With the objective of sharing strategies for the 3D Ecosystem and how they can be utilized to enhance work productivity, the ‘Inside 3D Printing’ Conference and Expo 2016 was the place to be for not only 3D Printing enthusiasts but 3D Printing suppliers and various institutions as well. Held at Suntec Convention Centre from January 26th to 27th, the event featured specialized and cutting edge 3D Printing, 3D Scanning, 3D Software and robotic technologies along with seminars centered around the topic of the capabilities, trends and developments in 3D related technologies.

As a participating exhibitor, Creatz3D was there to share our 3D Printing knowledge and expertise with attendees and provide them with specific 3D Printing solutions that would aid them in overcoming the constraints faced when using traditional manufacturing methods. For instance, a 3D Printed injection mold made using PolyJet Technology was displayed at our booth to showcase how 3D Printing can be used as an alternative solution to production delays due to constant design iterations in the mold (In the case of a high mix, low production volume scenario). Through 3D Printing Technology, manufacturers are able to re-design the mold at any time and generate unique and customized designs, hence leading to increased efficiency and subsequently, time and cost savings.

In addition, a variety of 3D Printed models and samples showcasing the use of post processing methods such as painting, sanding and chrome plating to enhance product quality were also shown at our booth, thus enabling visitors to view the various possibilities that can be achieved through 3D Printing Technology, both functionally and aesthetically.

Asides from that, Creatz3D also shared our insights about the latest trends and developments in 3D Printing through the seminar session held on the first day of the exhibition. During the seminar session, Mr. Sean Looi, General Manager of Creatz3D highlighted a few industries that are anticipated to have an increased adoption rate of 3D Printing technology in their work process such as the Medical and Education industries. For example, it was mentioned that 3D Printing Technology would be used in not just training models but surgical planning, customized implants and prosthetics as well, hence making the medical industry one to watch out for with regard to 3D Printing innovations.

However, despite the growth in the number of industries that are implementing 3D Printing Technology, Mr Sean Looi strongly emphasized on the fact that Additive Manufacturing/3D Printing was all about the ‘FIT’. Rather than integrating 3D Printing Technology into their work flow straight away, organizations, businesses and individuals were advised to evaluate the feasibility and suitability of the technology based on their requirements and needs, so as to ensure optimal success and benefits.

Last but not least, attendees were also able to have a first-hand experience of the 3D Printing process through our uPrint SE Plus and Objet 30 Pro on site, thus allowing them to develop a clearer idea of how it works as well as the various factors to take into consideration when designing their products or parts such as the size of the 3D Printer’s build tray.
