3D Printing: A Manufacturing Revolution

As the 3D space becomes more advanced, industrial applications will become more prevalent, thus revolutionizing the way business operate the connections between 3D printing and fields including robotics, IOT, and cloud computing will become much closer, allowing further reduction of cost as well as acceleration of time-to-market and supply chain management.

Industrial Leaders Are Using 3D Printing
With the help of Stratasys Fortus 3D printing system, Lamborghini took only 20 days to design, build and assemble a 1/ 6 scale prototype for their flagship Aventador, which includes the body. The entire production cost around US$3000, saved up to 92% of the expenses compared to traditional manufacturing methods.Before adidas used the unique, multi-material 3D printing technology, all adidas prototypes were hand-made by 12 technicians using special tools to model every single joint and crease according to 3D specifications. Since the introduction of the Stratasys Objet Connex, a maximum of two people are required to produce the 3D models that accurately simulate the real outer soles of its running shoes.By 3D printing the injection molds with Stratasys Digital ABS material, Unilever is able to achieve the high quality associated with traditional manufactured prototypes, while ensuring that the high temperatures and pressures of the injection molding process can be sustained.
