  • 3D Models and Printing

    Posted on August 19th, 2016 admin No comments

    3D printing is the process of making a physical object or model from a digital file by using a printing machine that typically layers many thin pieces of material. 3D printing is used for rapid prototyping and manufacturing. It’s a modern method of manufacturing solid objects that is cost and time efficient because people can email their digital files to get printed, the creation of models is at a much lower cost than a traditional machine, and the materials are sturdier and more adaptable which opens up a wider range of uses.

    Whether you need a lightweight display, scale model, prototype or part, CalCo Cutaways has the ability to turn your digital dream into a reality and make your product happen with our 3D printing services. With a computer-aided design (CAD) file, we can create accurate models of your product in full size or scaled down dimensions. A variety of options (colors, sizes, materials) are available, and printing can be done in as little as a day. This allows our customers to market their products faster and sell the features of their products without investing in high production, shipping and display costs.

    No CAD file available? We can use the actual parts of your product to make a lightweight copy of the original. Once it’s painted, it is difficult to tell the difference between the original and the copy until you lift it up.

    3D models are real objects that are great for training since they show the product’s components, provide hands-on experience, and promote tactile learning. The product is real, visible and much easier to understand whether it’s a prototype, scaled down model or actual sized product.

    Providing your audience with a hands-on 3D view of your product is always more effective than just a photo on a brochure page or website, right?

    But what if your product is too heavy and cumbersome (read: costly) to ship around and bring into offices and meeting rooms? Read on. . .
