3D Printing Workshop for Job Shops - Using Low-Cost 3D Printers for Production of a Product Invented In-House
Additive Manufacturing promises to be the near future of manufacturing but commercial-grade printing technology can cost more than most medium to small-sized shops can afford. To make things worse, extremely long cycle times for parts means that the only path to meaningful quantities is to buy more machines. Consumer grade printing technology can be found at prices that make the equation much more workable, but as any maker knows, this tech can be unreliable.
In this presentation, we will use a product that we developed in-house as an example to illustrate how we were able to implement low-cost, consumer-grade 3D printers to produce final parts that we ship straight off the printer’s bed to our end customers. We will share some of the strategy, design constraints, and product positioning concepts that we employed. We hope you will leave with a fresh perspective and new ideas for how you can implement Additive Manufacturing into your everyday production.
