are still used for mass manufacturing, the more niche markets are turning to 3D printing as a way of producing large quantities (by boutique market standards) as the cost remains lower than the often unapproachable investment of tooling.
Another use of 3D printing is to create plastic moulds, although they won’t last forever these can be an efficient small scale production method and allow for a means of testing before large scale manufacturing. This ensures the accuracy of parts and moulds before spending copious amounts on metal tools.
Below are some of the Manufactured parts we produce, these are functional end-use parts not prototypes.
