What Can A 3D Printer Do For You?
At Microway we believe that MakerBot 3D printers can add a whole new dimension to your work. At least, it has for us. Here are some real-world applications of 3D printing that we’ve performed in-house.
We’ve saved both time and money bringing our ideas to life without the costs and waiting associated with normal prototyping services.
Part of the heat pipe technology we’re developing, this tube was printed using dissolvable support material.
Another picture of the tube, this time separated from the support material and along-side the auger that it is paired with.
We’ve recently installed a new IP phone system at our headquarters, which required that we use a new intercom system. Our mechanical engineer designed and printed an enclosure for this system that we’re using in multiple locations.
3D printing has applications outside of just engineering. Many of our customers benefit from visualizing their work, as you can see from these 3D-printed molecules. Taking a computer model and making it into a 3D-printed model is actually an easy process. You can read more about it here.
