  13. 13. PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT
  14. 14. FUSION by SHOCKATOO: WEARABLE ELECTRONIC • Smartband with built-in accelerator, microphone, microprocessor and Bluetooth 4.0 • Integrates the audio of music, visuals of concert lightshow and kinetic energy of dance • Final prototype needed to include the flex, finish, and clarity to ensure proper light transmission, fit, form and function of manufactured product • Prototype and testing iterations completed within two weeks
  15. 15. concept modeling
  16. 16. BEAM by SUITABLE TECHNOLOGIES: REMOTE PRESENCE DEVICE (RPD) • RPD with all-in-one monitor and audio system, charging dock, and interactive software for users to connect remotely • Audio system includes 6 microphone arrays to reduce background noise and cancel echoes • Needed to develop a specialized audio dampening component • Created 12 prototypes with complex geometries and quick turnaround • Cycle times 1-2 days, cost saving $35,000
  17. 17. concept modeling
  18. 18. TOOLING APPLICATIONS • Blow Molding • Fiber Layup • Injection Molding • Investment Casting • Jigs and Fixtures • Metal Hydroforming • Modular Fixtures • Molded Fiber • RTV Molding • Sand Casting • Spin Casting • Thermoforming
  19. 19. concept modeling
  20. 20. THE ZERO THEOREM • A sci-fi movie directed by Terry Gilliam • Low volume production; more cost effective • Houses a Galaxy tablet • Custom app for buttons with conductive foam
  21. 21. KELLY MANUFACTURING • Line of aircraft instruments • Lead time for 500 units has been shortened to three days • Direct digital manufacturing reduces instrument part cost 5% and lead time 93% • FDM provided substantially better dimensional accuracy than the urethane casting process
  22. 22. PDS SOLUTIONS FOR MS INSTRUMENTS, INC.: MRI HOUSING • MRI device for lab animals • Low volume production requirement • Evaluated traditional manufacturing methods vs. 3D printing • 3D printing and finishing the PC models was quicker and less costly: eliminated tooling costs, allowed for printing inventory on demand, no re-tooling costs for design changes
  23. 23. CASE STUDY: 3D PRINTED EXOSKELETON
  24. 24. concept modeling
  25. 25. SURGICAL PLANNING Magnetic Resonance (MRI) Computed Tomography (CT Scan) UltraSound (US Scan)
  26. 26. • Flow of blood inside vessels is very hard to model on a computer • Why not print the design and test it in the real world? • Objet elastomeric materials closely imitates the mechanical properties of the blood vessels • Clear materials allow flow visualization using particle imaging (PIV) CARDIOVASCULAR ANALYSIS
  27. 27. concept modeling
  28. 28. • Sterilization —Gamma Radiation, Ethylene Oxide, Steam Autoclave, Plasma, Chemical, etc. • Bead Blasting • Bonding and Gluing • Electroplating • Mass Finishing • Sanding and Painting • Sealing • Thermo • Vacuum Metalizing POST PROCESSING
