Hear from Formlabs Applications Engineering Lead Jennifer Milne, with a roundup of some of the most creative advanced workflows where 3D printing is used as a stepping stone to more economical or functional end use parts. She’ll cover how one design firm developed a new ceramic homeware product, starting out by direct printing in Ceramic resin, and evolving their process towards printing molds to deliver a unique digitally designed product that was affordable and scalable to produce for online retail.
Packed with visual examples of everything from slip casting porcelain to electroplating parts to create functional physics apparatus, we hope you’ll come away with an appreciation for how hybrid workflows with SLA parts can help you reduce cost per part, scale to meet demand, and take advantage of a wider range of materials in the production of end-use parts.
Tune in for some inspiration on new ways of working to advance your own process or to stay on top of trends and capabilities you might not expect from affordable SLA 3D printers.
Attendees of this webinar will learn:
- Why a hybrid approach can lead to a more reproducible, affordable, and functional end-use product, without the material limitations of direct 3D printing.
- How a design firm moved from a direct printing approach to a hybrid one, saving time, money, and ultimately allowing them to create a novel ceramic homeware product they were able to quickly bring to market.
- How moldmaking using 3D printed masters and reusable or sacrificial molds can allow you to produce parts in porcelain, precious and non-precious metals, silicone and biocompatible flexible materials.
