INDUSTRIES: CONSUMER PRODUCTS

For designers, graphic artists, and marketing teams, successfully taking a new idea to market often depends on speed. Simulating the look and feel of a final product early in the product development lifecycle can go a long way to proving your idea to key stakeholders. We understand the hurdles in consumer manufacturing and have the expertise not only to help you build unique, customized products, but to develop whole new business models. And when you’re ready to go into full-scale production, you can trust our experience in additive manufacturing, Urethane Casting, Tooling, and Injection Molding to efficiently meet your requirements.

APPLICATIONS

Consumer Electronics

3D printing is ideal for producing detailed consumer electronics used to examine aesthetics and functionality early on in the product development life cycle. Turn to PolyJet to create realistic models of your product incorporating flexible and rigid components and multiple colors into one print. Or test the fit, form, and function of your design with static dissipative material from FDM.

Sporting Goods

3D printing is the perfect match for sporting goods concept modeling and functional prototyping. With a variety of versatile photopolymers, Stereolithography can create sporting goods prototypes that look and feel like the final product. When you’re ready to move into full-scale production, we have the tooling and injection molding expertise and materials required to win the market.

Entertainment

The entertainment industry has taken props and costumes to the next level with 3D printing. Special effects teams, games designers and filmmakers are using the design freedom of 3D printing for quick and agile manufacturing. ID-Light is often used in the entertainment industry to build large, lightweight models and sets.

Architecture Models

Bring your CAD drawing to life and create detail architecture models in half the time of conventional modeling technologies with 3D printing. Laser Sintering and Fused Deposition Modeling are often used to create complex architecture models that can last far beyond final construction.
