How can doctors and physicians better visualize a patient’s anatomy before they ever operate on that patient? How can researchers create better models to study the human body and analyze complex vessels and structures? How can they make flat 2D images come to life in the physical 3D world?
Leading academic and biomedical research uses patient CT image data to create a computer-based anatomical model and print it on a Solidscape high precision three-dimensional printer. The model is cast in transparent material so researchers can conduct fluid dynamics experiments and prepare treatment protocols.
How can a manufacturer use a new and radically effective way to get things done, transform their process, reduce costs and shorten lead times without a significant tooling investment? Through the use of silicone. But the challenge is to mold a pattern to create silicone tooling that is perfect in every way – detail, finish, repeatability, and castablility.
Because the Solidscape tolerances are so exacting and the surface finish and detail are so precise, a pattern maker can create a part or tool directly from the original 3D printed part with no costly post processing hand finishing.
Whether a manufacturer needs to make a few or a short run volume of an item, using industrial additive manufacturing 3d printing for investment casting or master mold making is cost effective. Solidscape’s rapid prototyping machines perfectly produce parts with complex geometries, cavities, overhangs and undercuts that have been impossible to achieve with machining or traditional tooling methods.
Because Solidcape produces the industry’s highest precision models that are suitable for direct casting, manufacturers can reduce their total cycle time from weeks to days while eliminating costly milling processes and post-process finishing.
When is casting considered “micro precise”? When creating small pieces or working mechanical parts that demand precision. When producing the highest quality surface finish on models with intricate and critical micro details is mandatory. When demanding and complex design geometries (such as angles, curves, cavities, hollows, and varying wall thickness) are required.
Solidscape’s three dimensional printing solution combines the industry’s highest resolution printers with materials that yield 100% castability with no material shrinkage or post-processing required.
We live in a richly textured, visual 3D world. But how can people with low sight or no sight experience all the details sighted people do? And how can sighted visitors at large museums, galleries and heritage sites better understand the scale and context of them? Though tactile interpretation, museums can create tactile models based on universal design and access for all.
Solidscape’s three dimensional printing generates high quality finished wax originals of such tactile detail, they can move directly into casting, producing detailed, durable and intricate models.
