3D Printing Solutions that Make the Design Process Flow


Published on

Using Objet’s rapid prototype technology, ISO 9001:2008 company Griswold Controls has developed techniques with 3D printing and rapid prototyping that minimize the time and costs to develop new products.
This webinar covers the major areas of impact potential for your customers, suppliers, manufacturing team and what every stakeholder desires; a healthy bottom line to strengthen the business.
Additionally, Objet talks about how its technology redefines the engineer’s toolset. With new tools and new techniques, you can approach design goals from a completely new perspective. Objet shares how Griswold Controls uses Objet’s products to transform the design process and save money.
In this webinar you will learn:
– How Objet 3D Printing has redefined the Engineer’s toolset by providing a new perspective
– How to cut cost with a quicker and more effective design process
– About Prototype Parts made for testing and functionality
– How 3D Printing provides a communication tool that benefits all departments
