Great 3D Prints start with Great Designs.
Different 3D Printing processes have different strengths and weaknesses, Design for Additive Manufacture exploits these strengths and minimises the weaknesses to obtain an exceptional product as an output.
At Elite Engineering WA, we know that great 3D prints start with great designs. That’s why we use Design for Additive Manufacture to optimise your product, ensuring that it’s both high-quality and cost-effective.
With our expert design skills and wealth of experience, we can help you go from initial concept to prototype or product in just a few days, rather than the weeks or months it can take with other methods.
Design for Additive Manufacture allows you to take advantage of the strengths and weaknesses of different 3D printing processes, resulting in an exceptional output. By consolidating multiple parts into a single piece, you can reduce manufacturing costs and assembly time. With 3D printing, previously impossible parts are now possible, including parts with internal cavities and complex internal ports.
Additionally, 3D printing is an additive process, which means that you can add material only where it’s required, resulting in significant weight reductions. This also helps to reduce waste material, making 3D printing a more environmentally-friendly manufacturing process.
Design for Additive Manufacture allows you to optimise your product through:
- Part Consolidation - with 3D Printing you are able to consolidate multiple parts (that had to be split up because of the manufacturing process or complexity) into a single part.
- Complex Part Design - previously impossible parts are now possible with 3D Printing. Internal cavities, complex internal ports, etc, are now possible.
- Weight Reduction - 3D Printing is an additive process which means you have to option to add material only where it is required, which equals significant weight reductions.
- Waste Reduction - Unlike subtractive manufacturing, additive manufacturing only uses the material required to produce the parts which cuts down on waste material. Which is both great for the environment but also reduces part cost.
By leveraging Design for Additive Manufacture, we can help you achieve the highest quality 3D printed products, while also reducing costs and waste. Trust Elite Engineering WA for your next 3D printing project and let us bring your ideas to life with expert design and manufacturing.
