Krishna and Ram are motorcycle enthusiasts and they love to experiment with the bike engines in their free time. Krishna owns a Royal Enfield 1983 vintage bike and the duo planned on redesigning the bike’s engine to customize it for the modern day bikes. Their goal was to improve the efficiency of bike engines by leveraging the best features of the vintage bikes with customization. They aspire to start up in the same arena, once they succeed in their trials.
For redesigning the engine, they needed a model of the engine to which they can make requisite changes. They have opted for 3D scanning over conventional methods for this purpose and it is an appropriate choice. Conventionally, obtaining the model of the engine involves sand casting or mould casting techniques. These die designing processes are tedious and extracting the dimensions of the component is difficult. Traditional methods require a lot of skill and effort to accurately sand cast the object, implement the changes in the model and fabricate the object with required alterations.
These drawbacks and delays can be overcome by 3D scanning the object. We have used our in-house Artec Eva 3D scanner for 3D scanning the engine. Artec Eva is reputed as an ideal choice for reverse engineering medium sized objects such as alloy wheels, automotive components and even 3D scanning humans. This white light hand held 3D scanner easily gave a digitized model of the engine. The fused and texturized 3D design model is then provided to the clients. They could apply necessary changes on to the model and achieve the efficacy they wanted. These are one among many of our satisfied customers.
3D scanning reduces the cost, labour and dexterity involved in conventional die designing methods and greatly helps in reverse engineering the products. Implementing design changes and refining till the desired output is obtained is not only easy and accurate with digitized 3D design models, but also saves a lot of time. The intricate designs in a component can be captured precisely using 3D scanning.
We, at Build Protos strive to solve the problems associated with conventional product development methods with disruptive solutions. We are looking forward to help the innovators endeavoring to ameliorate lives using technology.
CES 2016, conducted early on this month has left few companies like XYZprinting very happy,
The 3D printers’ manufacturer originally based out of Taiwan has launched many new products at the infamous consumer electronics trade show. Two consumer and three professional-grade 3D printers (expanding into inkjet, DLP, and full-color binder jet printing) were lunched at the show. Out of all the products rolled out at the Sands Expo Convention Center, da vinci Mini grabbed all the attention even among high-grade printers.
On 7th January, Reviewed.com (a division of USA TODAY) experts honored the newly unveiled da Vinci Mini with the CES Editors’ Choice Award, praising XYZprinting’s compact 3D printer for being the most affordable on the consumer market. The Reviewed.com staff stated “while it doesn’t solve the issues that continue to challenge many consumer-level printers, it’s small, affordable, and will let you indulge your passion without taking up loads of space—or breaking the bank.” The da Vinci Mini was appreciated by Reviewed.com for its high performance capability.
Simon Shen, CEO, XYZprinting said, “We are excited to be recognized by the Reviewed.com/USA Today CES Editors’ Choice Awards again in 2016. XYZprinting is dedicated to bringing affordable and approachable 3D printing technology to the masses, and this award gives us validation that we are doing just that.”
XYZprinting team is keen on approaching 3D printing from every angle possible to become one of the most dexterous and affordable 3D printing companies in the market. XYZprinting plans to release the da Vinci Mini sometime during the third quarter of 2016, and might sell off well because of the boost it gained at CES 2016. XYZprinting is planning to bring this miniaturized 3D printer to as many customers as possible with the low price point and good reviews pouring in.
After it had a rough year with a patent lawsuit from Memjet and laying off over 3million employees, HPInc. Is planning to get back onto the game. HP is going to put up their 3D printed products for showcase and present videos on their 3D printing process at Inside 3D printing Singapore, produced by MecklerMedia organized at Sunec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre on 26th and 27th January.
Apart from the display booth, HP is going to host a seminar focussing on the potential of 3D printing technology and how HP is planning to influence manufacturing ecosystem. The discussion will also include the history of HP, their past innovations in the inkjet printing industry and their plans to make similar remarkable changes in 3D printing industry. SLM Solutions, UCT Additive Manufacturing Center Singapore, and others are among the sponsoring and exhibiting companies at Inside 3D Printing Singapore. The conference itself is trying to expand by collaborating with the RoboUniverse (robotics industry) and the Virtual Reality Summit. Anyone attending the Inside 3D printing conference will have access to both these partnering events where tech companies can showcase their products and interact with one another.
Alan Meckler, the CEO and chairman of MecklerMedia, “By offering attendees the opportunity to seamlessly explore 3D printing, robotics, and virtual reality at one event, we aim to break down barriers and encourage invention and innovation that highlights these industries’ synergies. Inside 3D Printing, alongside RoboUniverse and the Virtual Reality Summit, is the premier disruptive technology event in Singapore.”
Inside 3D Printing conference is getting bigger by each year and is gravitating the attention of fanatics hoping to see some interesting products and waiting to know the future trends in 3D printing industry. We would like to see if HP Inc. plays a significant role in it.
