Creatz3D would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who joined us at the Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo Singapore from February 6th to 7th at Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre.
As a regular participating exhibitor, Creatz3D was there to share our 3D printing knowledge and expertise with attendees and convey how specific 3D printing solutions could assist them in overcoming challenges and constraints that are common with using traditional manufacturing methods.
Alex Wang, Senior Territory Manager for Stratasys Singapore gave a talk about the 3D printing industry in motion from Stratasys’ eyes on the first day of the trade show. The following are key takeaways from his speech:
- 3D printing has gone beyond prototyping thanks to technological advances, as we move towards cost-effective production of end-use.
- 3D printing offers specialized solutions for businesses rather than the traditional “one size fits all” solution.
- 3D printing market of today in Asia still lacks greatly in terms of investment, penetration and holds vast untapped growth potential.
- Stratasys Infinite Build System flips FDM 3D printing on its side to create strong, custom parts and tooling of unlimited lengths with repeatable mechanical properties.
- Stratasys Continuous Build 3D Demonstrator is a 3D printer on a robotic arm that allows for very precise geometry creation of small-sized functional parts through an 8-axis motion system.
- Voxel Print manipulates microscopic voxels to achieve 3D printed effects and properties not possible before.
The following day, Creatz3D’s General Manager Mr. Sean Looi unveiled Desktop Metal’s Bound Metal Deposition Technology System which had drawn much attention from local companies as well as overseas visitors.
The key highlights of his speech:
- Metal 3D printing of today accounts for less than 1% of the $1 trillion metal parts produced by the top 10 manufacturing countries.
- DM’s Studio System is 10x affordable compared to other metal-based printing systems and is safe for use in an office environment.
- The Studio System is fully automated without requiring specialized operators to generate support material. This makes it less complicated to use than most metal printing systems.
- The Studio System’s precision allows for the production of high-quality parts, with densities between 96-99% depending on the alloy used. It uses the same MIM (Metal Injection Molding) materials that allows access to a mature supply chain and well-studied process controls.
- Patented Separable SupportsTM feature that simplifies post-processing and allows supports to be easily separated by hands.
- The Production System which will be available in 2019 is the first metal 3D printing system built for mass production. It is 100x faster and 20x cost-effective than existing metal-based systems.
- A preview of the generative design tool called “Live Parts” that simplifies 3D print designing by auto-generating parts in real-time. One unique feature is that it incorporates Finite element analysis (FEA) that predicts how the part reacts to real-world forces and whether it will break, wear out, or work the way it was designed for.
A variety of 3D printed models, samples as well as case studies including a live demo of the 3D printed Multi-Axis Vacuum EOAT which Creatz3D did as a collaboration with Universal Robots was also on display. Visitors to our booth were presented with the various possibilities that could be achieved with 3D printing technology, both functionally and aesthetically.
