Production Process

3D printing could provide users with final parts in just a few days to verify the design concept, or put directly them into use , and also make the time to market faster than competitors. 3D printing technology plays a very important role in the production process. It can quickly obtain a product model, and then use the model for rapid production. The method is very flexible and efficient, effectively reduces the cost of molding and production waste, get products in very short time, achieving a multiplier effect.

Small Batch Production

3D printing small batch production has so many advantages: high flexibility, fast printing, low cost, high precision, and good surface quality. It is especially suitable for small batch production of products such as art, cultural creativity, film and television animation, and instrument parts. It overcomes the problems of high cost, low efficiency, and unstable quality caused by traditional manufacturing such as manual, CNC, injection molding. 

Appearance Verification

3D printer can achieve rapid prototyping which is used for the appearance verification, this is very important in the early stages of industrial product design. Inputting 3D data into a 3D printer can directly print out a three-dimensional product model, making the design more intuitive. 3D printing technology greatly reduces the manufacturing time, unlike traditional open-mold manufacturing or hand-made, it can quickly and effectively help companies find product design defects at an early stage.

Design Verification

Design verification includes assembly verification and function verification. It can quickly verify the product structure to check whether the product’s design is reasonable and whether the functional test can meet the actual needs of the product. The use of 3D printing technology can accelerate the product development cycle and avoidproblems of long time and high cost due to mold opening.

In traditional manufacturing methods, the investment and development of molds have a very high cost to enterprises, and the emergence of 3D printing technology brings shortcuts to the home appliance industry. Through 3D printing rapid prototyping, R&D engineers can quickly convert the three-dimensional model data designed by computer into a real object. This process is ten times faster than traditional production methods. 3D printing technology is mainly used to product proofing in the product development stage, such as appearance verification, assembly verification, and small batch production. It reduces mold costs throughout the whole manufacturing process, shortens product development time and accelerates the pace of new product launches. With the improvement of material properties and the improvement of 3D printing technology, 3D printing technology will be more and more applied to the production of final parts of home appliances. In the future, 3D printing technology will develop towards large-scale products.

Medical Development

3D printing provides an excellent solution for Precision Medicine. 3D printing technology can synthesize a three-dimensional model based on the patient's CT or MRI data, and then print the case model through a 3D printer, and quickly obtain a medical model in a very short time. It is used in case analysis and surgical guides to achieve the purpose of visual design, minimally invasive operation, individualized reconstruction and precise treatment. 3D printing technology provides clinicians with more intuitive and comprehensive preoperative planning and surgical simulation, which maximizes the accuracy of surgery and effectively reduces the risk of surgery. In addition, the value of medical 3D printers for orthopedic insoles, bionic hands, hearing aids and other rehabilitation equipment is not only customized, but also mainly reflected in the replacement of traditional production methods by accurate and efficient digital manufacturing technology, which greatly shortens the production cycle and ensures getting products in the shortest time.

The emergence of cultural and creative 3D printing technology will bring huge changes to the design and development of cultural and creative products, and it will also bring a new development opportunity. It breaks the boundary between manufacturers and consumers. Almost everyone can be a designer and maker. 3D printing gives ordinary people the ability to manufacture, releases the creative impulse of individual users, changes the privileges of only a few people in the past inventing and creating, and realizes the individualized design thinking and expression needs of ordinary people, and truly achieves the creativity of the whole people. 3D printing enables this collective wisdom to be maximized and utilized, and will promote the creative design expression of cultural creative products to present more diversified, popular, and liberal characteristics.

Architecture Application

Applying 3D printing technology to the research and development process of auto parts can quickly verify the working principle and feasibility of complex parts, which not only saves the process of mold development, but also reduces time and capital investment. The research and development cycle of traditional auto parts is usually more than 45 days, while 3D printing can complete the development and verification process of parts in 1-7 days, which can greatly improve the research and development efficiency of new products. Moreover, no mold is required in the process of developing parts by 3D printing, which can save a lot of costs. At present, 3D printing is used in automobile R&D and trial production of parts and components embodied in automobile grilles, automobile dashboards, air conditioning pipes, intake manifolds, engine hoods, decorative parts, car lights, car tires, etc.
