Today, 3D printing technologies have allowed an ever-growing number of creators, designers, engineers, physicians, researchers, academics and manufacturers to unleash and multiply the benefits of rapid in-house 3D printing across the entire creation process.
CADD Centre is the only organization addressing end to end design needs offering customers the state-of-the-art multifunction systems not just in 2D Wide Format Printers but also in 3D Printers. For several years now, CADD Centre has been partnering with leading 3D Printer OEMs from Europe and U.S.A . CADD Centre addresses customer requirements in the 3D printer space across several industry segments like product design, rapid prototyping, manufacturing, education, jewellery, healthcare, Architecture and consumer products.
Presenting the CADD Centre PLASTO 600! Inspired by the hugely successful PLASTO 200 printer, the PLASTO 600 is twice as high, tripling the maximum build height. The build volume of the PLASTO 600 is an impressive 230 x 270 x 600 mm, making the maximum print volume 37.2 liter. This expands the range of applications immensely, meeting the growing need for a large build height by a lot of customers. CADD Centre’s objective is to make high end techniques affordable and accessible for a wide audience.
The CADD Centre Plasto Desktop Professional 3d Printing is finding many uses from…
Rapid prototyping is a group of techniques used to quickly fabricate a scale model of a physical part or assembly using three-dimensional computer aided design (CAD) data.Construction of the part or assembly is usually done using 3D printing or "additive layer manufacturing" technology
The CADD Centre Plasto 600 is a perfect fit to turn out quick parts exported from a CAD Design software. The Plasto 600 is integrated with a 3dP application that accepts STL files from all CAD softwares like CATIA, Pro Engineer, Inventor, 3d Max, Autodesk Maya and so on. A good STL file fed in to the Plasto 600 becomes a great prototype within minutes.
Future applications for 3D printing might include creating open-source scientific equipment to create open source labs or other science-based applications like reconstructing fossils in palaeontology, replicating ancient and priceless artefacts in archaeology, reconstructing bones and body parts in forensic pathology, and reconstructing heavily damaged evidence acquired from crime scene investigations. The technology is also currently being researched for building construction.
3D printing is the latest technology making inroads into the classroom. 3D printing allows students to create prototypes of items without the use of expensive tooling required in subtractive methods. Students design and produce actual models they can hold. The classroom environment allows students to learn and employ new applications for 3D printing.
Students discover the capabilities with 3D printing. Engineering and design principles are explored as well as architectural planning. Students recreate duplicates of museum items such as fossils and historical artefacts for study in the classroom without possibly damaging sensitive collections. Other students interested in graphic designing can construct models with complex working parts. 3D printing gives students a new perspective with topographic maps. Science students can study cross-sections of internal organs of the human body and other biological specimens. And chemistry students can explore 3D models of molecules and the relationship within chemical compounds.
Among architects 3D printing has become more and more popular over the last few years. Although a 3D printer is not to be ‘expected’ in every architects’ office yet, that will probably change soon.The design process in which architects are involved takes a lot of time and is often very stressful, handmade Styrofoam scale models are a waste of precious time in that sense. To save some of their valuable time, many architects already adopted 3D printing into their design process, the emergence of affordable desktop 3D printers made this possible.
Besides the time-saving value of 3D printed scale models, the advantage of the 3D printing technique could go beyond this practical use. It also enables architects to experiment with complex shapes and forms.
At this moment leading architects in Europe are developing parametric design models within the 3D BIM software, this means that one computer model serves all; plans, renderings and 3d print files to inform the client. The BIM model not only immediately generates the 3d printing file, but also all the drawings for the constructor to start building. ‘The 3D printer becomes more and more important for me as a part of the design process. Changes to a design can go very quickly on the computer without noticing the spatial consequences, a quick 3D print helps me to see and understand the computer model.
