The evolution of 3D printing has seen a rapid growth in the number of companies adopting the technology. The applications and use cases vary across industries, but broadly include tooling aids, visual and functional prototypes — and even end parts.As the potential applications for 3D printing increase, companies are beginning to find ways to create new business models and opportunities with the technology.
3D printing is a fundamentally different way of producing parts compared to traditional subtractive (CNC machining) or formative (Injection molding) manufacturing technologies.In 3D printing, no special tools are required (for example, a cutting tool with certain geometry or a mold). Instead the part is manufactured directly onto the built platform layer-by-layer, which leads to a unique set of benefits.
The CoE has teamed up with the world’s leading 3D equipment manufacturing company Stratasys, Catia by Dassault Systemes & Artec 3D to offer Institutions, organizations and MSMEs a facility to create designs for their products or reverse engineer designs from products. Experts designers are available for consulting, advisory & design services.
